September 2021 Newsletter

What’s happened this month?

In this newsletter, you will get a brief insight into the first events we attended this month (and this year), what DR product we moved over to the outlet shop why, and learn about the upcoming events we are sponsoring in October. 

1. Events Updates

Great news! We recently participated in the first in-person events this year since the pandemic hit over a year and a half ago. 

  BEVA Congress 2021 

BEVA CONGRESS 2021 Birmingham, UK

After a year and a half of events restrictions and cancellations, our colleagues Alex Berends & René van Wijk were happy to meet and greet our friends, associates/sales partners, and of course, see new faces at the BEVA Congress this month.
BEVA brought back the pleasure of social mingling – that human to human interaction, something we have missed very much. The 3-day (5-7 Sept 2021) event was a great success! Although smaller than usual due to the current time, we are still happy to have attended with a booth! Well, except for the 6x covid tests in 4 days for our colleagues! And not to mention costing more than the airline tickets! Crazy times indeed. 

ISELP: Fetlock, Carpus & Metacarpus 2021 

ISELP 2021 Heesch, Netherlands

We also attended this year’s ISELP conference hosted in the Netherlands.
Unfortunately, it was smaller than usual – again, due to the pandemic. However, according to our CEO Alex Berends, who represented us, “The event was exciting, and it was nice to have seen our Podoblock products used in a demonstration session on stage, to meet friends and associates again.” In the past, there was a separate exhibition hall for exhibitors. However, this year, exhibitors shared the same entrance and observed the live on-stage demonstration. Thus, it was a knowledge session also for the exhibitor. And we will be testing Alex’s takeaway knowledge.  

The general conclusion is that people are still happy to get out and socialize again. Although not in the same magnitude, we still believe that events are not yet dead. If we haven’t met with you at these events, we hope to see you at other upcoming exhibitions!  

2. DR-Sleeve in Outlet

At Podoblock, we are constantly evolving, and that means we work on upgrading some products to achieve maximum quality and usability, and others we stop stocking. For instance, we have successfully sold the DR-Sleeve for 10+ years, and now we think it’s time to stop supplying and add the remaining stock to the outlet shop. And taking its place is the new DR-Pouch – a fully upgrade protection pouch for DR flat panels!  With up to a 64% reduction on the original prices on the wireless option and 75% off the wired, you get a brand new sleeve for your DR flat panel detector!  So take advantage and protect your flat x-ray panel!
