Alan & Thomas headline aviation exhibition
Leading insurance specialists Alan & Thomas were recent headline sponsors at AeroExpo 2012, the largest general aviation exhibition in the UK.
Following the recent acquisition of specialist aviation broker, Emery Little, and the subsequent addition of aviation insurance to their field of expertise, the Dorset based insurance specialists saw attendance at AeroExpo as a way of introducing themselves to the industry.
"Emery Little had been big supporters of AeroExpo in the past, so much so that we took over the reigns as headline sponsor of the event for 2012" explains Alan & Thomas Marketing Manager Hayley Baverstock. "As well as meeting existing clients and speaking to new faces, the expo also gave us the opportunity to introduce ourselves to fellow exhibitors and generate working relationships with members of the aviation sector, which will be invaluable as we look to build our aviation team".
Taking place at Sywell Aerodrome in Northamptonshire over three sunny days at the end of May, the expo is thought to have attracted 10,000 plus visitors, many of whom took advantage of the unique fly in option and avoided the queuing traffic!
"The expo has so far been hailed a success for us having generated in excess of one hundred and fifty genuine leads ranging from owners of private light aircraft to members of flying clubs and schools, as well as a number of businesses operating within the sector and we've already been able to secure our first client arising from the show" concluded Hayley.
