ACOS 2018 ends on a high
The 2018 Autumn Coin-op Show celebrated the end of a successful fifth show at London’s Olympia, with exhibitors reporting good business and organises revealing a growth in visitor numbers.
“This year was the fifth ACOS and the show had an upbeat mood. We’ve received good feedback on the quality of visitors, with several of our exhibitors confirming that they have written new business at the show. The show has also attracted more visitors this year with more than 1200 attendees over the two days.”
– Karen Cooke, ACOS show organiser
ACOS’ formula of combining business and networking in a relaxed environment, as well as the new floor layout with central bar and food outlets, was well received, as was the networking evening at the nearby Albion pub.
Louise Janeway, director of exhibitor Hemisphere West was impressed with the show’s atmosphere; “As a first time exhibitor we’ve loved the quality and openness of the show,” commented Louise.
Hemisphere West was one of several new exhibitors joining an established band of leading industry brands, including The United Distributing Company, eLOQ Security, Fantasia Leisure, Project Design & Technology and Shipley Creative.
Tony Glanville, managing director of RLMS Sales was also very happy with the event, confirming, “As always a busy show; we’re seeing the people we need to see.”
Wexel Bingo’s sales and projects manager Chris Shipley agreed, saying, “An enjoyable show that has been a great opportunity to engage with existing customers and also generated interesting new leads.”
At leading licensed and generic plush and prize supplier Whitehouse Leisure International, Sales Director Mark Titterton confirmed that the company had enjoyed a successful ACOS: “Everything has been as it should be and ACOS is a great social event. An excellent show that has exceeded all our expectations,” concluded Mark.
