The team at P&B provided the conference delegates with a packed agenda, which kicked off with a tour of the company’s production facilities. The agents were able to meet with P&B’s dedicated team of technology designers and engineers and gain a valuable insight into its impressive design process, which promotes continual design improvement.

By seeing where P&B’s latest generation of relay software is manufactured, the delegates could experience first hand the high standard of production quality that P&B are able to achieve.

Presentations were made to provide the agents with updates on the latest technical features of P&B’s new and retrofit relay ranges, including its latest Vision Control and Relay Communication systems.

A number of interactive sessions were a valuable addition to the agenda, which allowed agents to share information about their local markets to help build a broader understanding of changing customer requirements. By sharing various case studies, a number of the delegates were able to illustrate their experiences of different project successes.

The event was held in P&B’s brand new Customer Training Suite – a smart and comfortable 56m2 space specifically designed to welcome visitors and showcase the company’s product range and capabilities.
