We’ve just got back from the headquarters of Schüller Möbelwerk KG. The biggest trip we've ever undertaken with 138 kitchen retailers, together with all the top trade and consumer journalists from the kitchen industry.
While we didn’t get off to a flying start (8 hour delay in Heathrow and cancelled flights) we successfully got everyone to Germany and ready for a packed day of events. A factory tour to see the new extended Schüller manufacturing facility, a tour of the Schüller.C collection and next125 showroom, plus new introductions and innovations for 2018. All topped off with a superb Oktoberfest special event hosted for our group.
Upskill People are passionate about providing positive e-learning experiences for retail and hospitality. Their new suite of courses is Managing People, which harnesses the power of high quality video production and dramatic scenarios to bring the role of leadership to life. We've loved helping them with a brand new Managing People microsite, email campaigns and social media. Not to mention a fantastic launch at The Shard in London...

This year's Glee at the NEC saw the introduction of some exciting new innovations from our client Elho. Not least the Green Basics Grow House Flower Bridge which won a New Product and a Consumers Choice Award. Now anyone can grow their own - even on the tiniest balcony.
Our lovely client Elho were the very worthy recipients of the Growing, Planting, Equipment and Sundries Award at the 2017 GIMA Awards in July. Elho won the award for the innovative Corsica Door Stopper – a clever plant pot and door stopper all in one.
The pinnacle of the garden retail industry’s calendar, the awards ceremony brought together manufacturers, retailers, members of the press and industry figures. We love the door stopper and won’t hold our doors open with anything else!
