Desktop Season!

The BVAA desktop exhibition scene moved into top gear again this spring, with FIVE events being held over a period of just FIVE weeks!

Particularly pleasing was that Rob Boycott and his BVAA support team were able to include some new venues in the mix.

First up on 13th March was a visit to new host Apache, Aberdeen, which featured 18 BVAA exhibitors being rewarded with 38 visitors from Apache themselves as well as Nexen, Premier Oil, etc.

Next day was EnQuest’s turn - another new venue - with a smaller group getting quality time with the Aberdeen company’s small supply chain and specifying team.

On 22nd March we made a return visit to KBR in Leatherhead. 26 BVAA members exhibited and were rewarded with over 90 visitors, making it one of the best attended Desktops we’ve held in recent years! This event also benefitted from visitors from the company’s own customer base.

April 6th saw us at SNC Lavalin in Epsom, with a small cadre of BVAA ‘desktoppers’ meeting with over 40 visitors. And finally on 19th April our team were again at Bechtel in London with 17 members welcoming 55 visitors.

A grand total of over 4500 interactions were made possible via these events – making well over 8000 in the last year alone!
