Spring Fair 2022
It’s time to put the kettle on for a good old British cup of tea, this spring we are heading to the UK in person!
It seems like a lot has changed since the last time we were in England, we now have Grant as our UK and Ireland Sales Manager, many distributors around the country and a growing tribe of loyal fans. Unfortunately the pandemic has kept us away for far longer than we would have liked, but that only makes us more excited to visit now.
First in the calendar is Spring Fair, held at the NEC, Birmingham, on February 6-10.
Gloria, Genesio, Grant, Dominique, Clara, Vincenzo and the rest of the team are already packing their bags and checking their tickets, ready to board the plane. Come and join the party at stand 3G10-H11, tickets are free and you can register here. As well as sharing all the latest trends and glorious colours, we will be holding a series of Creativity Workshops featuring our own Vincenzo and three wonderful instructors from the National Association of Balloon Artists and Suppliers. We are very excited to collaborate with our friends from NABAS, together we can create something truly extraordinary! Come along and join in with fun and practical workshops, or just join us for a chat!
Spring Fair Creativity Workshops:
9.30am and 3.30pm daily
- Sunday 6th – Liz Milligan @executive_events_balloons
- Monday 7th – Claire Carney @clairecarneyfab
- Tuesday 8th – Fiona Eagle @theballoonstylistlondon
- Wednesday 9th – meet NABAS committee members Victoria, Kirsten & Paula
We truly can’t wait to meet you. Make sure you race to us at Spring Fair to get your hands on a Gemar goody-bag while stocks last. We will be scanning your passes and signing you up to all of our marketing at the stand too so you are being kept fully up to date.
Then we head across to the Blackpool Balloon Bash on March 4-6, held at the Imperial Hotel in Blackpool. This is the UK’s biggest and best balloon twisting event and has been growing every year since it first started in 2014. Aiming to bring together like minded people, from beginners to experts, this is guaranteed to be a fun filled weekend! We all wanted to spend a few days by the sea but lucky ambassador Irina Gvozdenko won a coveted place among the expert lecturers, and you’ll find ambassador Gergo keeping an expert eye on the jam room. We can only hope they remember to bring us back a stick of rock.
If you don’t have a ticket yet you still have time to get one, they are available here.
Two UK events are simply not enough after so long, and when the Balloon Bash is over we know that nobody will be ready to leave! Which is why we decided to head off on the UK Road Show! We will be touring around our distributors, reveling in the chance to meet everyone in person. Irina will teach a workshop in each location, while the rest of us simply enjoy hearing your voices, sharing your laughter and making new friends. You can find out where we will be here.
With so many fantastic opportunities, we can’t wait to see you at one of them. Which one will it be?
