Yorkshire Mafia Conference 2012

After weeks of prepping for the event, sorting out our stand and tweeting all about it….the biggest conference in the North was finally upon us, The Yorkshire Mafia Conference.

The conference was held at the Royal Armouires in Leeds on the 21st and 22nd of March. As soon as we arrived at the event the atmosphere had a really buzz and everyone was full of enthusiasm for what the two day conference had in store. With around 150 businesses exhibiting at the conference, over 3000 delegates expected over the two days and an exciting seminar list the event was set to be a great networking event for all involved full of opportunities and prospects.

We were exhibiting at the conference in the Armouries Hall on stand 8. We’d already set up our stand on Tuesday afternoon so only had a few last minute things to do to get our stand ready, however our trusty Touch Tower which we take along to all conferences blew the screen just before the conference started. It tripped all the electric on our side of the conference hall, leaving many of the stands without electricity. Although the Touch Tower was still a good attraction to have at our stand we couldn’t manage to fix it to load our presentation about our products and services, plus we had lists of memorable geographical numbers which where for sale and available on the day.

It was a fantastic location for our stand as we were right next to the entrance for the seminars being held in the Bury Theatre, which meant we had a good flow of traffic passing by our stand throughout the two days.

Business Link Yorkshire Mafia feature

We’ve featured in this month’s edition of Business Link Magazine in the section about The Yorkshire Mafia Conference.

We can’t wait until we will be exhibiting at The Yorkshire Mafia Conference, which is being held at Leeds Royal Armouries, on Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd March. And we are delighted to be involved in delivering the text messaging solutions for the Conference. Texting is a great channel of communication for the Yorkshire Mafia; in particular for the conference as it will allow them to quickly communicate updates and reminders to the delegates and exhibitors attending the YMC2012.

This isn’t the first time the Yorkshire Mafia has used SMileS, here’s what Geoff Shepherd (Yorkshire Mafia Founder) had to say about SMileS in last years Yorkshire Mafia Conference 2011 showguide;  “Mark Evans and SMileS have been with us since the outset. They’re big fans of The Yorkshire Mafia and we’re big fans of theirs. These guys do the text messaging solutions for the Conference and The Yorkshire Mafia group and we’ve come to rely on their service. It’s simple, smart and highly effective.”
