Rubb lands at IDEX

Rubb Managing Director Ian Hindmoor (pictured below right) and Sales Manager Andy Knox gear up for IDEX 2015. Andy returns to the Rubb Blog with all the latest news from the show in Abu Dhabi…

Rubb Stand 06-A38
Setting up – An early start
We checked into the hotel at 4am on Saturday and then we were up and out again at 8am to go and collect our passes and set up ready for the opening day. The stand showcasing our military buildings looked good (Hall 06 – Stand A38). Once we had checked everything over and delivered our brochures to the appropriate parties we were done ready for the show to start.
We could not have picked a better hotel. The Novotel Al Bustan is clean, friendly, comfortable and perfectly located, just a five minute taxi ride to and from the exhibition centre. The plan was simple, gym, food, beer whilst watching the match and then bed (we won’t discuss the match).

Day 1 – Don’t look down!
We arrived at the exhibition nice and early on Sunday to get a pre-show walk around and get our bearings. The morning was a little quiet but the opening ceremony was very entertaining and by the afternoon the familiar buzz of chatter was in the air and the show was starting to gather some speed.
Amongst the delegates there was a stand-out person of interest that had to be approached. James Kingston, professional adventurer from Channel 4’s Don’t Look Down documentary was more than accommodating when approached for a quick business selfie. James (pictured below left with Rubb MD Ian Hindmoor) had been scaling the roof tops of Dubai just the day before – feel free to take a look at his latest daredevil antics at https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ceqxF6AxZzM

Before we knew it the day was done and it was time for a quick shower and turn around for a reception hosted by Ambassador Philip Parham CMG at the British Embassy. As always this was a first class networking event allowing us to spread the Rubb name.

Day 2 – A busy day ahead
A 7am gym session kicked Day 2 off with a bang, followed by breakfast and a taxi to the show. Straight away it was evident that Day 2 was going to be busier than the opening day – the queue for security was nearly out the door and it wasn’t even opening hours.
A quick catch up with emails and the office back home was quickly interrupted by two visits of interest and a familiar face which is always nice, the day was panning out nicely…..
