The France Show, Olympia 2015
We have finally arrived at the Olympia, London after a long but smooth journey by train with all our promotional material and information for the show. (Including a bistro table and two chairs courtesy of Clare!) Our hotel...well to say "to swing a cat!" is an under statement! Although modern, clean and having a terrific shower, comfortable bed....our stand at the show has more leg room!
After finding our way to the right entrance and avoiding the 'Toy Fair'! We were able to set up in our small but functional stand. At first we pasted up all our posters.....only to find we had lost our stand! So we removed some and decided on a more minimalist approach. Our table sat neatly at the back with our brochure stand up front with a nice display of lavender, the doors opened at 10am and with leaflets in one hand and a glass of red in the other we were ready!!!
We received lots of interest throughout the day with several customers looking to making future bookings. After many attempts to log on to the Internet we are now ready to show our website and possibly take payments this weekend. We brought along a bottle of Pierre Amadieu Gigondas 2006 as a prop for our table and it will be opened on celebration of a successful show on Sunday, so if you fancy a glass, then you need to get here quick!
We are situated in good company with like minded people. Apparently, Saturday will be busier.......
Thank you to all of our friends and colleagues who helped us to prepare for this exhibition.
