4 ways to find the right exhibition company for you.

Posted in Marketing

As with a lot of product research you will be over faced with lists of companies and options that fit in to the search criteria. Whilst exhibition displays are a product you can buy online, it’s also important that you understand what you’re buying and that the company is on hand to give you any details you need so an informed decision can be made.

You may have a supplier in place already or you might be looking for alternatives, along with new quotes and display choices. If you do find yourself looking for a new provider, you need to make sure they are right for you and can offer the displays you desire.

There’s a few ways that you can do your research and ways for you to gain confidence and trust in you display company, we have a list of what to look out for…..

Check out the reviews

Before we part with our well-earned money or marketing budget, it’s best to check that our money is going to the right place. Before getting your heart set on a display, do some digging and check out their customer’s thoughts and ratings.

An easy way to do this is to look at the Trust Pilots and any reviews you can find. Using this method is a great way to get reasonable and accurate feedback so you can see how the products perform and the level of customer service you’ll receive.


Whilst looking at Trust Pilots is part of the research phase, it’s a good idea to take to the internet and see who else can offer the same service with a high-quality product.

Don’t just settle on the first price you receive; you might find doing some shopping around will lead you to a fantastic company who offer both brilliant service as well as the perfect product.

Project proof

Seeing a wide portfolio from a brand is inspirational and shows they can really deliver on the display front. Whether they decide to showcase images on social media or share an in depth case study on the site, both show great promise.

Browsing through a catalogue of projects that have been designed and created by them, gives a clear vision of how they work and the quality you should expect. Seeing previous work will give you confidence in them.

Refer a friend                   

Word of mouth is a strong tool. How many times have you been recommended a place to eat or a tv show to watch? And majority of the time you’ll take the recommendation as it allows you to try something new from a person you know well.

The same principal comes to exhibitions and displays, when a colleague comes to you with fantastic comments about a company, you’d be silly not to check it out.

Legal forms for business in the Netherlands: overview

Posted in Business

In the Netherlands, you need to choose a legal form when you start a business. You cannot operate as an entrepreneur without choosing a legal form. You shall have made a choice at the moment you register at the Dutch trade register of the Chamber of Commerce (Kamer van Koophandel or KVK) Your choice will determine key issues of doing business such as liability and tax regime.

Self-employed or freelancer?

If you want to work as a self-employed person or freelancer, you will have to choose if you wish to work from within a legal form or not. You will still have to choose before you can register at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce. Most entrepreneurs act as sole proprietors or have a private limited liability company (a BV).

Which form suits your business?

There are several business structures to choose from, as listed here below. Which one suits you best will depend on your circumstances. There are business forms with and without corporate (legal) personality.

Business structures without corporate (legal) personality are:

–          Sole proprietor or sole trader (in Dutch eenmanszaak);

–          General partnership (in Dutch VOF or vennootschap onder firma);

–          Professional partnership (in Dutch maatschap);

–          Limited partnership (in Dutch CV or commanditaire vennootschap).

Legal structures with corporate (legal) personality are:

–          Private limited liability company (in Dutch BV or besloten vennootschap)

–          Public company limited by shares (in Dutch NV or naamloze vennootschap)

–          Cooperative (in Dutch coöperatie)

–          Association (in Dutch vereniging)

–          Foundation (in Dutch stichting)

When you set up a business form with legal personality, a civil law notary has to draw up the relevant company formation documents, including your registration at the Dutch Chamber of Commerce (KVK). If you choose a business form without legal personality, you will be personally liable for the debt of your business, with your private assets. This is most often not the case when using a business form with legal personality.

If your business consists of a legal entity or partnership, it will be granted a RSIN number when it will be registered at the Dutch trade register. This is fiscal number of the entity.

Filing financial statements

Certain types of business forms are required to file their financial statements with the Dutch trade register. The size of the company determines how much information shall be made public. submitted. It can be wise to have a Netherlands accountant assess the size of your company before set up. In case there will be consolidation or audit requirements, you can check if any exemption could be applied.

European legal forms

European legal forms offer enable your business to work together across borders with companies from other jurisdiction within the European Union. There are three European legal forms:

–          European Economic Interest Grouping (EEIG);

–          Societas Europaea (SE, European public limited liability company);

–          European cooperative company (ECC).

Changes in the business form

Changing from one business form to another is sometimes legally allowed. Sole proprietors often convert their sole proprietorships into limited liability companies when the turnover is growing and as a consequence, liabilities also increase. A conversion will have fiscal and administrative consequences. Changes must be reported to the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration (Belastingdienst) and the Dutch trade register. You might have to re-apply for certain licences from your municipality. Sometimes it is easier to simply liquidate the old business form and then start doing business in the new business form instead of a conversion whereby the old business is continued.

