2016 GRAPHIQUE TRADE SHOW RECAP!
Details From Our Travels to NYC, Las Vegas, Atlanta & More
Another amazing year of trade show seasons has passed and we’re recapping great additions and sharing thanks to everyone involved who made each show a tremendous success!
Check-Out Some Top Highlights From The Season Below:
A Show-Stopping Kick-Off to the 2016 Trade Show Season Starts in Our 2nd Home, NYC!!
Our trade show season began in our second home, New York City. As we make our way to this bustling cosmopolitain city three times a year we never lose the excitement of showcasing our brand and collections with warm welcomes from familiar faces and exciting new additions happening all around within the industry.
More big highlights earlier this year came working together with our North East sales group, Kris & Co. who are partnering together with us to bring beautiful products throughout the NE region! Welcoming three wonderful ladies to our sales team, Julie Higgins, Lisa Fenlon, and Shari Berman we’re stronger than ever before with the industry experience and best-selling collections to put our customers ahead of the competition.
Summer Season was an Exciting Time for Us from NSS, NYNOW, Atlanta & More!
For many years Graphique has attended NSS, the National Stationery Show event that brings together the top brands in the industry and passionate stationery lovers from across the US and beyond. With our much anticipated new Tumblers & Zip Pouch releases debuted at our NSS showcase, we brought back all the feedback and industry news from the event to shape bigger and better plans for the 2017 season ahead. With a first look at how we’re evolving the brand, we made a splash this summer season to showcase new lifestyle collections we’re bringing to the enhance and balance out our stationery and gift line.
Another highlight of the summer season came when we made our way to the popular AmericasMart event in Atlanta. Unlike previous years of absence from the trade show, we are happy to say that we have teamed up with sales group 225 Unlimited Inc. to help bring our beautiful products to the South East territory and to this Atlanta showcase. With support from the 225 group, we are excited to start another great partnership with a group of talented sales people who share our vision of bringing modern class and trending collections to the industry with beautiful products for all.
Attending more summer shows including the Dallas Market and our second NYNOW showcase of the season in August; we rounded out the year with a first look at how we’re expanding our brand and product offerings introducing our first ever spring seasonal greeting card collection!
The Summer Season Kicked Things Into Motion to Increase Our Presence Throughout the US
This year we worked to make the Graphique sales group the best team we’ve had to date! Working with our existing sales groups we have made tremendous changes and additions to equip our industry experts with the resources and tools they need to maximize customer success! Teaming up with another experienced group in the industry was in the cards this year as we rekindled our partnership with sales group Al Hattendorf and Associates. It’s no wonder this partnership is helping us build new relations and presence throughout the Mid-Atlantic region; with their long-standing knowledge of our brand and the industry, this hardworking sales team is helping us reach new and passionate retailers eager to carry our line.
Continuing our travels we flew out to the west coast for the LA Mart in California where we took up residence in our superstar sales team, Sales Producers’, showroom. Here we debuted our newest line up of tumblers, zip pouches, and handmade cards. Our Sales Producers team is an essential part of our growth and we look forward to what’s to come in the future with them.
Look out for us in their brand new Las Vegas showroom coming January 2017!
The Graphique Sales Team Hits the Road to Meet with Our Incredible Customers & Reps!
As our sales team travelled from coast to coast this year meeting with our incredible sales teams and customers we had great opportunities showcasing new additions to our line and presenting how we’re bringing new offerings to make the Graphique brand a leader in the industry.
The feedback we received throughout the year has been overwhelmingly positive with eagerness to see what more we have in store coming soon in the 2017 collection. With the strongest sales team we’ve had to date and some of our best received additions to our line, we are closing out the year with great success and looking forward to 2017 to bring even more beauty and inspiration to all! The momentum is still going strong and next year is sure to exceed this year’s accomplishments.
