12/03/2015: Local & Global
Tom Blacker, International Milling Directory

First published in Milling and Grain, February 2015

It has been a busy time here at the International Milling Directory (IMD).

The team headed over to IPPE in Atlanta USA, taking with us several hundred copies of the Directory. 

Copies were distributed to visitors of our stand, and I am pleased to report that we got some very positive feedback about our latest print edition - as well as some great ideas from readers that we hope can be incorporated into our next edition and website over the coming months. It was great to talk to you! 

It always brings home the global scale of this industry when travelling to events such as IPPE - but something that we consistantly hear from you is, dealing with local companies is just as important in your day to day operations. 

This is a point that we have addressed in the new version of the IMD website. 

If you have visited recently, you will have noticed that we have a world map right there on our home page, complete with icons to show company locations (as well as a search tool). This allows our users to find suppliers in a specific country, and then see exactly where their business is located. 

We hope that this will be a great addition to the site, not only for companies trying to find a local supplier, but also for companies that operate on an international basis and want to find suppliers in a specific country. 

One more thing: if you are from a company that is attending an event, did you know that you can now enter this information onto the IMD website to let your customers know that you are attending?
