It’s the 30th October and it feels like I’ve only just had the chance to catch my breath after a very busy period for our business. So I wanted to take the opportunity to publicly thank our brands, partners and of course our team for all their help and support through IFA and the subsequent period of follow-up. It’s been very hard work for everyone involved and although the results won’t be immediate they will be well worth the effort.
2019 was definitely the most successful IFA so far. According to the event organisers, the show was bigger and better than ever. For me it was great to catch up with our brands and the partners who, over the years we’ve come to think of as friends. It was also exciting to spend time looking at some incredible innovation from start-ups from all over the world. Most importantly the team worked hard to make the most of all the pre-scheduled meetings with retail and distribution partners finalising opportunities in 2019 and planning for 2020. With only 2 months of trading left in 2019 we remain laser focused on securing last minute placements in retail.
As we head towards December our attention will inevitably turn towards next year and CES, but in the meantime I’d like to wish everyone a successful Q4!
