It’s show season – out and about with Heber

From a business perspective, Spring means exhibition season. It is always a pleasure to meet old friends and make new ones as Heber travels to the key shows of the year. This year has been no exception with the team out and about exhibiting and visiting some key shows in the electronic engineering calendar across many markets.

The ICE Totally Gaming Show at the ExCel in February is a key event in the gaming calendar and this year has proved to be no exception. Heber was delighted to once again be an exhibitor at the show which brings together the online and offline gaming sectors and features world-leading innovators from all gaming sectors to provide a global perspective on all forms of gaming. All types of gaming and innovation were showcased including a particular favourite of the team, the Alphastreet “Wet Race”, a twist on a mechanical horse racing machine using boats.

The Heber stand showcased its entire gaming product range, focusing on the latest Pluto A400 gaming controller and new XTouch touch-sensitive buttons. The stand proved very busy, offering plenty of opportunity to meet with customers. In addition to our own stand, Heber products were also shown on technology partner AMD’s stand to the delight of Heber Managing Director, Les Ashton-Smith: “Our new Pluto A400 gaming controller is based on the latest AMD Embedded R-Series SOC processor which provides astounding graphics and multimedia performance. We were delighted that AMD included the A400 on their stand at ICE and showed such an enthusiastic level of support for our product.”

Heber has also been busy at other key exhibitions and shows including the ACR Show and KBB Birmingham, the Kitchen, Bedroom and Bathroom show at the NEC in February and early March respectively and EcoBuild at the ExCel. These shows bring together key innovators in their sectors and all have increased the level of visitors this year. The shows are critically important to Heber’s hydro division and it was a real positive that the ACR Show has chosen this year to include heating and ventilation and heat pumps as well as more traditional areas of the market.
