As headline sponsor of this year’s ESSA G50+ Conference Toyota Material
Handling UK continue to build relationships with the UK events industry for
the second year.
The Event Supplier and Services Association (ESSA) have been holding their
annual G50+Conference for the past 5 years. It is an event that brings the
event suppliers industry together to promote best practice and share
experience in order to drive improvements.
Toyota’s support of the conference included two workshop presentations on
Toyota’s culture, the Toyota Way and an information area where attendees
could pick up further information about Toyota products and services.
The workshops, delivered by Toyota Material Handling UK Sales and Marketing
Director Tony Wallis, were developed to build on the introduction to the
Toyota Production System, which was presented at last year’s conference and
involved a business simulation game with 12 members of the association.
Tony Wallis, Sales & Marketing Director for Toyota Material Handling UK,
commented; "The ESSA G50+Conference is an excellent opportunity for us to
show how the Toyota Production System can be used in every business. The
simulation game is a fantastic way of getting people involved in the process
and experience the different ways of operating first hand. Through a video
feed at the G50+Conference, the audience get to be part of the experience as
Chris Skeith, ESSA Director, added:
"The G50+Conference gives our industry leaders the opportunity to gather and
share best practice and knowledge, Toyota has become key to the event.
Sharing their knowledge of process and culture helps our members to see new
options for the way they do things and many leave inspired to try some of
the solutions that have been introduced."
The partnership between ESSA and Toyota has developed over the past year to
include the recent announcement of Solutions 2, an ESSA member, as the stand
partner for Toyota’s IMHX 2013 stand design and build.
