Dell hit us up with an exciting challenge: they wanted to introduce their latest gadgets to the European market. But they knew that doing roadshows in Europe was a whole different ball game compared to the US.
Their goal? To take their entire new lineup of products and accessories right to their clients and distributors, no matter where in Europe they were. Dell wanted a unique experience that would make them stand out from the crowd. And that’s exactly what we delivered.
With the clock ticking and just six weeks until the big launch in Copenhagen, we went all in. We brainstormed, designed, built, and rolled out the Dell Tech Rally Mobile. This roadshow truck is a beast – 8.55 meters long, stretching out to 10 meters with steps. It’s got a roomy 6.2-meter body, stands 3.5 meters tall, and is 2.46 meters wide. It’s hard to miss! Plus, we made sure it’s accessible to everyone, including a wheelchair-friendly lift.
The truck runs on solar power and an onboard generator, making it both eco-friendly and practical. It’s kitted out with a high-speed wireless router and backup for uninterrupted connectivity. But for the best results, we recommend hooking it up to a 2 x 16 amp CE 240 volt, IP44 single-phase connection.
This high-tech wonder was the perfect showcase for Dell’s innovation. It was packed with everything from sleek keyboards to the latest laptops and eye-catching monitors, all displayed in a custom-built, stunning setting.
Over the next 12 months, the Dell Tech Rally Mobile was on the move big time. It visited 18 countries, covered 53,000 kilometers, and nailed 92 appointments – without a single delay or no-show.
We tackled all sorts of logistical challenges like finding secure parking, ensuring on-site power, dealing with road closures, arranging accommodation for our driver, and more. And we made sure to keep everyone in the loop. Since our client was often in a different country, we set up a solid feedback system involving everyone – the client, customers, distributors, and the event organizer. We even had the event organizer send feedback directly to our client in the USA, so we could fix any issues ASAP.
Security was a top priority. We had to protect loads of expensive gear and our team. So, we took these steps:
- Privacy glass on the vehicle – keeping our precious cargo out of sight.
- Satellite tracking, a driver panic button, and real-time alerts for anything unusual.
- GPS tagging for the vehicle keys, just in case.
- A voltage test kit to make sure the event’s power supply wouldn’t fry our electronics.
- Risk assessments for every event venue.
And guess what? Not a single event was missed or delayed. That’s how you do a roadshow, Dell style!
