As you may have seen on our Instagram, we were busy last week at The Big Christmas Press Show! Members of the media came from all corners of the country to see IRL our brand-new, all-exciting Christmas gifts for 2021 (that will be coming to a desk near you very, very soon…eeek)! We wanted to give you an exclusive behind the scenes of what we got up to, a little on what we featured over the two-day event as well as show you our stand!
Our aim was to make our stand warm, inviting, and unmistakably us! We drew inspiration from our advent calendar for the design of the stand, using bespoke vinyls from the brilliant Nutmeg Wall Art to bring it to life. With blush pink walls (how could we not?!), white and gold shelving to complement our products, and the most lust-worthy scalloped velvet chair, our stand felt like a little corner of stationery heaven.
It’s crazy to think it’s been almost two years since we’ve attended an event due to the pandemic so it came as no surprise that the team had been super excited for The Big Christmas Press Show…an actual, real-life event! And it really was so wonderful to be back in action. Edlyl, our PR & Events Manager and Christie, our Marketing Manager did a brilliant job on the stand meeting journalists, influencers and press to talk them through our range of personalised stationery that make the perfect Christmas gifts for 2021.
They both spent the two days chatting through some of our new collection to the press and influencers to put Martha Brook on their radar with the hope they’ll feature one of our products in their guides for Christmas gifts for 2021. Some products we focused on in particular included our vegan leather collection which is expanding just in time for Christmas and this year’s much anticipated Personalised 24 days of Stationery Advent Calendar…
It’s so good it even had its own dedicated stand! We had the box opened up with the lid popped on top so you can see the 24 days displayed in what has been designed to look like a beautiful row of books on a shelf – so aesthetically pleasing! In front, we also let in on a sneak peek at what you might expect to find in this year’s stationery advent calendar too…
What did you think of our stand this year? We can’t wait to be able to host our own events next year and even…dare we say it…hold another Stationery Social?! Only time will tell! What events would you like us to put on? Let us know in the comments below.
P.S. Our 24 Days of Stationery goes on sale on Thursday 23rd September at 5pm, make sure you’ve subscribed to our newsletter to get early access and that all-important link directly in your inbox!
