At SOS we’re committed to giving direct access to our company from both members of the public and health professionals. One effective way we do this is by attending great exhibitions like Kidz Up North organised by Disabled Living.
As a result of the high levels of interest our stand got last year we had a team of six people including members of the marketing team, admin team and our clinicians at the exhibition. A diverse team which attendees appreciated a lot as they were able to get expertise on all manner of SOS; from our products to our services and all the way to business development opportunities.
At our stand our two most popular products by far were the Nessie and the hugely well known P Pod. It was great to see so many parents who had P Pods for their child give us such positive feedback, one mum was heard telling her friend “that’s what I wanted you to come here for, look, that’s the P Pod we had for our Sarah!”
The Nessie also got a lot of attention from carers and therapists alike where demonstrations were given. People loved the way which Nessie invited you to touch it and feel it as well as fulfilling such an important need in physical rehabilitation. It is yet another product of ours that fulfils our vision to provide products that match the needs of all three stakeholders in the client, carer, clinician relationship.
During the day we invited people to enter a competition where they could win their very own P Pod. We had over 100 people entering the prize draw ranging from carers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists and family friends, such was the level of interest at the exhibition!
Near the end of the day the Kidz North organisers read out an announcement from us inviting all entrants to our competition to come to our stand for the grand announcement of the winner. Suddenly there was a rush from all corners of the exhibition with people eager to see if they were the winner!
The lucky and very worthy winner was Andy Dawson from Dukinfield, (a policeman?) and carer to his XXXXX which we will feature in our next newsletter.
We would like to thank everybody who came to our stand and give an extra special thank you to Disabled Living for making the exhibition possible.
