Pimento Conference Exhibitor - Popcomms

POPcomms

An interactive studio based in Bristol. They work with B2B advanced engineering and technology businesses who struggle to clearly and simply articulate the value, benefits and opportunities they create for their customers when in face to face meetings with them.

So, they help clients create interactive sales tools that have the customer at the heart of the story and that clearly and visually articulate the value and opportunities they create for their customers.

The interactives are used on large touchscreen displays at events and tradeshows, in customer experience centres and in the field by sales teams on tablets and laptops.

The Number Room

Pimento People

Born on the rising tide of the gig economy. Pimento People saw the growth of the freelance market as an opportunity to build a service which matches self-employed experts in the field of marketing with the changing needs of employers searching for a more flexible talent strategy. They now have a bank of several hundred freelancers in PR, advertising, digital and design ready to take on assignments within agencies or client businesses.

As well as providing freelance talent, Pimento People is pioneering a unique loan scheme which creates a fluid workforce where valuable staff can remain in the agency but have their salaries paid by another for a temporary period. It is an attractive alternative to redundancy and a way of rapidly increasing headcount for those needing to resource a new client or project.
