We didn’t want to create just another product stand, but build a communication and solution stand. There was not a single presenter, but each and every product could be tried out. The visitors were integrated and motivated to stop. The total project coordination, planning and realization was in our hands, explains Oliver Golz, EAST END Managing Director & Founder. „Western Digital had many visitors to the stand and very good feedback.
