Ground Control exhibit at the Facilities Show
This month, we were back at London’s ExCeL for the Facilities Show, the UK’s largest FM event. Each year the show brings in more than 11,000 FM professionals, plus a further 34,000 professionals from the security, health & safety, field service and fire industries.
It was our 4th year taking part in the show, which continues to be a very successful few days for us, showcasing our service offering to many FM professionals and decision makers across the industry.
At last year’s exhibition, Ground Control’s stand featured an interactive mini robotic mower game, showcasing our grounds maintenance capabilities on steep banked grass areas. Visitors were invited to take part, completing time trials around the track. This year, we created a tree themed target game, where apples are thrown at the target to clock up the highest scoring number. The highest scorer for each day of the event was awarded a bottle of champagne.
Throughout the show we also had a lawn mower up for grabs as part of our prize draw, inviting guests to submit their business cards.
We had great interest in a number of different divisions in the business, including Grounds Maintenance, Arb Utility, Arb Rail, Winter Maintenance, Potholes and more. In total, we scanned a total of 94 leads across the 3 days and the team are being proactive in following up all leads arranging meetings and building on these new relationships.
