We had a fantastic time at this month’s Visualize YOUR World event in London with Qlik.
We also arguably had the best stand at the event thanks to the fantastic Gary Palmer and ForbiddenPlanet.com, who provided an excellent array of displays and giveaways that would excite any sci-fi fan.
From real-life lightsabers to huge Wonder Woman graphics, the collateral from ForbiddenPlanet.com definitely put our stand on the map!
We also had a lightsaber to give away, but not just any lightsaber (as if there is such a thing) but Luke Skywalker’s very own lightsaber… does it get any better than that?
Gary helped attendees understand the power of Qlik and the bespoke service Ometis provides, with compelling examples of how ForbiddenPlanet.com have utilised the platform to revolutionise the way they do business – and as their IT Director, he should know.
There were plenty of questions during Gary’s lunchtime session, although this may have been down to the fact that visitors had to be holding a lightsaber to ask a question… We had everything from serious queries to ‘What’s your favourite colour?’ as people vied for the chance to swing a saber, and who can blame them?
All-in-all, it was an entertaining day packed with data-driven opportunities and was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the work we do, as well as how good we are at doing it (even if I do say so myself!).
Now we’re looking forward to Visualize YOUR World in 2018, we’ve already been thinking hard about how we’re going to top this year’s display but if ForbiddenPlanet.com are involved once again, I’m sure it won’t be too difficult.
