Quality of visitors is good, we’ve met a lot of trade customers, also end user customers as well. Some big retailers, which is what we’re here for essentially and at the right kind of level, decision makers. Yeah there’s been a lot of Head of Digital, for major retailers here, a lot of people who are into the media for some of the large high street chains. People who really get involved in making those decisions and creating a brand awareness on the high street, which is what our products do so. Definitely the right format for us, it gives us exposure to people we wouldn’t be able to see generally. So they’re here in one place and we can meet a lot of people at one time. We’ve been really surprised at how good the level has been of visitors and I think we’ll get some good business from it.

I think the audience here is generally a very high standard. Not seen that many students around which is a good sign. It generally seems to be people who are employed in the industry and are actively looking for solutions, or ideas.
Nick Smith, Pixel Inspiration, Technical Director
Oh we’ve had many brand owners from lots of different vertical markets. We’ve had a visitors from BP, we’ve had Lloyds Bank and retail stores,. I think they’ve definitely been the right demographic. We’re talking to digital innovators in those organisations, people in IT, conceptual store developers. I think that the quality of the people we’ve been getting past the show has been excellent and the footfall has been very consistent. Certainly, we’re on the second day now, and I’ve not seen a drop off in the attendance numbers. It looks like it’s a real success for us.

As a new element of the retail show at Olympia, the cost and time invested into exhibiting at RDSE was a calculated risk, but we are confident it’s a risk that has already paid off. Comments from visitors to the stand have really enforced how integral digital signage has become to this market and it is abundantly clear that this aspect of the show has been well received, giving B-Tech a great opportunity to demonstrate our strengths in this field.
Matt Nixon, Area Sales Manager for B-Tech International Ltd
Just a brief note to congratulate you on this year’s event. We were a last minute addition to the show, but the speed of response, clarity of communications and the support offered was impressive and very much appreciated.
Although we booked late and were one of the smallest stands at the event, we were given an equal opportunity to maximise the show, with a great position with lost of passing traffic, which resulted in several hundred customer interactions over the 2 days, and some 70 leads to follow up ranging high end retail stores to international marketing and technology providers.
Jim Martin, Managing Director, HyperSound
We got involved with RDSE show pretty late on due to other commitment but were totally blown away with the response we got from the show. With any new show you aren’t sure on the outcome so we focussed on brand building but we have seen a great return from business leads , channel opportunities and direct sales’. ‘Footfall for the show was excellent with a constant cycle of guests over the two days from the onset, with the calibre of attendees being senior decisions makers. This is a great show that is perfectly complimented by the RDE and RBTE shows.
