Event Marketing Solutions Ltd.
Leading global telecommunications equipment provider Ciena
builds on a highly successful Middle East tour for its EMEA roadshow
with a visit to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
Delegates at the annual global technology event saw working demonstrations of
Ciena’s industry-leading network equipment and software solutions at its unique
mobile ‘Innovation Lab’ exhibition trailer.
Managed by B2B marketing roadshow specialist Event Marketing Solutions (EMS),
Ciena’s campaign has visited 42 venues in 14 European and Middle Eastern countries
since debuting at last year’s Mobile World Congress event. Ciena’s mobile exhibition
trailer has travelled nearly 26,000 miles and spent 39 weeks on the road, clocking
up 92 event days.
The Middle East leg of the tour in December and January reached important clients in
Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Riyadh, Khobar and Kuwait.
Last week, the nearly 60,000 visitors to Mobile World Congress had the opportunity
to gain hands-on experience with Ciena’s intelligent infrastructure solutions,
including some of the most advanced Carrier Ethernet and optical network
technologies on the market.
Following the successful event in Barcelona, Ciena’s roadshow heads back to the UK
before returning to the road to continue its European tour - Paris being the first
EMS designed and managed the innovative, flexible fit-out of the 13.6m exhibition vehicle, which is branded, with multi-lingual capacity that allows different
graphics to be used for each country.
The interior of the exhibition trailer enables Ciena to deliver a
bespoke event for each client they visit, from workshops to theatre style. It
includes a reception area, specially designed fully air-conditioned server rack to
demonstrate and store the high-tech equipment safely, presentation zones with LED
screens, interactive workstation area and private meeting room.
Justin Isles, Client Services Director at EMS said: "Ciena’s arrival at Mobile
World Congress marks a highly successful 12 months engaging with the worldwide
market in a campaign that has broken international boundaries. Each new country has
enabled the Ciena team to build relationships face-to-face with a vast number of
customers, providing a valuable new business platform.
"The success of the Ciena roadshow has been a tribute to the highly effective, and
often complex operational solutions that we can deliver to organisations, which have
a real impact on the bottom line."
