This is my first solo trade show and luckily for me April Interiors is a super friendly event created and run by a small group of people in the Curtain and Blind Makers Friendly Forum (CABMFF).
It’s a great community and I thoroughly recommend anyone joining if you’re in the trade.
Preparing for a trade show is hard work. Not only do I need to think about the display, I must think about all the paperwork that will be needed on the day.
Once I’ve got all my paperwork together, things like price lists and leaflets I need to consider the display. There’s lots of creative ways to display fabric, but because I’m on my own, I have to keep it fairly simple and light-weight. It also needs to fit in the car!
These photos show how it all came together on the day.
