The Hard landscaping Show

Trying to access how The Hard Landscaping Show went for us, it's the first time I have exhibited at a two day trade show at some distance from base, although I have exhibited at local three day garden shows and one day trade shows. With all these shows, it is what proceeds it that takes most time and effort. We had two new products we wanted to launch at the show so I had to get them out of the design studio in the head and into a solid form, adjusted, finished and photographed. We had a few quotes for printing a colour catalogue but decided as we keep adding to the range to buy a large capacity colour printer and do it ourselves, (well myself), not as good as a really top quality professional job but a good servicable result that I can adjust for every print run large or small.

The show was quieter than I hoped but I had the opportunity to meet some very nice people from the Landscape Juice Network together with hopefully, some future customers, so all in all a positive experience. The quality of work from Chris Nagle, Helen Nock and Lisa Beard is impressive.

The new products launched at the show have now been added to our website. If anyone wants to use any of our products we offer trade discounts, e-mail me for a price list, if you are very quick say in the next week I will send you a HLS extra discount voucher for your first order.

When the dust has settled in a month or so we will be able to gauge the success of the show, and I will write again.

Thanks to Claudia De Yong and Steve Callaghan for inviting me to exhibit .
Thanks to Philip Voice for his kind comments, help and advice.

    Hi Phil

    No problem. Have a think about the video upload...I reckon it could be a great way of installing a permanent exhibition of your work on the site.
