easi Solutions World Travel Market 2000 Follow-Up

 easi Solutions plc gave journalists plenty to talk about during WTM 2000 by sponsoring the press working area, in the most successful sponsorship WTM have seen in their 21 years. Jane Larcombe, one of the organisers of the event, said: "It was the most successful, best equipped press centre we have ever had at the event. This was proven from the sheer volume of filed copy by journalists about WTM and its exhibitors throughout the four days."

easi Solutions provided and installed 10 e@si DesktopsTM and one e@si PowerdeskTM, giving the media unlimited access to the Internet through a high speed link. They could check their e-mails as well as print and file copy, on the completely private and secure e@si SystemsTM. The highly successful event for easi Solutions was rounded off with more than 30 individual media briefings on-site, with another 18 journalists attending its press conference.

Direct feedback from the media, from the event, speaks for itself. Here's what they had to say...

Ellen Sarbone, International Photojournalist and Editor of eTraveller Magazine at eTraveller.com commented of the e@si SystemTM: "It is great to know that eventually I won't have to drag my laptop with me around the world. What a boon for business travellers!"
