Greetings Today magazine, giving you the bigger picture

A century of cards

Look to industry future with GCA’s 100th anniversary conference and AGM

 

BOOKINGS are now open to help the Greeting Card Association celebrate their centenary at this year’s annual conference and AGM with the theme of Looking To The Future.

The venue is Central Hall Westminster, from 10.15am on October 17, and CEO Amanda Fergusson said: “This location is opposite the House of Commons where, in November 1919, Nancy Astor became the first woman to be able to take the oath and sit in the House of Commons – an appropriate link to our own centenary celebrations.”
The day will be a celebration of the GCA’s 100th anniversary, with lunch and chance to see their 100 years of greetings cards exhibition.
As well as considering the greetings card market, the High Street and the challenges they are facing, entrepreneurial retailer Olly Tress, owner and founder of Oliver Bonas, will be the keynote speaker, with exhibition curator Geoff Sanderson looking into the future of the industry.
With environmental challenges high on the agenda for most publishers, the afternoon will consist of a panel discussion on routes some members have taken to respond, and an opportunity for members to gather information on the wide variety of environmentally-friendly products and packaging options available.
