Testimonials

EQUINOX is a great element of our marketing / sales strategy to design professionals , architects and interior designers. It gives us the opportunity to showcase new products and always results in new contacts and project leads.

Tim Barnes, Armstrong World Industries

As a company that works hard at communicating our messaging and brand awareness within the A&D market, AIS has now become the only platform we use in regards to engaging face to face with architects and interior designers. AIS differ from many of its competitors by not being all about simply getting numbers ‘through the door’ but by genuinely interested in cultivating and helping relationships between a supplier and the specifier grow. This is on top of the substantial projects that have come about from us participating in the EQUINOX events. Having a great team to work with also makes it fun and enjoyable and we always look forward to the next opportunity to partner with AIS.

Kevin Moffat, Autex

We’ve participated in Equinox events over the past few years and continue to choose Equinox based on the quality of the visitors attending combined with the quality of the events themselves.  They’re enjoyable to attend as a supplier and offer the us the opportunity to engage with innovative designers, discussing current projects.

Carli Barnes, Locker Group

Over the last few years we have participated in all states with the Equinox events and have found them to be very beneficial to our business. The staff at AIS are very well organised and the events always run smoothly. The attendees get qualified so that we are only getting specifiers which is our target audience. The feedback we get from the attendees has also been positive which is reassuring for us. We are showcasing our products through Equinox again this year with our brand new display and look forward to continuing our association with them moving forward.

Phil Brown, Barben Architectural Hardware

Thank you for hosting such a successful event in Brisbane, our Sales Representative can’t stop raving about it.

Alex Christie, D A Christie

Equinox has been a great investment and has already lead us to several specifications on new projects.

Erica Geddes, SGI Architectural

We have found that EQUINOX is a great way of showcasing our products in a professional yet relaxed atmosphere where architects and designers are often very receptive to learning about new products. We find that the face to face contact is excellent, and essential in delivering our vast product range. We are always pleasantly surprised by the quality and turn out of attendees and their keen interest in our products. We certainly find EQUINOX events a valuable marketing tool for our business.

Helena Bubica, Architectural Window Systems

Having exhibited our range of Architectural Solutions for decorative concrete at just a handful of Equinox events so far, the team at AIS continue to impress! For us here at Reid, trade nights like Equinox Perth are evidence enough that we’ve found the right team to help us develop brand awareness in the architectural sector of the construction market. Great venue, great food and friendly people mixing in a relaxed vibe. What better way to get your message across? I’m looking forward to the Equinox juggernaut rolling into Brisbane in April!

John Alberti, Ramsetreid

Equinox created a relaxed and friendly atmosphere with some of the major Architectural Firms in Victoria attending these events. This should be a key sales and specification strategy for any company trying to establish or launch new products into the Australian market.

Shane Jones, Knauf Plasterboard

The response from attendees was better than I have ever experienced before at a trade event.  JD and I (the dynamic duo) were rushed off our feet for virtually the entire event.  Your winning wheel idea was again a big hit.  JD and I took some creative licence with the prize distribution.  We encouraged the winners to negotiate better prizes than shown on the wheel.  We gave away much more product than we normally would, but everyone concerned had a lot of fun and all of the laughing that was going on attracted more people to the stand.  The night ended successfully as Ardex was voted by the attendees as the best stand at the show.

Dave Stephenson, ARDEX New Zealand

I would highly recommend AIS CPD Days to other suppliers that need to connect with Architects on a longer timeframe. Most often appointments are too brief to go over the more detailed information associated with various materials and products. I have found the architects come to these events well prepared to take in the information presented to them.

Belinda Worden, Austaron

As is the case with AIS events, it was well organised and a professional event, and the only hitch on the day was something out of anyone’s control, a major traffic incident.

All that was required of us was to be there and offer a professional presentation – AIS took care of all the other requirements – including the certificates to the participants.

We have found CPD presentations to be an excellent opportunity to show the professionalism and technical expertise of our company and staff, with no need to “promote” our products, to Architects, Interior Designers, Hydraulic Consultants, Quantity Surveyors and Specifiers, most of whom require CPD points.
