Utilities Week Live 2015

E72-Proflight-Bags-#UWLIVEWhat a great show! We had a fantastic time at this year’s Utilities Week Live and are really hopeful we might have some exciting new ideas in the pipeline in the future! We enjoyed a short walk around the show to explore the wider market and it has been brilliant to visit a new show for Proflight Bags.

It was certainly a tiring week that had taken plenty of planning but the event didn’t disappoint. Utilities Week Live managed to draw in a steady crowd for all 3 days of the event, meaning a nice consistent steam of enquiries for us… as well as plenty of competition entries.

Our sister company Banner Box had printed a wonderful bright and bold stand which we think really made Proflight Bags an eye catcher! (If you would like to find out more about how the exhibition stands are made please click here). The fabulous stand and our little rubber ducks competition proved a great team in attracting enquiries. We were overjoyed with the amount of entries we had into the competition (even if a few crafty devils pinched a few ducks while we weren’t looking!) we have let the winners know and there bubbles are in the post as we speak. Congratulations to our winners and thank you once more to all the entrants for making a fun event.rubber-duck-thin

… And so how many ducks? We had a wacky range of guesses ranging from 60 to 600! There were 166 ducks in total and none of the 100+ entries got the answer perfect. However, we are very pleased to announce Lindsay Howarth, from the Amey Innovations Team, as our winner (or nearest guess!) Our lovely rubber ducks have found new owners, many of which were re-homed with our wonderful team of sewing machinists as a bit of fun.

Proflight Bags hopes you enjoyed the show as much as we did and hopefully we might even be able to come back next year with a bigger and better stand and competition!

Showtime – Stand E72 Proflight #UWLIVE

E72-Proflight-Bags-#UWLIVEWe’re moving into day 2 of Utilities Week Live 2015… and its been a busy week already at stand E72 and were looking forward to more of the same! Monday saw us head down the motorway to put our great new stand in position, ahead of another busy but exciting day yesterday.

We have been overwhelmed by the steady flow of interest in our diverse range of bespoke bags (fingers crossed days 2 and 3 continue like that!). We’ve attended the show with a range of stowage, line bags and rucksacks. As our range is generally made to client specification it was challenging to determine the best examples of what we do to show you.

Director Paul Noble commented, having spent yesterday on the stand “As it’s our first time here at Utilities Week Live we were a little unsure what to expect, but so far we have been very impressed with the show, stand and visitors. Really enjoyable show so far and I’m hoping today is just as encouraging”

We also have a little show competition running, simply guess how many rubber ducks are in the perspex pipe on the stand, get it right and win a bottle of fizz! Sound easy? Well I’ll tell you it took a while to count them all!

Proflight are at the NEC event until Thursday 23rd April, we are hopeful to meet and discuss more potential bag solutions in the next couple of days. We would like to say thank you to the show organisers and good luck to all of you kind enough to spend a little time chatting to us and entering our competition.


Utilities Week Live Trade Show Appearance

Utilities Week Live 2015Proflight Bags are pleased to announce our attendance at Utilities Week Live later this year. It will be our first time at the show and we are hopeful to discover some new exciting opportunities. We will be exhibiting from stand E72 on the 21st-23rd of April – only a couple of month to go already!

Proflight bags will continue to be a passionate supplier of bags to the emergency services. However, we want to expand our desire for lifesaving bags, keen to make any high risk task or equipment management as safe and secure as possible. Hence we found ourselves exploring solutions within the utilities sector.

Workers in some of these industries don’t often get the respect they deserve in managing and ensuring we all have heat, light and water. We are hoping to be given the opportunity to show what Proflight can do and how we can limit risk and encourage easier, safer working through bespoke solutions.

Currently we have small involvements within the market with our high voltage rescue kit. The kit holds various items which help in high and low voltage rescue. The bag hangs on D-rings and is easily unzipped to reveal pockets for each assigned item.

We also manufacture a bespoke carry bag which was designed specifically for sensitive gas pipe work inspection camera equipment. The bag is strong and primarily protective. Thick foam surrounds the equipment and a stiffened base ensures a highly supportive bag.

Proflight is hopeful we will find more situations which require innovative and specialist work with the final objective of ensuring employees have the perfect equipment to help in potentially dangerous or hazardous work. If you have the opportunity to attend the NEC for the show, please do come and find out more… We’re sure to have a competition on too!

Celebrations & Congratulations

It has certainly been a hectic but exciting couple of weeks here at Proflight, after the Emergency Services Show. We have been able to send our congratulations to competition winners and enjoy new connections. We had a great time and really enjoyed discussing new ideas and future plans.
The lovely Emma, our competition winner from the Wednesday of the show very kindly let us know her her bottle of celebratory champagne had arrived safely. Along with of course her new Proflight mug!
“A big thank you to Proflight Bags for my competition prize at the Emergency Services Show, it was lovely champagne!”
We would like to add we had not intended on drinking the champagne out of the mug, but if you want to keep it all for yourself then maybe it would be a good idea.

Overall, we had a really great time at the show. We are certainly hopeful we can be there next year for more fun and competition. Well done and thank you to all of those who got involved and we hope your new Proflight mugs arrived safely over the weekend.

What a Show! ESS 2014

Around 4000 guests flocked to the NEC again this year for the Emergency Services Show. Proflight were pleased to be involved again this year and were thrilled with the response our new bigger better stand received.

The show event held over 2 days saw a huge range of state of the art and potentially lifesaving equipment. Proflight is pleased to report that we had a great show. Appreciating the efforts of other exhibitors and enjoying the chance to discover a few potential new opportunities.

Our sister company Banner Box also at our Staveley base assisted with the show by creating the striking print which mounted on our fabric tension system stand. We were able to enjoy the additional room and benefits of a more wow factor stand than in previous years. We took the opportunity to take a diverse range of our bespoke bags to the show and were pleased with the response.

Proflight  also decided to host a show competition to win a rather extravagant bottle of champagne, simply guess how many mugs are in our Proflight bag. This proved more challenging than expected but I can confirm we had 1 clear winner on each day. These were Emma Spratt and Keith Howlett – Congratulations and enjoy your yummy prize. We would like to thank everyone for their efforts and are pleased to say a Proflight mug is on its way to some of the runner-up entrants.

The Proflight team would like to take the opportunity to send thanks to the many exhibitors and guests which make the show a success.  We particularly enjoyed discussing some new avenues for Proflight and are hopeful we will be there again next year.

Show Competition Proflight

The big day is approaching fast and our appearance at the Emergency Services Show is just hours away from starting as we’ll be up early tomorrow getting prepared and taking our stand, equipment and of course range of bags to the show-ground of the NEC Birmingham.

We are excited to be hosting our own competition! This year we have decided to go for a little bit of an unusual “guess the” competition. The correct or nearest guess will receive a lovely bottle of bubbly, we like there to be more than 1 winner though! So some of the nearest guesses will receive a surprise Proflight mug after the event. Here are a few pictures to give some of you a head-start counting!  Hope to see you at the Emergency Services Show Wednesday! Good Luck and Happy Counting…
