NYNOW 2018 EXHIBITION
Exhibiting at NY NOW was a fabulous experience. Setting up our first individual and independent stand at an international trade show, so far away, is an achievement that I am especially proud of. I met some great buyers and hopefully our products will be stocked by some great US shops soon!
Thank you to every shop and visitor who by our stand and showed an interest. Building up working and successful relationships is a long journey and I hope that we will be there again next year to continue to grow the market.
The Wren Black Paper Backpack was selected for the Sustainability Display and the Natural B6 Notebook Organiser was selected for the Destination: New Display which focused on new-to-the-market products. These displays were situated at the entrance of the halls and created quite a buzz.
You cannot go to New York and not have fun. Five South African companies that I have exhibited with before also exhibited at NYNOW this year and we shared shopping trips, long walks, pizza, tears and frustrations, and a air b’n’b. What an incredible show of the strength of South African female entrepreneurs!
May NYNOW2019 be even better!
