Suffolk-based promotional gifts specialist Falcon has hailed its annual exhibition as resounding success.
The Woolpit company, which has been trading for 27 years and held its first showcase event 14 years ago, staged its 2013 Promotional Gift and Merchandise Exhibition at the Newmarket Rowley Mile Conference Centre.
Sales and marketing director Paul Peachey said: “A good number of regular and long established suppliers to Falcon Promotions exhibited a wide range of promotional merchandise
“They were rewarded with a string of quality enquiries on the day and within the space of 24 hours many valuable orders had been placed.
“Although numbers generally attending exhibitions maybe down, the quality of enquiries remained high and a number of suppliers commented on how enthusiastic the buyers were that visited on the day.
“Innovation was important and the large range of products available was evident from the keen interest and general order in-take shown from the Falcon order book. Many customers visited the show looking for ways to promote their next company campaign or product launch”
He added: “The opportunity for our customers to meet a wide range of suppliers is paramount, we feel that Falcon continue to promote what is available in the promotional market place without the hassle of travelling afar.
“This excellent venue is the ideal central point for our clients in East Anglia, although many customers travelled from further a field and the venue has already been booked for 2014.”
Falcon managing director Les Wright said: “As always a large amount of effort went into this year’s show, a great deal of the time was spent by our sales team encouraging customers and potential customers to visit the show.
“With the support our suppliers give us, it is very pleasing and satisfying to see yet again the quality of the enquiries they receive from those that attend the Falcon exhibition.”
On the day before the exhibition, Falcon also hosted a golf day for suppliers at Bury St Edmunds Golf Club. Richard Jones from Branded Products won the individual event with a Stapleford score of 38 points, with the team prize being won by Les Wright, Mike Busson, Robert Hicks and Sion Jones.
This was followed by a dinner for 68 suppliers and staff at Bedford Lodge in Newmarket.
