Rose’s blog on being effective at trade shows is boosted by PG Live success

A SWISS distribution deal and a Silver Ticket from PG Live are proof that Rose Hill knows exactly what she’s talking about on being effective at trade shows – which is good because the British Library asked her to write a blog on the subject.

Rose is currently taking part in the British Library’s Innovating For Growth programme, part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund, where free business support is on offer.
The founder of Rose Hill Designs has a trademark British pop art style that she applies to greetings cards, stationery, artworks and commissions including dresses and has exhibited at Spring Fair and Top Drawer as well as last week’s PG Live.
“Lots of exciting things happened there,” said Rose, pictured receiving her ticket  at the show from Funky Pigeon buyer Sophie Greenwood, “One is that we had an order from a Swiss distributor so I’m very excited to say that at the end of the year, beginning of next, Rose Hill Designs will be launched there for the new season.
“I was awarded a Silver Ticket  – one of the prizes for winning retailers at the Retas Awards – at PG Live, I was chosen from over 200 exhibitors, I’m delighted to have been picked by Funky Pigeon.”
Rose’s British Library blog covers everything from the cost of a trade show stand – around £2,250 for the smallest 3x1m size – opportunities such as Top Drawer’s Spotted, Launchpad at Pulse and PG Live’s Springboard, preparation, setting up, the show itself and the follow up.
Her final comment on the subject is: “Have fun! This is where you see all the hard work you have put into your products pay off. It’s amazing!"
