Q1 2019: Networking, Events & Awards (Part 2)

Earlier, we listed a few of the events we attended in Q1 2019. In part 2, we highlight the rest of the conferences, awards and evenings we’ve been a part of in 2019 so far and our key takeaways from them.

 

South Coast Business Awards Launch – 21st March 2019
The South Coast Business Awards celebrates excellence across different industry verticals and brings together companies in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. We attended a successful launch event in March with a great turnout. We’re excited to see what the awards ceremony on 11th July 2019 will bring.

We’re proud category sponsors of both the Innovation Excellence Award and the Service Excellence Award. These two awards align with our values as a business and we look forward to reading the entries and meeting the finalists. Our MD, Andrew Skipsey, will be part of the judging panel reviewing the award entries. M12 Solutions are a multi-award-winning provider recognised for best customer service, innovative solutions and strong partnerships.

Call and Contact Centre Expo 2019 – 27th & 28th March 2019

The Call and Contact Centre Expo (CCCE19) is Europe’s leading event for Contact Centre professionals welcoming over 10,000 industry professionals and suppliers. As our second year at the event, it was really positive to see a growing number of people attending, networking and reaching out.

We had great conversations over the two days, both around M12’s Contact Centre solution and our Giganet brand. Connectivity underpins modern Contact Centres today and day-to-day operations rely heavily on solid Internet from trusted providers. Our MD Andrew spoke on this topic at the event, discussing why Contact Centres need proven Gigabit speeds and inbuilt resilience.

 

Basingstoke Business Expo – 28th March 2019

In late March, we also attended and exhibited at the local Basingstoke Expo. We have invested significantly in the Basingstoke Exchange to offer businesses in the area some of the fastest speeds at the most competitive rates.

The expo was a great opportunity to meet organisations of all sizes from all backgrounds and to catch up with some existing contacts. From speaking to small web design teams to a larger law firms, it’s clear all types of businesses need reliable and fast connectivity. Too many local organisations were being let down by their provider with slow speeds, poor service and expensive prices, all problems that we aim to overcome.

 

Venturefest South 2019 – 29th March 2019

Held at the Ageas Bowl in Southampton, Venture Fest South brings together innovators, entrepreneurs and investors to showcase the latest technology and share new ideas. Andrew, our MD, was at the conference taking part in the seminars and workshops.

It was fantastic to see so many disruptive start-ups that are implementing new innovations to the local market and pushing boundaries of what is capable. Technology has the potential to completely transform our day-to-day lives and its always exciting to get a glimpse of future innovations.

We’re always looking to grow our local presence and will be attending more events during 2019. If you’d like to find out what events we’ll be at, drop us a message.
