Recruitment Agency Expo Virtual 2020 roundup

Recruitment Agency Expo Virtual roundup

Codapay exhibited at the first virtual Recruitment Agency Expo during 7-8 October. Our commercial team brought Codapay’s payroll solutions to an audience of recruitment agencies, umbrella companies, and payroll specialists.

Carry on reading to find out how we got on and our key takeaways from the event.


The team

Codapay’s virtual stand allowed attendees to book a demo during the event, speak live with the team, and browse our brochures. Here’s what Tom Soper, Sales and Marketing Director, thought about the expo:

“I’ve attended the Recruitment Agency Expo previously, however the prospect of a virtual event was something completely new to us. We all found it useful in getting our product high visibility within the industry and having the opportunity to network. It was a refreshing change, especially given the circumstances of 2020.

“It was great to speak with people in the industry and hear their feedback on how Codapay for Umbrellas could help their business. We ran plenty of meetings throughout the event to showcase all the benefits of our solution and took away a lot of insight from the sessions.”
