A Change of Office Scenery at 36,000ft

As I pack my bags before heading off to the annual Dubai Entertainment Amusement and Leisure Show (DEAL), I do the routine checks – laptop, iPad, iPhone, email boarding pass… check!

It strikes me that when I attended my first exhibition many years ago, I left the house with my trusty Filofax diary, a notepad for taking down the details of important contacts and I may not have spoken to my family until I arrived in Dubai and located a public telephone.

Nowadays, I have the ability to respond to client emails, change the details of an upcoming flight or Facetime when I’m 36,000ft in the air!

I have spoken about the integration of technology in one of my previous blogs, as it’s something we cannot avoid in our modern lifestyles. We rely heavily on the ability to access information in real time, which can cause frustration if we are unable to access as and when required.

With the increase in the use of technology however, we need to be mindful of the impact this is having on our environment and therefore, the integration of Solar Technology to minimise effect should be high on our list of priorities.

At ESF, we thrive on being a forward-thinking and innovative company and as a result, we made the decision to integrate solar technology into our products with the launch of our Stellar Solar bench in November 2017. The Stellar Solar bench provides WiFi and USB charging facilities using solar energy that’s collected and stored in the integrated battery system.

In its short life-span, the Stellar Bench has made quite an impression and was even named Product of the Show at the 2017 Innovate UK exhibition, which has shown us that these innovative measures are definitively paying off.

On our stand at DEAL we will be exhibiting the Stellar Solar Bench, as well as a range of our themed products – all which can be designed to include the latest cutting edge technology. The integration of solar technology is something that we are eager to progress with, in our future development and we are looking forward to seeing the innovative products in the not-too-distant future that will help minimise the negative impact of increasing technology on our environment.

Now, it’s time for one final check before I take flight!


ESF will be exhibiting on stand Z1-D09 at DEAL which takes place from 9th to 11th April at Dubai World Trade Centre.
