Dear Exhibitor June 2012
Last week the weather caused everyone difficulties, we would like to thank our managers who had the experience to bring everyone through the week safely.
Despite the weather good sales have been reported particularly at Suffolk on the Thursday, this is encouraging, there are customers out there wishing to spend – we just need the right conditions. Although cash flow is very tight there are glimmers of spending, keep friendly to your customers, go the extra mile for every sale.
We noticed at South of England a number of stands did not put up a backing with side walls to their stand – this is required at all RCA shows please, this enhances the appearance of your stand, provides extra display space and makes you look professional. If you do not have a backing to your stand please build/purchase one before your next RCA Show – call us for help and advice or book our grey panels this is really important for your sales this year.
If you wish to move your stand at a show may we ask you to call us 2/3 weeks prior to the show and we will do our best to re-arrange the layout – we try to send the plans to the managers a week prior to each show but if we receive late changes this delays the process – thank you.
Special note – to all exhibitors at Bramham Horse Trials, we have received so many compliments on the RCA pavilion at this event, visitors and outside exhibitors have commented on the high standard of work and display, thank you everyone and Katherine for her ever positive attitude.
