The Parkwood Springs team started the new year full steam ahead! We have attended trade shows all over the world and have launched some exciting new ranges. Read on to see what we’ve been up to over the past few months.
January through to March are known as ‘Tradeshow Season’. During these three months, our team travels to various tradeshows and exhibitions around the globe to meet both current and prospective clients whilst showcasing our gorgeous giftware ranges created by our designers. It is a great opportunity to speak to get to know our customers better and to give them a chance to get to know us better too. It is also great for trend spotting, our team love to walk through the endless aisles browsing the products and chatting with other exhibitors.
