The WP office was very quiet on the 15th and 16th November when a number of the team hosted the Mobil Service Centre stand at MechanEx, the leading automotive tradeshow in the south.
Members of the Automotive, Marketing and Sales teams were all present at the show during the two days where the stand was visited by more than 1000 people.
Not only did the staff man the stand, but they also had to make up a further 400 gift bags at the end of day one. Camille Quenardelle-Bardout, WP’s French intern, commented: “We thought 350 bags would be enough for two days and couldn’t believe we ran out on the first day. At one point there was a queue with a 30 minute wait to try the simulator. It was a real team effort to put more together on Tuesday night, but that’s what I love about WP Group; it’s a real team.”
