NIR 2013

Aunir were gold sponsors of the recent NIR 2013 event which brought together the world of NIR including academics and commercial application specialists. The event took place in Montpellier, France at the beginning of June and six members of the Aunir team travelled to the event.

As well as a small exhibition stand, Aunir had a slot on the main conference agenda which Commercial Manager Steven Tayfield used to draw people’s attention to Aunir’s partnership capabilities. Being more than just a supplier is the key to Aunir’s new marketing and commercial strategy. We are keen to partner with R&D departments, hardware suppliers, and end users of NIR equipment. Steven also promoted the crossword competition being run by Aunir in conjunction with the event. Entries closed at the end of June.  

On the final evening of the event, Aunir hosted a dinner for key contacts in the industry. Fifty four people attended the informal and relaxed dinner where people were free to reflect on the conference and look forward to the future.  

Aunir Director, Chris Piotrowski commented, “Being a gold sponsor at NIR 2013 has helped to strengthen our relationship with NIR machine manufacturers who we work closely with to deliver our robust and reliable calibrations. The event gave us an opportunity to communicate information about our products and services to current and potential customers, as well as keeping us abreast of the industry topics whilst also looking out for new commercialisation opportunities. We are already thinking about our participation at the next event in 2015 which will take place in Brazil. See you all there!”
