    Lamma 2020 - Thoughts on Lamma

Let’s do a little Lamma blog then….

Whilst we can’t as Cher once famously sang ‘..turn back time…’ many Lamma exhibitors agree that the move to the NEC (or other indoor exhibition centres) should have taken place 10 years ago or more. Regardless of cost (fairly eye-watering in some cases and requiring strong decision-making with marketing and exhibition budgets) the event is now at a higher standard of professionalism, seems to attract a more even representation of visitors from all parts of the UK, is more attractive to overseas visitors and gives exhibitors more time to talk to potential customers as no-one is rushing to stay warm. All in all, new-style (Version 4?) Lamma works; whether the big tractor and harvesting brands and some notable implement manufacturers decide to give it a go in future remains to be seen…..

From a JP Trett perspective, it’s always a pleasure to see placed candidates in action on their exhibition stand working for the various clients we have successfully recruited for – a quick count-up of around 40 who I have personally placed, a figure which would be considerably higher if some of the non-exhibiting companies were to attend, and there were a good number of dealer staff whose careers we have assisted in attendance too. More pleasing again is that a number of these candidates have progressed within their employer’s managerial hierarchy, continuing to make a difference and adding further value to their business.

With a mix of new client meetings, sit-downs with existing clients to outline their structural and recruitment growth for the year ahead as well as catch-ups with various clients we have previously worked with, all in all, a very successful event for JP Trett – roll-on Lamma 2021!
