I think my head has just about stopped spinning after a wonderful but utterly exhausting week. I attended last year’s Gloucestershire Business Show and there was no doubt in my mind that I wanted to attend again but with a trade stand of my own!
It was my mum’s suggestion that I recreate the interior of Gloucester Studio and the ever resourceful Jonathon Watkins (Photoglow Photography) created the largest since image of his career (plus two others) which the brilliant Laura Riddell (Fastsigns Gloucester) printed onto simple pull-up banners that I taped together. I was utterly thrilled with the result and had lots of people say mine was the most attractive and memorable stand at the event. I loved how vivid the images were and am fascinated by how they affected people as while quite utterly impossible, it felt hot on my stand!
I met some lovely people and even managed to book an appearance on The Glos Show on the Friday after the business show which was a lot of fun even if I was a bit croaky from non stop talking to visitors to my trade stand.
