Confor Woodland Show 2017

Autoguide Equipment and ABC Anchors would like to thank everyone that joined us at the Confor Woodland Show last week. We hope you all enjoyed the show as much as we did; we were definitely glad that there was slightly less rain and mud than the last trade show we attended!

If you saw us at the show, you probably noticed that we are celebrating our 40th anniversary this September! We have been celebrating in a number of ways, including building a special edition Midi Postmaster, as well as handing out some free gifts at the stand. We are happy to report that our gift bags, including a bottle of ‘Ruby’ port were very well received, although some of the staff here are a little disappointed about the lack of leftovers!
