Through the presentation of a varied showcase, TGA Mobility has achieved a significant level of networking and trade enquiries from selective TGA retailers at the first Trade Days exhibition (NEC, Hall 18, 5-6th October, Stand E10).
The TGA team presented several features to retailers at Trade Days that included a new product launch, a discount-related table football competition and two informative seminars. The complete portfolio of TGA scooters were also available to test and trial along with the new 32st capacity wheelchair Powerpack and the TGA puncture sealant.
The TGA team welcomed key TGA retailers onto stand E10 to demonstrate the new Minimo Plus scooter which was unveiled at Trade Days and now offers a foldable model with enhanced drivability. Based on the best-selling, lightweight Minimo, the Plus version still retains a compact chassis but incorporates advanced features that are normally only associated with larger, mid-range scooters. The 4mph Minimo Plus incorporates larger pneumatic tyres, more powerful controller, integrated light, higher ground clearance and enhanced ultra-lightweight batteries. It also provides a higher rider weight capacity than the standard Minimo so users weighing up to 115kg (250lbs) can be accommodated. This next generation car boot scooter produced significant interest from retailers along with the larger 8mph Maximo which will also be available soon.
Tim Ross, TGA National Sales Manager commented: “Considering this is a launch event, the TGA trade team and I have been pleased with the interest and business generated at Trade Days. The table football competition added a fun atmosphere to the stand and several TGA retailers won enough games to achieve impressive discounts on our scooter range. Interest in the new Minimo Plus and forthcoming larger Maximo was high as our pioneering concept in car boot scooters continues to evolve. Overall the show had a relaxed atmosphere, with a more selective number of attendees, so our Area Sales Managers were able to spend time discussing business more thoroughly. The knowledge that you were only talking to trade people at the show was excellent in terms of faster qualification and the ability to pitch your angle correctly. We leave Trade Days with the knowledge that TGA retailers are up to speed with all our developments and have a better understanding of the unique trade support we offer.”
