Combell launches one visitor of the Webwinkel Vakdagen in Utrecht to the cloud!
Combell could not miss the opportunity to attend the largest trade show in the Netherlands that is entirely dedicated to e-commerce. With its sister company Unitt, it presented its range of products and services to the visitors.
The past and the future of e-commerce through more than 100 lectures
For the 9th time already, the largest trade show entirely dedicated to e-commerce has recently been held in Utrecht: the Webwinkel Vakdagen. On Wednesday 21 and Thursday 22 January 2015, the trade show welcomed over 12,000 visitors, most probably attracted by the more than 100 lectures. All the aspects of e-commerce have been covered in the five theme theatres and conference rooms. Classic themes such as marketing and practical conversion tips, but also the latest developments like omni-channel retailing, big data, and even the use of Bitcoins (“How much progress has been made towards the adoption of Bitcoins in Europe and the Netherlands?”) have been discussed.
Attention has also been paid to the practical side of e-commerce; in the lectures on “Logistics & Customer contact”, attention was e.g. paid to packing – a topic that is often overlooked and that will nonetheless be a key factor for home shopping in 2015. The Privacy theme has also been discussed in the lectures on “Payment solutions & Law” – a topic that Internet users find increasingly interesting and for which the law becomes increasingly strict.
Stands that covered all the aspects of e-commerce
But the Webwinkel Vakdagen is obviously more than just lectures. Visitors could visit the many exhibition stands and get information about what the various companies can provide. Among them were advertising agencies, web designers, packing and logistics companies, trade unions and hosting companies: on that day, one could actually build and set up a complete web store from scratch.
And this year, for the first time, Combell was also among the exhibitors, in order to present its range of hosting products and services as a one-stop partner. Now that more than 1 out of 5 Belgian websites have chosen Combell for its hosting solutions, the Ghent-based company also wants to convince the Dutch market of the quality and reliability of its integrated, fully customised solutions.
Combell: sky(diving) and cloud
The Combell stand had a strategic location, right next to the stand of its sister company Unitt, the full-service hosting provider, in order to emphasize the collaboration and complementarity between both companies. Cheerful hostesses wearing flashy silver pants invited visitors to come and visit Combell’s stand and meet the Combell team. Pictures taken during this event can be seen on Combell’s Facebook page.
Those who left their business card have also been in for a chance to win an adventure break in the cloud... not a data cloud though, but an actual indoor skydiving experience. An amazing feel of space, yet extremely secure – just like the cloud services provided by Combell of course! The lucky winner of the “Combell takes you to the cloud” contest can get ready for a unique experience. And the winner is: Frans Pronk of IFRA Creatieve Communicatie
In case you couldn’t make it, do not worry! In March, Combell will attend the Belgian trade show E-Shop Expo on 18 and 19 March 2015 in Tour & Taxis (Brussels). Come and visit us on our stand S31. See you soon?
