Well we just got back in the office following our second Truckfest of the year, what a fantastic weekend! Truckfest Malvern is always a highlight of our year, despite the lengthy drive and Satnav related mishaps it was a brilliant weekend for us. The weather was gorgeous and the crowd was friendly, what more could you ask for?
We really love these festivals, they’re a unique way to get in touch with existing customers from all over the country, as well as a perfect opportunity to spread the word about who we are and what we do to many potential new customers. Everybody was very happy to come over and talk to us, many customers were more than happy to let us know how much they value the service we provide and were very excited about the European future of SNAP and our brand-new partner mobile app intruck.
After the manic, relentless Truckfest in Peterborough a couple of months ago, it was a nice change of pace to have a more laid-back atmosphere this time, in the fantastic setting of the Three Counties Showground. Our remote-controlled HGV Time Trial is always a favourite with the crowd; kids of all ages, as well as the odd grown up, stepped up to show off their skills – with mixed results.
It was a great weekend and being able to get some face time with our customers is really valuable to us; the feedback, either praise or constructive criticism is very useful. After managing to give out over a thousand balloons and even more goodie bags to the visitors, we headed back to Norwich for a bit of rest before the prep for Truckfest Newark on July 15th and 16th. Hopefully we’ll see some of you there!
