Update from the show


Evening all!

Just a quick update from me as i’m shattered and hoping to get an early night!

I’m sitting on the side of the bath in my hotel room, with a few inches of hot water in to sooth my achy feet! It’s been a hectic couple of days at the show already to say the least!

For anyone who might not know – Autumn Fair is a trade show that we’re at in the NEC in Birmingham – so its where we get to meet with retailers who carry our products and show them what’s new and preview what’s coming up in the next few months.

Build up day was yesterday and it took us all day! (but then we are predominantly women, and there was lots of ‘faffing on’ for want of a better word making the stand look pretty!) And look pretty it did indeed…!

But setup was lots of fun…

Then today has been exciting! In my role with the CHA-UK this morning I was asked to give a seminar and it was all about demonstration days in store and how to get the most from them. I was ever so nervous about speaking in front of all those people (I know what you’re thinking – surely not me, there’s not a shy nervous bone in my body, but you would be surprised!)

It went really well though…

Then also Leann was doing demonstrations with the new eBosser (which is previewing at the show and due to launch later this year) – she was FAB (as she always is!)

We’re looking forward to another busy day tomorrow – Anthea Turner is presenting 2 seminars for the CHA (and it’s right next to our stand so I’ll get to see all the action!) so I’ll keep you posted (if I don’t get chance to blog then I will tweet regular updates – @SaraDaviesCC )

More to follow soon I promise! Off to finish bathing those sore feet!
