Only two weeks ago we finished up at the excellent Giving and Living Trade Show and now we’re heading out to Birmingham for the Spring Fair. Our entire workforce is very excited for the trade show and are just finishing prepping the new products for the fair today.
We now have over 1000 titles to our name and the production staff have worked tirelessly to make sure we have them all ready for the show. Our creative director and the team have redesigned and revamped a number of our fixtures to give the stand a refreshed feel for what we know will be a very busy Fair. Meanwhile our admin co-ordinators are gearing up for an influx of orders from new customers, to be processed alongside the many that are already coming in for existing contacts who are stocking up for half term! It’s all go go go at the moment 🙂
But this rigmarole is something we are well accustomed to. We have been exhibiting at the Spring Fair for a few years now. In 2014 our Around and About little yellow walking map was placed in the top 3 in the ‘Under 10’ category receiving a highly commended. Quite an accolade seeing as the Spring Fair is the UK’s number one gift and home trade event!
To see Yellow Publications exhibitor page on the Spring Fair website, click here. If you’re visiting the NEC we’ll be in Hall 5, Stand 5BB54, so please come and say hi and experience our maps in person.
Our innovative Yellow Atlas series is also a finalist in the accessories category in the UK Outdoor Industry Awards. All voters will be entered into a prize draw to win one of our fab atlases so please do vote to be entered. You will also have our heartfelt thanks when we win and we will mention you, as a collective, in our speech when we claim our award. Maybe the prospect of a free atlas is better though? (see below)
Thank you very much and you’ll hear from me next week on how we did at the Spring Fair! This is the last of the trade fairs until Harrogate and the OIA conference in March when the Outdoor Industry Awards get announced so vote your socks off!
