John and I work across a number of industries and we're often invited along to open days and eagerly attend, expecting to find something new and exciting to discover and report back on. They can involve a long drive and thus lots of valuable time and expensive petrol and sometimes, on the way home, we look at one another and one of us will have to say: "That was a bit of a waste of time, wasn't it?"
However, last week we attended one of a series of distributor open days organised by Karcher - not to the German head office but to Banbury in Oxfordshire, where the training and display centre, The Academy, opened a couple of years back, is based.
There were several new products and prototypes on show and at one point during our guided tour I exclaimed: "Why hasn't anyone thought of that before!" John commented that whenever anyone uses that phrase, it's a mark of something truly innovative. I couldn't agree more!
Unfortunately I can't give you information about that particular product yet, as it's not due for launch for another couple of months - but one that is available now is featured below in this week's news, and there will be several others to read about over the coming weeks.
Hope you're as excited about them as we are...