Assistance with choosing a business form

There are quite a few considerations to be taken into account when making the choice for a business form. Even a structure consisting of more than one legal entity, such as an operational BV with on top a holding BV, could be the best option. Most commonly used business forms are the sole proprietorship (ZZP) and the private limited liability company (BV). It is even possible to apply a legal form from outside the Netherlands for your Dutch business. Though please note that this often make that banks will be hesitant to open bank accounts.

Intelligent solutions for heat recovery from exhaust gas

Posted in Energy

For the energy to be available even when there is no or only little waste heat due to exhaust gases, heat recovery works most effectively in a network. With a combination of smoke flow heat exchangers and heat recovery from exhaust gas, which caches its extracted energy in a buffer, the full heat output is always available. For example, manufacturing processes can be reliably supported, or the room climate can be maintained at a uniform level.

There is a lot of interest in waste heat recovery all over Europe. In Germany for instance, heat recovery (or – “Abwärmenutzung” – as it is called in German, has great potential and many different companies are looking towards installing waste heat recovery systems.

With today’s technology, but also the exact opposite can be achieved. Air coolers pass on the recovered heat to a cooling medium. This then operates the air conditioning and thus ensure, for example, in the summer, pleasant temperatures in the premises and without any additional primary energy consumption.

Solutions from exodraft can reduce the need for expensive primary energy of your company by up to 16%. Especially in sectors with high energy requirements, enormous savings can be made.

How the heat recovery from exhaust gas works

An exhaust gas heat exchanger reduces the temperatures in the exhaust gas flow. The resulting energy can be reused almost lossless with high efficiency. The possibilities are not limited only to the use for the heating or the heating of the utility water.

Also, manufacturing processes that require a high temperature can be supported. In many cases, the thermal energy is high enough to replace existing complex heating systems. In general, an exhaust gas heat exchanger can be used for all conceivable exhaust gases. So, it does not matter if oil, gas, or an open fire is burned.

Depending on the degree of contamination of the existing exhaust gas, exodraft offers various solutions that can achieve high efficiency even with coarse impurities in the material flow.

A well-thought-out design with service openings allows easy and effective cleaning. Should a complete shutdown of the system be undesirable, there is also a solution for this. It can be installed quickly and easily a replacement cartridge with a few simple steps.

High temperature differences thanks to high quality materials

Exhaust gas heat recovery is most effective when there is a high temperature difference. State-of-the-art materials in conjunction with high-tech coatings allow for enormous thermal energies.


For example, the exhaust gases of gas turbines can be converted with a very high efficiency. exodraft offers individual solutions with a long service life.


No matter where and how you want to use waste heat for power generation, special solutions from exodraft, tailored to individual requirements, always offer the highest level of efficiency with minimum maintenance intensity.

Due to the variety of materials and designs, the various designs of heat exchangers are available. Examples are lamellar, smooth tube, or finned tube heat exchangers. Classical are air heaters – the most used design. They serve to heat air or other gases for later use, for example for the room air.


Waste heat recovery from exhaust gas in practice

Due to steadily rising energy prices and increasingly stringent emissions regulations, energy recovery from modern companies has become indispensable.

Saving the required primary energy by up to 16% makes your company more resistant to unexpected price fluctuations in the energy market and also significantly reduces CO² emissions. The elimination of heaters for their own manufacturing processes can save additional costs directly.

Experience has shown that with an intelligent solution from exodraft, the return on investment, ie the point from which the system automatically wears, is reached after only 2 years. Thanks to the low-maintenance heat exchangers, energy savings can be expected long after this point.

In addition, the technology also saves emissions because the exhaust gases can be cleaned to some degree. The condensate can usually be discharged unfiltered as wastewater. This is good for the environment and saves extra money in energy-intensive production processes.

Nowadays there are hardly any restrictions when it comes to the heat recovery from exhaust gases. There are already universal solutions for many areas and areas of application. We’ll make sure you get the most appropriate technology for your business and your use. We will agree with you which equipment is necessary in your situation in order to produce the maximum heat recovery.

To ensure that exodraft flue gas heat exchangers can meet even the most difficult requirements in the long term, they are manufactured using the best materials for the right purpose.


How to drain a basement

Posted in Home and Garden

It happens to the best of us. Heavy rainfall was expected to come, you thought nothing of it, you checked your basement and the whole thing was absolutely flooded. What now? Do you salvage your possessions first? Do you just drain the water first? How do you even do that? 


First of all, make sure exterior floodwater has dissipated. With exterior floodwater present, it’s not yet possible to drain the basement, as it’ll fill right up again. 


