Encore Shows Growth
Stately Woburn was the venue for the catalogue group’s annual event, and the BPMA came too.
The Encore Catalogue Group met in late May for its annual catalogue launch, exhibition, and awards event. The venue, Woburn Abbey Sculpture Gallery, hosted 45 of the more than 70 Encore suppliers and on a sunny, spring day a majority of the distributor members gathered for an excellent event. Some of the members took the opportunity of visiting nearby Bletchley Park as well as the Safari Park and the Abbey and Gardens. Diane Jaggard, sales director of Encore,
said: “We couldn’t have wished for a better day, for the weather, beautiful surroundings and the support of our supplier and distributor members. The group continues to grow in numbers and quality, and we are delighted to see most of our new suppliers and distributors here today.”
Jaggard also presented the group awards before the afternoon exhibition. The winners for the 2018/19 catalogue were:
• Supplier of the Year – Senator Pens
• Runner up – Bizz Badge
• Third place – Crystal Galleries
• Distributor of the Year – Ross
• Runner up – Naomi Scott – Reflex Marketing & Promotions
• Third –Formkraft.
The BPMA was in attendance in the shape of CEO Jon Birrell and newly appointed marketing and events manager, Daniel Symonds.
