I am exhibiting at Spring Fair at the NEC in Birmingham this week. Creature Clothes haven't exhibited here for at least 8 - 10 years so it's very exciting to be back.
We will be at Spring Fair (a trade only show) until Thursday 7th Feb.
Here is my camera phone diary of set up...
|Our very basic, very tiny space in the Design Lab.|
Stage 1 - picket fence is in place!
|my trade show box of tricks...|
|mountains of samples to squeeze into our space|
|"Our" issue of Vanity Fair... the highlight of our 2012 media coverage|
|The electrics go in...|
|The Easy Dogs get bandana'd up with our new Slip on Bandana designs|
|I always start with the central focal point of the stand - for this show it was the top shelf, Vanity Fair and new product|
|The Easy Dogs get tethered to the fence by their lovely stripey fabric leads|
|Our new Slip on Bandana packaging gets pride of place at the front of the stand alongside Emergency Treats Pouch & Valentines Key Tags|
|Bone Babies and Fur Friend Fleecy Blankets go in (top tip for a show: classic Oscar The Grouch style trash can or drums with lids make a great display plinth and are essential for storing coats in!)|
