Mark Jones, founder and managing director of Giant iTab, last month met with Greg Hands, the UK government’s MP for Trade & Investment, as the company was asked to represent the international opportunity for UK event technology. At the meeting, the two discussed ways in which the sector’s global excellence can contribute to UK trade and investment.
The meeting followed Hand’s visit to Mobile World Congress, where the MP was first introduced to Giant iTab and gained insight into the expertise and global opportunity UK event tech presents to British growth. Jones and Hands discussed Giant iTab’s own international expansion, and how more UK event technology companies can replicate this. The business has already expanded into the US, Middle East and Australasia, with further ambitions for international growth.
“The product is fantastic, it’s great, intuitive and easy to use for the customer. Since we met at Mobile World Congress I’ve found Giant iTab fascinating,” commented Hands. “The UK has an incredible capability in events, and this is a great example of a company that is enjoying rapid international growth. We’re keen to support them wherever we can.”
“The government has a specific agenda towards increasing UK export, and event technology is an area they are very interested in following #MWC17,” added Jones, Giant iTab. “We’re delighted to be representing the very best of this sector, sharing our own international growth experience, but also looking at how we can work with the government to get even more UK event tech companies doing the same.”
