iBeani At Gadget Show Live 2016

Thursday, 7 April 2016  |  Admin

What a week it’s been! Last week we headed on down to Birmingham to set up for The Gadget Show Live 2016 at the NEC and it’s been all systems go at iBeani HQ since then. We had lots of our amazing fans pop down to visit us at stand H130, along with some interesting new faces too – more on those later. A big thanks to everyone who came to visit and we hope you thoroughly enjoyed the event.


Setting up at The Gadget Show Live 2016:

As part of exhibiting at Gadget Show Live we had the chance to design & set up our own unique display stand. We opted for a minimal yet functional stand that showcases our products in all their glory. We got lots of really positive comments about both our products and our display throughout the weekend, so thank you to everyone who popped by! You can check out some before and after pictures of the stand below.

Famous Faces:

We had a V.I.P visitor over the weekend at the iBeani Gadget Show Live stand! Amy Williams MBE, Olympic Gold Medallist in the Skeleton and Gadget Show presenter, popped by to say hello and check out the iBeani collection. Her favourite iBeani was our new Cool Cats design, check out some pictures of her visit below.

We’ve also made famous faces of ourselves! Our two directors, Ash and Nigel, were interviewed for ITV Central News by presenter Matt Price. There’s a video of this floating around somewhere out there on the internet so feel free to go and hunt it down. Needless to say we’re thrilled to have been interviewed by such a major news organization and have the chance to spread the word about the iBeani tablet stand!


New prospects for iBeani:

One of the major benefits of exhibiting at The Gadget Show Live is that it gives us a fantastic chance to put the iBeani tablet stand in front of major high street retailers and purchasers and gauge their feedback. We’ve had incredible success this year and we’re delighted to announce that the following deals/partnerships are now in the process of being worked out:

  • Working with Luxury Travel Guide on promoting the iBeani as a high end, luxury travel accessory.
  • Working with a major mail-order company to provide a new outlet and market for sales of the iBeani tablet stand
  • Supplying a major high street retailer with the iBeani tablet stand to stock – more news on this will come soon!

Overall exhibiting at The Gadget Show Live has been incredibly successful for us and we would like to thank everyone who worked so hard to make the whole event run so smoothly.


Our Amazing Fans:

We can’t possibly write about our Gadget Show Live experience without mentioning you lot – our amazing and loyal iBeani fans! It was great to see so many of you over the weekend, from competition winners and long term loyal fans through to our latest iBeani customers. We hope you all had a great time visiting The Gadget Show Live and we hope to see you again soon.

If you bought an iBeani from us whilst at Gadget Show Live please tweet us a picture of it and we’ll retweet our favourites – we’d love to know what your favourite designs are and if you have any unique uses for the iBeani beyond supporting your tablet/eReader.
