Can you introduce yourself and explain your role in the company ?

I have been for Bodet Software for 4 years, as marketing and communication assistant. I am in charge of events management and webmarketing (website, social networks, emailing, etc.).

Are trade fairs an important growth lever for Bodet Software? if yes, why ?

Absolutely, we exhibit at ten trade fairs in France and abroad every year. We think it is important to attend events dedicated to our business sectors. It is always a good way to improve the brand visibility and meet new potential customers. 

Can you describe quickly the specifications of your stand project ?

We booked a 15 sqm bare stand. The objective was to arrange this space. We wanted to show technical products (cameras, badge readers, etc.), and also build the signage around these products while respecting our graphic chart.

What was the impact of your participation at APS 2019 ?

We welcomed a lot of visitors on our exhibition booth, and around 50 contacts were made this year. We are pleased with our exhibition performance.

What do you expect from a stand builder ?

Important skills from a stand builder should be : proactive approach, responsiveness, the ability to propose trendy designs and the ability to provide quality support.

Before using allostand, how did you compare contractors and select a stand builder ?

We mainly use internet to source our contractors and relationships we already have with stand builders. 

Why did you use allostand ? 

The first stand builder I have contacted was not very reactive. I made more researches and I found the platform allostand.com. I decided to experiment. It is nice to be able to check previous achievements of different contractors.

Would you recommend allostand to an exhibitor?

I would strongly recommend allostand. The website is very clear, the approach is simple and most of all, the process goes fast. You quickly receive a response whether it is positive or negative, and you can start working immediately with the chosen contractor.

Allostand is the first marketplace for exhibitors and stand builders. We help exhibitors compare easily contractors and find quickly the right stand builder. Do you have a stand project on a trade fair or congress? Try allostand to find easily the right contractor!
