“We attended with trepidation but we and all the stand holders meet with key buyers and influential people in the UK creative market. We had good conversations, networking and build business/working relationships and ultimately we have got a solid return on our investment. One Big Show really paid off for us and I’d encourage other companies to get involved and see your business grow in the UK!”

“We truly appreciated the support from the UK association and the board in connecting us with decision makers in the UK Craft industry. We were able to talk with all the companies we had hoped to and hold follow on meetings at their facilities. We now have multiple relationships in the UK and have successfully launched our product. Yes, we would definitely recommend show attendance to other US based companies in this industry!

“As a relatively new supplier to the craft industry this intimate event gave us the opportunity to have one-on-one meetings with the decision makers of major resellers. The casual event also included multiple informative and topical presentations and ample networking opportunities.”

We got 3 potential new suppliers from the day and found the Warren Knight talk really interesting. You can count on Hochanda’s support for 2018

I had a nice couple of days networking, and getting to know new people. The talks from ‘Warren Knight’ and ‘David Hyner’ were very inspiring. Also, to hear Stacey Farneth Caron on her story building up ‘Spellbinders’. Craig the ‘Executive Director’ of AFCI-UK is always on hand to help everyone at anytime, massive support to us all. AFCI.UK is a growing organisation, that will expand over the next few years, and a great support for your own growing business.

We took away a renewed sense of enthusiasm, we swapped contacts with a good number of people and hopefully will be doing business with several over the coming year.

The One Big Show 2017  was a fantastic event yet again. The show seems to get better every year and this year raised the bar again. As well as making new friends from around industry who share the same passion, it was so inspiring to see some of the new talent coming into the industry with the help of the AFCI.UK. Great forum’s, workshops and seminars, didn’t stop learning all weekend from Designers, Suppliers and other Retailers. Endless advice and mentoring. Thank you to everyone involved, we came away with a real buzz about the industry! Looking forward to 2018 show already.

Overall I was very impressed with this event, it offered a great deal of good advice from many sectors of the Craft Industry. It was nice to meet the other members who attended and have the chance to share experiences and information etc. This event has lots to offer a new or established business and is one I will want to attend next year!

I didn’t know what to expect, all I knew was that I didn’t want to miss it. And I’m so glad I didn’t miss it! I’ve met some wonderful people, learned a lot about how to market yourself on social media. But most of all, I’ve joined an Association that will do everything they can to help me on my journey to success.
