In July this year Dean and Graham took the opportunity to attend AWFS in Las Vegas. Given that it was the first trip to the US for Dean and Graham, Steve Cugley thought it would be wise to make a last minute trip across the Pacific to ensure Las Vegas was ready for them!
Whilst there were fewer exhibitors than in previous years, given the impact of the global financial crisis on the US economy, it was still great to see everyone got in the Las Vegas vibe and enjoyed a much earned break.
With business owners and their key staff researching the latest and greatest the show reflected a good turn out.
The Planit Stand was well attended with a mixture of long time customers attending to keep up to date with the latest software developments, along with new customers taking up the specials on offer to become part of the ‘Planit Family’.
The Planit Theater was a very popular section of the stand, during the course of each day there were scheduled demonstrations: Screen to Machine, Cabinet Vision Version 5, Alphacam and Part modeler, all sessions were well received with many customers watching from the aisles, as there simply weren’t enough seats. Machine Company Onsrud, also had a small NC Flatbed on the stand this attracted much interest from passers-by as it routed out Planit gaming chips.
In keeping with the ‘Vegas’ theme anyone purchasing from Planit at the show had the opportunity to ‘Roll the Dice’ to see how much discount they would get on their purchase.
Being the first time to Las Vegas for Dean, Graham and Steve it was certainly an eye opener with every night spent visiting a different Casino along ‘The Strip’. Everyone had a great time!
