Quick thinking saves the day as volcanic ash disrupts crucial travel plans
Creativeworld, Lancashire’s leading design, marketing and new media company is building on recent international success. After winning widespread approval for the exhibition stand they created for Moscow’s Millennium Logistics Park (MLP) for the prestigious 2010 Industrial Parks of Russia Exhibition, Creativeworld is set to begin work on a major new project which will see them completing signage for the extensive MLP.
Very pleased by the positive feedback he has received, Creativeworld MD, Clive Wood says: “Our clients, MLP, were delighted with our work and have said our stand was by far and away the most professional. They were also very impressed by our organisation skills when faced with the unexpected logistics problems created by Iceland’s volcano.”
“When volcanic ash stopped all international air travel on Thursday 15th April, just 7 days before the exhibition was due to open in Moscow, we had to rapidly change our transport arrangements. Quick thinking and resourcefulness were the order of the day. Fortunately we managed to bag the last place on a boat from Hull to Rotterdam on Sunday 18th April. After a grueling road journey of 5,600 km from Hamburg to Moscow via Kaliningrad, where we crossed the border into Russia, we arrived at the exhibition site with just hours to spare!”
Keen to attract international business and industry, 40 Russian industrial and business parks showcased their services at the exhibition which was attended by representatives from 15 regions of Russia.
Clive adds:”Naturally, the exhibition stand and all the materials were in Russian so it was quite a challenge and I’m delighted our team were able to pull it off so successfully. We’re looking forward to the demands of the new signage project and I’m planning an early visit to Moscow to explore other exciting opportunities.”
