The highly successful launch of Plumbing Travelling Exhibitions (PTE) has generated great interest.

Very simply it is because plumbing technology is being taken to the areas where the plumbers are desperate for this kind of information and the opportunity to chat with exhibitors who are manufacturers/suppliers of such technology.

Bearing in mind that the traditional plumbing supply chain of plumbing merchants is where plumbers go to purchase what they need, considering the wide range they stock it cannot be expected that the trade counters staff can answer every question.

Exhibitors have commented on the fact that they use PTE to learn from plumbers the type of questions they need answers to, and this then enables the manufacturer to provide wider/more detailed information to the merchants. While this is helpful, an exhibitor can really benefit when they have demonstrations of what they are selling. This directs the plumber to ask for the product/system as they have engaged with the manufacturer, seen, felt and experienced the product.

Doing so makes this so much easier for the merchant to provide the right product/system rather than a lengthy discussion that is time wasting and non-compliant having to be returned.

Just watching at Polokwane where there were excellent demos in different forms these attracted greater attention. Even if selling a service like insurance one can easily show the consequences of lack of safety, lack of insurance and so on.
