OK, we have to admit we quite enjoyed the irony of posting the blog ‘Shameless Advertising’ right after a posting complaining about the blatant advertising that UK newspapers expose their users to. Apologies to those of you who look to us for comment, debate and views, but we strongly defend our right to self promotion on this blog 😉 And that leads me swiftly on to ‘Shameless Advertising Part II’ (which at least includes some views and comments on the current economic climate)…
As you can probably tell we have been asked a lot recently for guidance regarding the purchase and implementation of systems and this is all rather pleasing as we see it as a sign that people are finally coming out of their recession-proof bunkers and blinking in the bright sunlight of opportunity and growth. Now I fear that this could be heralding a false dawn and indeed there is still much caution in the World (apart from in certain banking institutions, but don’t start me on that!) as companies are nervous of signs of a recovery tricking them into making a wrong move.
In most quarters it is felt that there is still a long way to go to the full recovery that we are all keen to see. However, the optimistic among us are hopeful that the perceived ‘green shoots of recovery’ don’t get struck down by a sharp killer frost this winter as the recession bites back with a vengeance.
However, under the gentle rays of this possible new dawn it is rather fitting that there should be an exciting new show in London at the beginning of November. MediaPro 09 is all about technological innovation for the world of Pre-media and Tunicca is pretty pleased to be participating with a stand to show our wares. OK, I admit that it is a small stand as we of course have no hardware or software to display. Nonetheless we will be there and I am proud to say that this is the first trade show that Tunicca will exhibit at and marks somewhat of a milestone for the company. We hope that all of you UK based pre-media people will find time to make your way to historical Old Billingsgate for what promises to be a timely and interesting 2 day show.
