JMT Indisplay Announces The Appointment of New MD

Tuesday, 15. December 2015

We are pleased to announce the appointment of Richard Jarvill as our Managing Director, who replaces out going MD, Alex Robertson.

Alex is retiring from his role after two and a half years at JMT Indisplay. He's overseen a number of key achievements within the business; from establishing environmental procedures, through to making investments that have expanded upon, and improved, our services. But we're not losing him altogether, after completing a thorough handover with new MD, Richard, Alex will continue to work with us in a consultancy capacity.

“I am sad to be leaving JMT Indisplay at this time as, with a new Group CEO now on board, the future looks very bright for the company. I have enjoyed my time at JMT and made many friends across the industry, and I'd especially like to thank my superb team for its commitment and support over the last few years. I am pleased that I have been able to ensure a smooth and effective handover to my successor, and am confident Richard will fit in very well. I wish him and the company every success for the future.”
 
Richard brings significant experience to JMT Indisplay. He joins us from a Canadian Oil and Gas company where he headed up operational support within the logistics group of the corporation. Prior to this, he's held roles in operations, leadership, policy and technical programme management so he's no stranger to implementing ‘operational excellence’.
 
Richard looked forward to his appointment, saying, “I’m extremely fortunate to be joining JMT Indisplay at an exciting time, and am looking forward to the challenges that lay ahead. I have some big shoes to fill; Alex is a knowledgeable individual who has done great things with the company and I’m fortunate to have conducted an extensive handover. JMT Indisplay will remain focused on providing a quality service to our customers and I will be looking to enhance and expand our services further in the near future. I am looking forward to working with the new CEO, Jasper Stultiens, who has outlined a strong commitment and further investment in the UK business, which is great news for JMT and especially our clients"

Friday, 30. October 2015

Five JMT Indisplay employees have been congratulated by Jasper Stultiens, the CEO of Boemer Rental Services Group, JMT's parent company after they all gained the Level 2 NVQ Certificate in Customer Service.

Michelle Kaye, Jackie Power, and Shafia Begum from JMT's customer services division, key account manager Helen Ditchfield, and marketing assistant Melody Mount, were all presented with the award after partaking in a nine month course.

The qualification covers a number of key areas, from customer rights and responsibilities to data protection, and will ensure JMT staff have a deeper understanding of the skills and responsibilities that are paramount to delivering highly professional customer service.

JMT's managing director, Alex Robertson, explained why the qualification was chosen, saying, “For any business good customer service is important. But, working in an industry like the events industry it's essential that staff are more than just polite and courteous; they need to be well informed, be able to handle situations when they arise and, ultimately, prevent incidents from occurring.”

Telling People You Are Going To Be There

Thursday, 02. July 2015

You've decided to take the plunge and put in a presence at your first exhibition. You will have booked your stand, confirmed the stand number, started organising your show graphics and planning the content. But, whatever your exhibition goals are you're not going to achieve them unless people know where, and when, you are exhibiting. Whether your ambitions are to generate a certain number of pre-qualified leads, raise awareness of your brand or boost your product's profile you need to communicate effectively to customers and prospects.

 

It might seem obvious, but you would be surprised at the number of business that seem to think that  simply being at an exhibition is enough. The truth is that you have to push the message out to everyone, at every opportunity and that takes a little forward planning of its own.

 

Start publicising your intention to exhibit as soon as you have confirmed a stand number at your chosen event. You want to reach all your customers, prospects and key influencers. Begin with using all your usual outbound channels – web, email, newsletters, and standard post. Start blogging about your preparations, and include shorter updates on your website news section. If you tweet, tweet the links to your blogs and news articles with every development. Use your social media networks like Facebook and LinkedIn too, but remember not to simply duplicate the same message on every platform, as your audience will not warm to reading the same thing in three different places!

 

Depending on the volume of your outgoing post, you might consider stamping or stickering envelopes with your exhibition details e.g. 'See us on stand J301 at Sprocket World 2016, July 7-10, at the NEC!' or something similar. Likewise, if you amend all company outbound email signatures to do the same, you can broadcast the message far and wide with minimum effort. In digital communications, remember to include a link to your own website news and the show website wherever possible.

 

Next you should find out what the organiser is offering in terms of marcomms support. Find out if there are opportunities for mentions on social media, the show site, or other supporting communications. Check to see whether there are exhibitor profiles or listings on the show site. Make full use of every opportunity offered!

 

Organisers and venues want your stand to be well attended as much as you do – and should support you in all your efforts to achieve this. If you can time your exhibiting to coincide with some newsworthy activity, unveiling a new model or product, or launching a new brand, then you have an ideal combination for a press release you can distribute to your industry trade press and other appropriate outlets to reach your target audience. You may even want to invite the press to your stand to see what's new.

 

In brief, tell everyone! But plan your messaging strategy to release a steady stream of well differentiated news and updates building up to the event, and spread it across several channels.

What to Consider When Exhibiting

Wednesday, 13. May 2015

 

Events are working, make sure your stand works too!


Exhibition News
published an article in the April issue based on research by London based venue, Stamford Bridge, seeking to gain insight into the exhibition industry from the attendee's perspective.

With 13 million visitors to exhibitions generating revenues of an estimated £11 billion, and a spend on goods and services estimated to be £100bn sold at or through exhibitions each year, there is plenty of room to think about how to segment and target some of this substantial market. Clearly, it cannot all be achieved with just the furniture and the carpet on a stand but with financial stats of this magnitude, furniture and carpets can't be an afterthought, they must integrate with, support and project the brand impression "to the max".

One of the most interesting sets of data were those pertaining to the demographics of the shows. Age ranges between 30-39 and 16-29 were the most populous, attending 2 or more exhibitions per annum. But the most telling was that the younger group was expanding its attendance at specialist exhibitions, they are active and increasingly so.

Younger audiences are more style conscious, design literate and adventurous, they are also the future of attendance at many shows as they move through the age profile. There is a wealth of research and psychology behind the appeal of colour, textile and surface finish, to varying audiences. Applied colour psychology expert Karen Haller appeared on the Event Magazine website discussing what is a misunderstood marketing tool and one that will always trigger an emotional reaction. Combined with the other aspects of the stand the right furniture, made from appropriate materials and in the desired colour could have a dramatic effect upon how visitors react to a stand.

It must be worth spending time in selecting the right furniture and carpets if there is an opportunity to capture just a small part of the £110bn spent annually.
