After being nominated by our branch of HSBC, we have won the our region, and now go on to the finals of the HSBC "Start Up Stars" award.
It is great to that the panel at HSBC feel our success, as a new company, is the best in the region, and hopefully we have a good "case" to win it overall! Fingers crossed for the end of September when we should hear.
Picture Case are proud to announce they are the official luggage sponsor of Miss England, and Mr England.
We will be providing Luggage sets and our "Flag of St George" on flight cases for the winners and runners up.
The winner of Miss England will be chosen at the national final held over a two day period on the 31st August and the 1st September 2010. The event is being filmed for The Active Channel (Sky Channel 281). The event is supporting the Variety Club of Great Britain. The winner will go on to represent England in the Miss World Contest in China in October. Carrying our cases all the way!
Our first time at the Harrogate was great fun for us, and I didn’t realise what a lovely place it is.
Stars of the show were again "the Cuties and Pals", who were on everybody’s orders. Peko the penguin and Cheri the panda sold the most, but we took lots of pre-orders for Cazbi the bee and Pookie the pig for when they arrive in October. So watch out for a "Cutie" invasion just before Christmas!
Meeting people who are not just from the luggage/fashion sector, made the show very interesting, and enabled us to pick up lots of new contacts, and hopefully get our Picture Cases in more “gifty” shops, rather than in just luggage departments. So thanks for all our current customers who took time to come and see us, and all the new ones too!
thebabywebsite have taken 3 of our "Cuties and pals", Peko the penguin, Pipi the owl, and Cheri the panda case and back pack combo,to give to 3 Mums for their children to road test them!
The initial response on the blogs, was exactly what we have come to expect with "the Cuties", the kids luv 'em!
So to see how the Mum's and kids get on with Picture Cases "Cuties and Pals" on their holidays over the next few weeks, follow their comments at http://www.thebabywebsite.com/community/viewtopic.php?f=33&t=25087&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=50
We are adding a page to this website so all customers can give a review of not just "The Cuties" but all our cases.
