Reach out to Alec for marketing support. He can supply or help you sign up for all of the tools below. He can also help with putting your ideas into action because we’re on the same team when it comes to a successful Breakbulk Europe 2018.
In response to exhibitor requests, we have added an email banner for you to use now to promote your company’s participation in the event and prompt customers to sign up for event alerts. The traditional Visit Us at Stand 000 will follow when registration opens at the start of 2018. It’s a simple process to update your company’s email signature in most email programs and a great way to increase awareness of your company long in advance of the event. (No charge for these materials.)
We’ll help you spread news of your accomplishments and expertise to thousands of breakbulk industry members. Three types of news:
We’ll post to Europe Exhibitor news portal shown on each Europe page on the main website, across our social media channels, as well as on our new “perpetual” event guide. (No charge for this service.)
Share your best company video with us and we’ll run it throughout the exhibition on the big screen TVs located on the exhibition floor. Videos should be under three minutes! You can submit a link to Youtube or Vimeo, or send the file itself through a file sharing service such as WeTransfer. (No charge for running your video at the show.)
Are you an innovator? Showcase your breakthroughs and tech-related processes in the TechZone. Demo stations (€3500) and TechTalk (€2500) slots are available and will be awarded on a first come-first served basis.
The best way to make sure your customers visit you at BBEU2018 is by sending personalized invitations. We know this can be a lot of work, so we’ve made the invitations for you, including your personal company code offering each customer a 25% discount off all registration options. Digital invitations are free and we can provide printed invitations with envelopes at our cost or just the artwork for you to print.
Put your company in the spotlight! We host six photo and video contests each year. Each has a theme around moving project cargo and breakbulk. For Breakbulk Europe 2018, we will run a water-themed contest—WaterWorld—for transports involving oceans, rivers, lakes. If there’s water involved, you’re in.
Each entry will be part of a large display at the event, but we have a special perk for exhibitors. This contest will open in spring 2018 to the industry at large, but Europe exhibitors will have the opportunity to enter early and be featured in the Breakbulk Europe Preview (Feb. 2018) that will be distributed to 40,000+. Details to come in late fall. (No charge to participate.)
New for 2018, we have created an online event guide—a complete website focused on participating exhibitors, their news, as well as news about the event, speakers profiles, attending VIP Shipper Club companies and Breakbulk staff. The earlier you add or update your 2017 listing, the sooner you can reach all visitors to the event guide. (No charge for this service, event guide will be available later this month for your update—check back!)
We know you’d like to have your top customers at the event. Here are 5 bonus passes on top of your exhibitor/sponsor allocation for people outside your company that you’d like to see in Bremen. Order your custom invitations that include your logo, RSVP contact and email. Choose a digital image (no charge) or request printed invitations with envelopes at our cost (printed locally).
Breakbulk event videos receive hundreds and sometimes thousands of views. Here’s an opportunity to position your people as experts. You can choose from two themes: 2-MINUTE CHALLENGE focusing on a specific operation and your company’s solution to a particularly challenging part of the job or share your global perspective on an industry topic, which is a good way to showcase your company’s views on important issues we face today.
Note: Video reservations will be taken on a first come, first served basis. €2500 each
Ports, terminals, carriers, barge transporters and related service providers will take a starring role at Breakbulk Europe. Plenty of promotion before the event, inclusion in several publications, spotlight display on the show floor and in a Port Stars video.
