We’re all back in the office after our third Truckfest of 2017, this weekend just gone we were in Newark for the Original Truckfest and, as usual, had a fantastic time! We were lucky enough with the weather that we were able to have our big balloon inflated for the first time this year which was visible from all over the site. Despite being nudged around by some light wind, it was a great thing to see and acted as a beacon for anyone wanting a goodie bag, a (much smaller) balloon or to come and talk about SNAP.
We had a fantastic spot for our stand, right next to the main arena, so we got a great view of all of the action that was put on over the weekend. From car crushing action with a monster truck to professional car stunts to the awards ceremony on the Sunday afternoon, we got to see it all!
Truckfests always give us the chance to spread the word about SNAP and how we can benefit individual drivers, larger fleets and truckstops themselves and Newark was no exception. We had a busy stand for most of the weekend with existing customers eager to heap praise on us and other drivers, curious about what we do, keen to come and find out more. This year we had something particularly interesting to chat with drivers about; our new partner app intruck. Even though it was only released recently, many of the drivers we spoke to had already downloaded it and were enjoying it so far, while others hadn’t heard about it but were interested and said they would check it out.
Unfortunately, due to the amount of helium we needed for out huge balloon, we ran out and couldn’t give out any more of the smaller ones, needless to say much more is on order in preparation for next weekend’s Convoy in the Park!
