CIM 2004 will put you at the heart of an IT opportunity as big as the best of the 90s
CIM 2004 is a very exciting prospect. Especially when we delve under the surface and discover the hidden gems. If we look closely at the 2004 proposition we find that there is a perfect co-location of three shows:
- Computers In Manufacturing (CIM) is the leading ERP / MRP event in the country.
- Time Compression Technologies (TCT), the premier event for the hottest technologies and issues for the CAD market.
- Service Management Europe (SME). The most successful event for supply chain and field service management.
So we can see that these events cover all of the areas that CIM did at its peak, and more. The only difference being that now these key areas have their own focus as well as the benefits of being together. Importantly, these events will bring at least as many exhibitors as CIM did at its peak.
CIM retains its position as the largest lead-generating event in the manufacturing industry.
Why should you be at CIM 2004 – let’s get specific!
We’re getting specific about ROI because participation at trade shows in the UK now boils down to a fairly straightforward ROI equation. If your average cost per lead is around £200 and you met just 100 of those gilt-edged, spending now, active buyers at CIM 2003, would you invest £10k in this show?
We’re getting specific because the CIM show has been around for so long, even we sometimes have to remind ourselves why it’s such a cracking business generator. Why it still convinces thousands of senior managers to leave their offices, and their deadlines, and their board meetings and their project teams to spend a whole day at CIM.
- IT is vitally important to their business.
- They can find the depth and breadth of solutions that help them design, source, make and deliver.
- No other UK exhibition has so many manufacturing IT exhibitors.
- No other show gets as many visitors who are actually spending now on the solutions you sell.
And we’re getting specific about ROI because the mix of ingredients in your marketing kit bag grows on a daily basis. Lots of new shows have tried (and failed) to emulate CIM. And lots of conference driven events have vied for a share of your spend (though we’ve always thought that conference delegates go to conferences to learn whereas CIM visitors go to CIM to buy). And tempting though it may be for CIM to trade on its history (and why wouldn’t we when it so clearly works?), CIM couldn’t stay so central if it stayed still.
