The much anticipated Made in Yorkshire Exhibition 2018 took place on Thursday 17th May and ACE were proud to be there in full force, exhibiting as Gold Members on stand 23.

The ACE Team on Stand 23

The event was well attended by an array of companies of all sizes from all over Yorkshire and beyond. The ACE stand was hosted by Managing Director, Mark Peacock, Group Sales Manager, Chris Hyde, Marketing and Health & Safety Manager, Hannah France and Sales Team Representatives Liam Bailey and Gareth Pilmer. We were also joined by Gardner Denver Area Sales Manager, Chris Camsell. The stand was well appointed with example compressed air products and accessories as well as a working indoor and outdoor air conditioning unit which kept guests cool as they attended the stand.

Uniting Yorkshire

As well as close to 100 exhibition stands there was also a seminar room where presentations were given throughout the day from prominent Yorkshire figures. John Prescott, former Deputy Prime Minister and Labour Party Politician also attended the event and gave a presentation as a keynote speaker on uniting Yorkshire industries to further economic growth.

….bags, fluffy bugs and footballs…

Stand 23 was buzzing for most of the day with visitors talking with our Sales Team or with Managing Director, Mark Peacock. Many of whom were keen to discuss using ACE’s products and services within their own companies. We were able to gain many new contacts for potential customers as well as discuss plenty of opportunities for mutual commerce. Business cards were exchanged, ACE Group merchandise was given out (our bags, fluffy bugs and footballs were particularly popular) and everyone left our stand with plenty of information on our products and services.

A Great Opportunity

Our first year at the Made in Yorkshire Exhibition was certainly a success. It was a great opportunity to network with other Yorkshire based business and showcase all that we have to offer. ACE will certainly be making the most of our Gold membership and we are already looking forward to next year’s expo which is set to be even bigger!
