With over 17,000 reported Coronavirus cases in 25+ counties, those who planned or were planning on attending conferences, tradeshows, and events are finding themselves with cancellation notices flooding their inboxes. Tens of thousands’ of dollars and even more for some that are lost from business deals not being made on the back of these events are having a dramatic effect on their companies’ bottom lines and financial starts to 2020.
Popshap is not immune to these cancellations as we just had our SXSW and HIMSS events nixed. We were excited to meet with new and existing clients and show-off our latest tech like our double-sided interactive touch screen kiosk. From Bloomberg to Dockers, Mayo Clinic to Cognizant, our clients love the breadth of our product line and innovation in applications to help them move their business forward.
These events are a huge part of a business like Popshaps’ where the product has to be experienced in person to understand the true effect it can have on your customer base. In a world where static images and paper displays aren’t getting a second look, it’s crucial businesses embrace interactive displays, touch screen kiosks, and engaging digital experiences at their next trade show, event, or conference. Popshap does rentals, purchases, and can build completely custom hardware and software, specific to your business needs.
While some of the events are simply being moved the majority have been cancelled and we completely understand it’s in the interest of safety, and certainly wish everyone a very safe, productive, and healthy 2020.
