READING, UK – 21st September 2015 – Intermedia, a one-stop shop for cloud IT services, announced today that it will be a headline sponsor at The Business Show 2015 – Europe’s biggest business event designed for business owners and entrepreneurs looking to start, grow, or improve their business.
Intermedia was approached because of its product and services. Its Office in the Cloud™ suite integrates all of the essential IT services that SMBs need to do business, and Intermedia provides support to its customers with infectious enthusiasm. Intermedia is a small business itself, with a huge entrepreneurial spirit and a strong history of supporting the IT needs of other small businesses – this makes the company a perfect match for the event.
Tom Borthen, Marketing Director for Prysm Group and the event’s creator, added: “We’re lucky to have Intermedia on board because of its clear leadership in the technology space for SMBs. One of the biggest challenges business visitors voice is the constant worry around their IT. Often, IT struggles within SMBs hinder people from working on their core business, which can impede company growth. Excessive time spent figuring out and managing IT issues is a key problem. This is especially a concern for SMBs, who typically have less internal IT capabilities than enterprise businesses. Because of that, SMBs have to carefully juggle their investments wisely, balancing investment in staff with investment in technology infrastructure. From what we’ve seen, Intermedia has a stellar track record in supporting SMBs and amazing products and services that are perfect for SMBs. We’re delighted that Intermedia is on board as a headline sponsor for The Business Show.”
The Show is divided into three sections, (1) Business StartUp; (2) The Business Show; and (3) Going Global, to represent the different stages that SMBs are at in their growth of the company. Intermedia is an SMB that has experienced each of these growth phases. Office in the Cloud can help SMBs during each of these stages, whilst providing a Worry-Free Experience™ to help business owners achieve their business dreams.
Jarmila Yu, International Marketing Director at Intermedia comments: “The Business Show and Intermedia certainly seem to be a perfect match. It’s great that there’s an event where SMBs can all come together for two days under one roof to find all the expertise, guidance and solutions they need to support every stage of their business in pretty much every area of their business. On a daily basis, we support business owners in SMBs as they move their offices to the cloud. By utilising Intermedia’s expertise, SMBs can focus on their core business needs instead of managing their IT issues. SMBs are hugely valuable to the UK economy. If Intermedia can positively contribute to getting more start-ups up and running quicker, SMBs can grow faster, and that will be a huge benefit to the UK economy.’’
Yu adds: ‘‘The Intermedia team is really looking forward to connecting with the show’s visitors. Whether it’s sharing our executives experiences of building successful businesses and using technology as an enabler for business growth in our keynote session, demonstrating the benefits of our Office in the Cloud suite in our seminars, or listening to the exciting visions and dreams of business owners at our stand. We look forward to helping SMBs discover how the cloud can contribute to the growth of their business.’’
At the Show, Intermedia can be found at Stand 550 – a centrally located and open plan stand towards the front of the show floor so visitors can easily find the Intermedia team and network with them freely. Additionally, visitors can enter into an Intermedia competition to win a trip to see the Northern Lights.
