It’s all in a day’s work!

Added 08 Mar 2016 by GFORCE

When people ask me what the favourite part of my job is, I often find it hard to pick an absolute answer because I am lucky to really enjoy my work and the fact that every day is so different. But if I am pushed on it, I have to admit that one of the best bits is getting out on the road and visiting our clients and potential new customers at the range of conferences we attend every year.

I’ve just come back from Printwear and Promotion Live! which was held at the National Exhibition Centre (NEC) in Birmingham.

Now in its 27th year and with over 5,000 attendees, P&P LIVE! is the only dedicated event for the UK garment decoration industry with the majority of visitors being printers (screen, transfer and digital), embroiderers, promotional product distributors and retailers. With 150 stands, there is a real buzz about the whole event and it was really exciting to be part of it.

As a company we were fully equipped with our latest GFORCE products that we have supplied to sports teams so we could show real life examples that demonstrate the top quality nature of what we provide.

For Grahame Gardner we had a smaller range on show but were also able to give a sneak preview of our newest line which will be launching soon.

But it’s not just about showing up on the day, preparing for a conference of this scale is hard work! It was my job to ensure we were booked at the event and to liaise with the organisers. I also developed the wall graphics and marketing materials which we used at the show itself and made sure we had all the garments on hand that we wanted to showcase. I helped to set up our stand and then was available to talk to people and be the voice of Grahame Gardner and GFORCE.

Looking back, I think it’s the scale of this exhibition that sets it apart, it is one of the biggest we attend which is great for us as it means we can display both Grahame Gardner and GFORCE products in one place.

And the best bit – being able to put my feet up at the end safe in the knowledge that all had gone well. But not for long as it is almost time to get ready for our next road trip!
