We just got back from our first trade-show in the UK and wanted to take a minute to share how it went.
Marketcircle sponsored the MacUser Awards Show which took place last Thursday, and were proud to have been nominated for Business Software of the Year. Although we didn’t win, we still ended up as a 2011 MacUser Awards Finalist.
Here are a few pics from the event:
Us after finding out we didn’t win
For the following 3 days we had a booth at the London International Technology Show – a show featuring exhibitors in several different industries, with Mac being one of them.
Since the show was a mix of Mac and PC vendors, we were able to talk to quite a few people that were considering switching their PC-based businesses over to Mac. The iPhone and iPad were often mentioned as the precursors that sparked their interest.
The show also featured a “Mac Museum”, showcasing some of Apple’s iconic hardware achievements during the past 35 years. It was interesting but at the same time bittersweet, with the recent passing of Steve Jobs.
We had some help at the booth from local partners, including Bill Verkaik from JG Consulting, and Amal Douglas from DMC Consultancy. Just want to take a second to extend our thanks once again – thank you!
To end this off I’ll share a few photos from the show floor:

And finally, an offtopic photo – a Veyron in the London Bugatti Dealership (I’m a car nut).
…luckily there was a racing simulator at the show to keep me at bay
