Ellard attends the second-ever Blinds Networking Event

On Tuesday, April 23rd, industry professionals gathered for the second annual Blinds Networking Event, hosted by Lee Chapman, a very influential figure in the UK blinds industry. The event, held to foster connections within the blinds industry, featured 27 exhibitors including Ellard. Approximately 300 attendees had the opportunity to explore a variety of companies, products, services, and innovative solutions, making the gathering a resounding success. 

In preparation for the Blinds Networking Event, the Ellard team dedicated significant effort to ensure their exhibition stand was a standout. Thanks to the collaborative inputs from our technical, marketing, and sales departments, Ellard's display attracted a steady stream of visitors throughout the day. The result was a highly successful showcase at the blind expo, underscoring the company's commitment to excellence and teamwork. 

Julie Hawkins, Ellard’s Key Accounts Manager, and blind motor specialist recently took charge of the company's blinds accounts. Julie is dedicated to forging industry relationships, finding the Blinds Networking Event to be an invaluable platform. "This event provided a fantastic opportunity for me to personally meet those I've been in communication with," she said. She added that it allowed her accounts to put a face to the name of the person managing their enquiries. This interaction not only facilitated personal connections but also enhanced the professional relationships essential for business success. Julie says “This was my first experience getting to know the industry in person and I’m very excited to work with my team again on the next show”. 

The Blinds Networking Event provided the Ellard team with an excellent opportunity to engage with new faces and reconnect with valued customers. The unique environment fostered dynamic discussions that might not have occurred in non-face-to-face settings. We extend our gratitude to all who visited our stand and if we haven’t already, we will be following up with all the contacts we have gained very shortly.
