NTAILS Centre welcomes more visitors

The NTAILS Demonstration has had a busy week welcoming business VIP's and SME's to its demonstration centre based in Telford at the University of Wolverhampton campus. 

On Monday 22 October 2012, the project was pleased to host tours of the centre to patrons of the Black Country Chamber of Commerce.  Visitors were shown around the demonstration centre and were given an update on the progression of the project before a presentation from the Black Country Chamber of Commerce Chair, Paul Bennett.  The event ended with a buffet and networking opportunities. 

The NTAILS project also sponsored the UKITA AGM event which took place in the Telford Conference Centre, at the University of Wolverhampton's Innovation Campus.  The annual general meeting consisted of presentations from key speakers such as BT, Clicking Mad and Outserve Ltd.  The NTAILS and Innovation 1st projects also presented before offering businesses tours of both demonstration centres.  Over 60 businesses attended the event and again feedback was very positive about the innovation and support available to the SME community within the West Midlands region.
