It’s crazy to think we’re already in December and preparing for Christmas. It has been a really great year in the Diane Harbridge HQ and Diane would like to say a big thank you to all of you lovely retailers for a successful and very busy year.
Diane has some exciting news for the new year as she will now be exhibiting across the country with the Bridal Roadshow, the first show being in February in Birmingham South. The Bridal Roadshow is an exciting and relatively new concept for the industry and it is remarkable how many people have registered, in fact, Diane was unable to get onto one of the dates as it was fully booked! From the abundance of names registered, it is very clear that the manufacturers feel this is the way forward as it reduces the costs heavily in comparison to the larger shows, this in turn helps keep the cost down for the retailers. In addition, it is a very savvy way of spreading buying costs out for retailers over the year, rather than having to save for an annual show. There are 4 shows Diane and the team will be attending and of course, the Harrogate Bridal show in September, so we hope to see as many of you there as possible. We’re thoroughly looking forward to a busy year exhibiting, we will also be holding 2 dates for our recent photo shoots which is very exciting as shoots are always fun!
