Coventry Elex Show Recap

So who just came for the free bacon roll then?

Once again the Brother UK and LabelZone team arrived in Coventry for the penultimate ELEX show of the year.  ELEX, in case you were wondering is a chance for electricians to see all the latest electrical products from leading manufacturers’. 2009 has been a great year for us on the show circuit, the feedback we received was good and attendees grasped the opportunity to see some of the latest industry gear.

The location for this ELEX show was the impressive Ricoh Arena, home of the less-impressive Championship-dwellers Coventry City (sorry, but you know..)

Once again the key focus of the event was the PT-7600, which superseded the PT-2480.  The new improved features of the PT-7600 (Ni-Cad battery & USB connectivity for example) were well received and genuinely give some benefit to the user.  The show stock sold out this time round so for the final event of the year in Sandown Park in Surrey, we’ll be loading up the stand ready for buyers to take a printer away with them.
