⭐⭐Events and shows⭐⭐
We've always tried to do every trade show we can, monetarily the big guy trade shows in London are expensive for a small biz like us, but they are necessary and that's where we get a lot of our wholesale business and get to meet our fab stockists. So it's win win. Also, because our main focus was also distribution it made sense. Consumer shows were just not on our radar, and rightly so, we were a distributor.
As our business has changed to purely us as a brand, so has part of our focus. Not only will we be attending as many trade shows as we can next year, we will also be pouring our efforts into consumer shows. Large London lads and smaller, more local lovelies as well.
The difference? a trade show is where we sell to 'trade' stockists and retailers ie bricks and mortar stores as well as websites and a consumer show is where we speak to the consumer, you, directly. Where you can hear about our products, buy them and talk to us about the biz, it's future and to chat about anything and everything from Organic to dental to vegan and sustainable.
Consumer shows are new to me, but, going by my first toe dip at a local Eco Fair a few weeks ago, I'm going to love them!
So, myself and possibly Katie or Kate will be pitching up with our sparkly table cloth at a show near you!
I've even managed to put a few in before Christmas. Local and small but I'm excited!
