Each year we love to hear winners and finalist’s stories and the new adventures that winning the award has helped open the doors too, whether that’s meeting new customers, meeting new suppliers or just raising your profile in the Home and Giftware world. It would be great to hear your success stories along with any images that you would like to share, our aim is to create a newsletter and promotional material to help you shout about your success and spread the news to The Giftware Association Audience as well as build up momentum for next year’s competition.
We would love to have any photos from the awards, any messages of congratulations or stories direct from Spring Fair, from people who found your stand from our display area in the main atrium, or at any other shows you have attended this year.
Whilst we were disappointed not to emulate the successes of Gift of The Year 2017, everyone at Signature was proud to learn that our personalised ‘My Life Memories Journal’ had made it as a finalist in the ‘General Gift’ category. The top prize was not to be ours. Nevertheless, to gain a ‘Highly Commended’ award amongst such fierce competition is no mean feat, and for us it highlights the quality of our product.
The Journal and the beautiful award were granted pride of place the next day at the Spring Fair, positioned centrally on the front bench of our stand. It would be one of the first things visitors would see as they came in to talk to one of our team. This was often a spark for conversation to begin, as people would ask about the book and the award, a great way to introduce potential new customers to our products and explain what we are all about.
We hope the achievements at Gift of The Year continue into 2019’s competition, where we will be looking to take the top prize once again!
