Connect WM recently held their first Connect Business Exhibition at The Clarendon Suites, Edgbaston, Birmingham on the 27th February 2013.
One of the exhibitors who chose to take part was Creditsafe Business Solutions Limited who are otherwise known or referred to throughout the UK as CreditSafeUK.
As many will know Connect WM targets assistance for businesses based within the West Midlands region, and although CreditSafeUK are based in Caerphilly, Wales the services which they both offer and provide are can provide great importance to the financial standing of West Midlands based businesses.
Trevor Tierney from Connect WM said “It’s no real secret that the actual promised footfall did not materialise on the day, but that said there were a few pleasant surprises on the day itself”
One of the surprises being referred to was in fact, that CreditSafeUK had actually pitched their products and services to one of the event attendees on the day, and after some further conversations were actually able to sign a deal during the exhibition itself. Something which by CreditSafeUK’s representatives own admission is something that is very rare and something which had not been personally witnessed before by them.
It is also understood that they have at least one or two very strong leads which may also turn into further sales.
Trevor Tierney went on to say "Part of the package for exhibiting at the recent Connect Business Exhibition was the ability to have a video presentation done on the day and inserted within the ConnectWM site within the business listing section, as CreditSafeUK are not based within the West Midlands and although by the looks of it they done really well on the day its not right nor fair that they cannot have their very own Connect WM video presentation done."
"Therefore we have taken strides to ensure that the CreditSafeUk presentation video can be viewed from within the Connect WM site"
