Q&A with Alex Wren - Innovation Showcase





Venturefest South West is the region’s single biggest tech knowledge exchange: last year, the event featured the Innovation Showcase, an interactive exhibition of the very latest tech coming out of the region. From 3D printing, AI to drones, the Innovation Showcase offered new technology companies an area to exhibit interesting products and spark conversations about technology and innovation.

Alex Wren and his team from Bitpod exhibited at the Innovation Showcase and he explains how Venturefest South West was an event not to miss within the tech and innovation industry.

What is Bitpod?
Bitpod is a video production and marketing company where we help businesses and organisations to harness the power of online video to achieve their goals. We work with companies to capture what it is that makes them unique. With a background in marketing and web development, we’re always thinking about how video fits into the bigger picture of a marketing strategy.

Why did you exhibit at Venturefest South West?
Video production is constantly evolving as technologies advance and this is something Bitpod is at the forefront of. We wanted to meet local businesses who might have been looking to explore video marketing and discuss how we could help.

How did exhibiting at the event help your business?
It gave us a chance to demonstrate our newly developed automated video booth and of course discuss our other video production and animation offerings. It allowed us to talk to businesses about the power of video technology in their marketing and how to effectively use it within their business.

Approximately, how many conversations about tech and innovation in the South West did you have?
Too many to count but they were frequent and productive. The Innovation Showcase provided us with the opportunity to speak to many regional businesses about Bitpod and technology in the region. There were lots of interesting things to look at and play with, the VR showcase seemed to be very popular with delegates.

Did you find exhibiting at VentureFest South West useful for your business?

Yes, it was interesting to see other innovative products that had been launched but also lead to new business and new contacts.
