This week Maxibit contracted a new partner in Georgia. The company Geoland.
Tbilisi, the Capital is rich in history and architecture
Geoland´s CEO Zviad Beglarishvili discovered Maxibit on a trade show in year 2000.
“Georgian people are decided and patient and always wait to get the best time opportunity! Since I first met with Maxibit I was convinced that when the time will be right, I will import this portable marketing quality to Georgia.” – Zviad explains.

Hardcopy has funkyfied their business and launches this week Maxibit Ireland. Ben is there during the 3-day start-up. The sales process is implemented, CRM, calling manuscripts, Needs Analysis and more. Only the first day 60 large customers was contacted by phone! Dublin based European head-quarters of International corporations. The vibe and energy is just fantastic. I’m sure Pat and his enthusiastic crew will rock things up pretty good on the green Island. Great stuff!
Unloading a 40 footer in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Last week Key Account Manager Jean-Michel and Product Expert Jonas visited our esteemed new Maxibit partners in Riyadh. The company “Must Bee” was founded by Mustafa Hussein 3 years ago and has already one “hive” in Jeddah and one in Riyadh with a total of over 130 portable exhibition professionals. Their slogan is “buzz-making exhibitions”.
The purpose of the visit was to train, educate and kick-start the Maxibit venture on the Arabic peninsula.
Must-Bee signed the Certified Partner contract late autumn 2008 and this was the second visit, just in time for the first delivery, a 40 foot container filled with Maxibit showrooms and enough products for two starting warehouses.
We are proud to be part of this very inspiring team! Hamdullah!
Mustafa! I’m sure you will take the whole Arabic world by (sand)storm, inshallah!
The world economy is going through a phase of major financial crisis. Things taken for granted are questioned. People and companies find themselves in dead-ends and are forced to start walking new paths. Some things will remain the same and some will change forever.
The attendees gave the education an average top rating between “Good” and “Excellent”. The two most appreciated parts of the course was 1) how to practically structure sales activities during a typical sales week and 2) a “game / roll play” where theory turned into practice.
Ben and Jean-Michel was praised for giving a great education. The two days ended with both companies signing Maxibit Certified Partner Contract.
Many thanks to the participating companies, especially Kaj and Risto for sending their sales staff on Maxibit training.
