Encore catalogue group gets back to face to face with a roar
This May, set in the stunning backdrop of Woburn Safari park, Encore delighted their catalogue group members with their latest launch in the Safari Lodge, surrounded by some of the UK’s best suppliers ready to share their latest news, ranges and advice.
Encore founder, Diane Jaggard, welcomed the group and invited everyone to explore and talk before Awards were announced later in the day. A busy day was set for great conversations packed with members of the group arriving to fulfil their increasingly busy order books. Most distributors attending were coming to have longer conversations, explore the ranges in more detail and do what this industry does best; face to face business.
Incorporating the Encore Catalogue Group awards, Supplier of the Year went to Laltex Group, with Just Pads securing second place and Keramikos a close third place. Distributor of the Year went to Ross Promotional, Gilt Edged Promotions sailing into second and Formcraft in third place.
Diane Jaggard commented ‘It was so lovely to see everyone after 3 years absence from an Encore event due to Covid. We were back at Woburn in the lovely Safari Lodge; unfortunately the veranda views could not be enjoyed so much due to high winds and a chill in the air. The atmosphere in the room was very warm and a lot of happy faces meeting up again after a special drive through the Safari Park – it’s not everyday you come across elephants and giraffes on your way to work!
The new Encore catalogue has had some excellent reviews and together with the improvements to our websites and data working with Sourcing Machine. The Group continues to grow from strength to strength maintaining our excellent supplier and distributor members. We could not be successful without the support of all our members.’
