We had a really great time at the M&CCE Expo last week, meeting old colleagues, current users, potential future collaborators and new customers.
Managing Director Alex Sinclair and Director of Research Dr. Cai Bird spent a productive 2 days at the NEC spreading the good word about Synoptic and radar-based coastal survey and monitoring. Our stand at 4C101 did a great job of drawing people’s attention and attracting visitors, we were also really fortunate to have bagged a stand right next to Keynote Theater 1, which meant that we also go to hear some industry experts talk about leading issues in the coastal maritime industry.
We were shocked at the level of engagement we received from the industry, from policy advisors, engineers, scientists and management authorities, many visitors were visibly excited by the potential benefits offered by a Synoptic system. One coastal engineer in particular had been tasked with the incredibly difficult job of compiling an entire regional coastal strategy, he lamented the lack of up-to-date data in the incredibly dynamic nearshore zone and said that Synoptic would make his job an awful lot easier and save them lots of time and money putting together a detailed monitoring plan.
Cai also really enjoyed talking to enthusiastic audiences at both of his presentations, some really exciting potential projects were discussed, stay tuned to hear more…