Then, once the floodwater is gone, it’s time to acquire a dab water pump, or any other kind of pump capable of removing this body of water. Make sure that the pump is waterproof. To use the pump, you’ll also need a generator and an extension cord that won’t break down once submerged in water. If the water runs very deep, it’s worth considering getting a sturdy rope to attach your water pump to and lowering the pump into the water. Attach the pump to a hose of some sorts and make sure that the pump’s connection to the water is not near water. Also make sure the hose points in a direction that has a gutter or a storm sewer as to not cause another flood. 


Once this is done, it’s time to position the pump correctly. Try to lower it as far as possible.


Once the actual pumping is done, it’s time to evaluate the damage that has been done. Water damage is nothing to scoff at. It might be worth getting everything in your basement checked, as leaving your basement unchecked might lead to fungi, algae and mold growing literally everywhere. No carpentry is safe, no drywall is safe, anything slightly porous within a few inches of anything that might be biodegradable is a heaven for mold and the like. Also check with any local health department about the mold risk, as mold carries many safety hazards with it.

B. Weaknesses
– Doesn’t actually have any real weaknesses in his game.

Quality Squash Stores has helped make this article about squash possible. Their squash webshop is www.qss-squash.com.

– Every player sometimes has a hard time in certain situations, including the complete player.
– Try to get them in these situations
– Play from your own strengths
– Keep looking and anticipating
– Attack with confidence
– Keep shots deep and well along the wall
– Vary the speed
– Try to find a weaker point…

D.What definitely “don’t” do
– Waiting too long for your opponent to use his strengths even more
– Don’t be tempted to go too fast for winner either
– Show no frustration
– Going along at his pace

The “complete player” is very difficult to play. For coaches, we all want to train our young talents in this mode, but in the long run, that’s not the case.

The beauty with which these players approach the game is delightful. It’s also great that they can play against any type of opponent, they can easily absorb other styles of play and because of their technical ability they can execute all tactical plans to perfection.

At the World Championships for women’s teams, which took place earlier this month in Nîmes (France), it was again clear that the use of your own strengths can take you very far in a match. Sometimes it’s just not possible to exploit your opponent’s weaknesses, because you just don’t have the technique and style to play that kind of game yourself. My advice at that moment is to focus on your own strong qualities and use them as perfectly as possible. Playing a game that doesn’t suit you at all isn’t going to help you much either.

The style of play I want to develop this time is that of the Runner.

A. Features
– Is very fast and also moves very well over the entire track.
– Has an enormous stamina, is fit
– Forces his opponent to make mistakes by continuing to pick up everything
– Seduces players to play risky shots
– Is used to playing long games, is even a kick for this kind of player

B. Weaknesses
– Technically usually not very good
– Tactically not brilliant

– Be patient and really play out the points
– Make a minimum of 4 shots to the back of the court.
– Find the volley
– Be ‘deceptive’
– Use your boast and drop in a ‘calculated’ way
– Minimize angles by keeping the ball tight.

D.What certainly do NOT do
– Don’t be tempted to hit ‘winners’ too quickly.
– Don’t be discouraged when your opponent picks up ‘normal winners’.
– Don’t play shots you don’t feel comfortable with
– Play within yourself, keep focus on your own game

The runner is a difficult player to play against. The rallies are long, the runner does relatively little with the ball and gets the most out of all his opponents. Are you the runner?

Dye your shoes

Posted in Beauty and Personal Care

Everyone wants some new shoes once in a whileThe problem is that you probably already have a lot of shoes standing in your closet and it would be a shame to just throw them all away. You can donate them, but you would have to buy some new ones. Shoes are pretty expensive so looking for an alternative would be better. There is something you can do to get new shoes without actually buying new shoes. In this article, you will read how to get your shoes to a whole new level. 

Acrylic leather paint is a great way to make your shoes look as new. Painting your shoes will make them look like a whole new pair. There are plenty of colors to choose from. You do have to make sure you apply the paint the right way. There are a few steps you have to follow to make sure the leather will take the paint. Before you even paint anything, you have to make sure the shoes are as clean as possible. You will do this using a degreaser. After that you will have to decide what kind of paint you are going to use for your shoes. Finding out what kind of leather your shoes are, is an important step in this process. If your shoes are suede, you will have to use suede dye. Dying suede won’t work any different in preparation. After you prepped the shoes, it’s time to paint. You are going to want to tape down some of the edges where you don’t want any paint. Once it’s there, it’s there. Paint the shoes in thin layers and let these layers dry completely in between painting.  

A different, easier thing to do is buy some new shoe laces in a funky color.
