At the start of this month we had 5 days at the reed gift fair at the Melbourne showgrounds.
Being our first tradeshow..didn't really know what to expect. Considering we only booked 10 days out from start, we ended up being pretty stoked with how it all turned out.
Layday's roots are in surf retail but with the small success we've had with Layday in our boutique style doorways - we wanted to fully explore this channel by meeting like minded, indi businesses.
All in all it was a great tradeshow to be part of. We met some really cool people both attending as buyers and the other brands with stories to sell.
New relationships, new stockists and now something we'll most probably lock into the annual schedule each year.
