Business Expo Visitors Win Minster Micro Halloween Treats

It was all things Halloween as delighted ladies from the MFG solicitors’ team drew three of the many winning tickets in Minster Micro’s Halloween competition at the Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce business expo at Malvern’s Three Counties Showground on Thursday 8th October.

Exhibiting with a host of other local businesses from across the two-counties, visitors to Minster Micro’s stand lined up to take turns and see if they had won a sour-tricky treat or a winning ticket for a bewitching Halloween beer, and get their hands on one of their distinctive, orange must-have Minster bags.

Minster’s Head of Marketing, Maria Burdett said: “We decided to run a competition and launch our new eco-friendly cotton bags at the show. Our bright orange bags went down a storm, especially with the recent carrier bag charges brought in this month. We spoke with lots of different businesses across many sectors and industries, so it really helped to break the ice by running our fun Halloween competition giveaway.”

“Well done and congratulations to all our Halloween-treat winners and thank you to every new Minster bag owner who took the time to visit us on our stand.”

Minster @ Made In The Midlands Expo!

With over 1,200 tickets sold and over 125 exhibitors, it’s safe to say that this years’ Made in the Midlands exhibition was one of the most successful for everyone involved.

Minster had a really great day exhibiting as a Gold member for MIM’s 2015 expo and met some fantastic, local and like-minded companies to discuss business with. We found it an excellent opportunity to network with many different businesses and also catch up on the latest trends and news within the manufacturing industry.

As around 60% of our customers are in the manufacturing sector, it was an excellent platform for us to showcase our products and discuss with other exhibitors the challenges that we have helped our clients in the same sector overcome.

At this exhibition we decided to do something a little different for our competition and decided to give-away a money tree. We felt that a money plant would be more fitting at this exhibition than any other as it’s a symbol of both growth and prosperity – something that the manufacturing industry is enjoying in this climate. The draw was made by one of the Made in the Midlands team, Sophie Whittingham.  The lucky business card that was picked out belonged to one of the lovely ladies from the Paycare stand. She was overjoyed to have won and we are confident it has gone to a really great home.

Apart from the fantastic networking opportunity and competition fun, Minster also managed to catch up with some great companies we have met at previous events as well as some of our own customers. Our director, Susan Marlow, also had chance to have a chat with local UKIP MEP James Carver .

Alongside all this, Minster also took the opportunity to talk with many of the local universities and training consultancies about our current recruitment drive and our concerns over the skills gap facing businesses in the Midlands.

All in all the Made in the Midlands exhibition was a fantastic event that we are proud to say we were a part of. We would like to congratulate the MIM team on their efforts in organising a fantastic day. We hope you all had a really successful exhibition as much as we did. Already looking forward to MIM Expo 2016…!

The Expo And The Egg

Exhibition Easter Egg Prize

Exhibition Easter Egg Prize

We have had another CRACKING time at the Hereford and Worcester Chamber of Commerce expo this week.

Once again, it was held at the Three Counties Showground in Malvern on Wednesday 4th March 2015.

The exhibition focused on local companies coming together and using the opportunity to network and offer services to each other. We met so many local, well established companies that are right on our doorstep and also managed to have a catch up with some of our customers who were either exhibiting or visiting the event.

Being a Pegasus Partner, means we can offer the very best advice and support to those who are currently thinking about reviewing their payroll processes, and this time of year is the perfect opportunity to explain what is available within this marketplace, and also provide companies with additional knowledge about Minster and what we do to help businesses flourish – we aren’t just an IT support company, we’re a business partner offering a complete service.

As well as Payroll season, it’s also nearly Easter and what better way to celebrate this than an Easter Egg give-away!
After collecting visitors’ business cards throughout the event, our conclusion was that EVERYONE has a love of chocolate and to ensure transparency (yes – people attempted to bribe us once or twice for the Minster egg!) we picked a friendly, but random, person from the assembled crowd to draw the lucky winner at the end of the show.
Congratulations Kendall Wadley – the lucky winners of our giant Minster (Thornton’s) Easter egg!

We met so many great people and made some new friends and what a fantastic and positive event, one which we were proud to be a part of.

 

Proud To Be A Made In The Midlands Member

untitledMinster are very happy to announce that we are now a member of Made In The Midlands.

As part of our on-going growth, we have taken the decision to join MIM as we feel we are ready to enhance our networking arena and engage with other manufacturing companies within our locale.

We have many customers in the manufacturing industry and feel that we have plenty of knowledge and a wealth of experience in servicing this sector. However, we are always ready to learn more and meet new manufacturers on our doorstep.

We have been keen to be part of Made in the Midlands for a while but as we are not a manufacturing company, we had to go through a process which meant that they had to decide whether we are a suitable and worthy company. After a few meetings we were offered membership and are excited to be joining and taking advantage of this opportunity.

We will be hosting the first Breakfast Meeting of 2015 at our offices and are looking forward to both attending and hosting others. We are also ready to exhibit at the Made in the Midlands Annual Expo in May and will be looking forward to meeting other members and patrons.

H&W Chamber Of Commerce Expo

After the success from the last Chamber expo we attended, we have decided to exhibit there again at the October Business Exhibition.

Held at the spacious Three Counties Showground, there is an expected number of 800 visitors attending (and counting!). We feel this is a great opportunity to meet new people, introduce ourselves to local companies across the region as well as showcase our expanding portfolio of offerings, including SAP Business One, Pegasus Opera 3 and our VOIP telephony product from 3CX.

As this event is held in the month of Halloween, we will also be playing trick or treat so come and say hi (or should we say ‘boo!) at our stand!

Whether you are a current customer or are looking at seeing what Minster and other local companies have to offer, we would love to see you there!

Please note, as this event isn’t held at the Minster offices, there is no need to register your attendance with us. For more information on the exhibition, please contact us.
