EarthSense at AQE 2018 | A Snapshot

Updated: Jul 24, 2019

We spent the 21st and 22nd of November exhibiting at the Air Quality and Emissions Show 2018.

Both days had a high footfall and gave us the chance to meet with many clean air enthusiasts in the sector.

We were overwhelmed with the positive feedback about our products, team and services. A HUGE thank you to everyone who visited the EarthSense stand at the Telford International Centre.

A fresh new look with lots of engagement!

We invested in the show with a new look and feel and there was a strong representation of the brand which the team were extremely proud of.

Managing Director Tom Hall and Technical Director Prof Roland Leigh were on hand throughout the day to speak to visitors – many of whom were word-of-mouth referrals from happy clients or had heard of us through news and social media.  

Roland gave a very well-attended workshop entitled, “The novel technology behind a new national monitoring capability” . Attendees were given an exclusive insight into our latest innovations, case studies and sample data which ended with a lively Q&A session.

We are always enthusiastic about speaking to people as passionate about air quality as we are, and as ever there were some interesting discussion points raised.

Visitors came to our stand wanting to learn more about how we monitor Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs) and how our approach could be applied on a larger scale to help reduce city-wide pollution.

The Zephyr® rises in popularity as a small form sensor

The Zephyr® sensor was undoubtedly the highlight for us at AQE . The sleek, compact and discreet black unit was well received by visitors who were complementary of its size, style and calibre.

Visitors were impressed with the fact that they could see a Zephyr® sensor in-situ, taking live air quality measurements just outside the exhibition centre. Set-up was simple and straight forward, which proved to be an attractive feature.

The data was seamlessly streamed back to a tablet in the exhibition hall, via a bespoke dashboard - a process that is completely automated and reinforced how easy it is to deploy a unit.

We were inundated with requests to demo the Zephyr® - and potential clients were quickly won over by the cost-effectiveness, mobility and accuracy of the unit.

MappAir® – an innovation in national modelling capabilities

MappAir® has established its place in the world of air quality modelling. Visitors were curious to look at MappAir® data and lots of great questions were asked about data sources, reliability, compatibility with smart systems and usability.

It was fantastic to see that visitors at AQE 2018 were familiar with the product even before approaching our stand. Most people had heard about MappAir® through our extensive social media campaigning and really enjoyed learning about the latest product developments.

Councils and corporate companies who visited our stand appreciated that MappAir® addresses a gap in available air pollution data for the UK. Without such products and services the air pollution in areas lacking monitors simply can’t be visualised.

For this reason, MappAir® data could give people a more affordable option, especially for projects that are community or individually funded.

We were delighted with the reception of both the Zephyr® and MappAir® products

and excited for future opportunities and collaborations.

Don’t worry if you missed our stand at this year’s AQE 2018, you can still get in touch with our air quality experts and find out more about the Zephyr® sensor by contacting or calling 0116 296 7460.
