The National Snow Show at Birmingham NEC in October 2022 was a wonderful event. It was great to meet so many lovely people, to show them the work, to hear and see their reactions, and to make it possible for them to own, art prints, greeting cards and signed first editions of Ski A to Z.
The National Snow Show was my first event doing every aspect of a show. I’ve worked at exhibition events before but always after the planning and set up. It was a busy time prepping for the show, determine the products, display, pricing and signage, but the long hours before the show were well worth it.
My mini art gallery space displayed high quality art prints, giclée archival inks printed on 100% cotton paper. Printing so good that the have been tested to not fade for 300-400 years! And yes that is possible top test by firing intense UV light in a controlled environment to simulate time passing! The art prints are mounted in conservation grade mount board, in glacier white colour in a range of sizes.
The prints were popular for those buying for themselves, for ski chalets/ themed rooms or gifts for friends who enjoy skiing and snowsports. To see all the range of prints click here.
Brand new for the show, in addition to the art prints were professionally printed greeting cards with ski and snowsport themes. I am offering bundles of these cards in my shop here.
The cards are blank for your message so they can be sent as birthday, Christmas, or notecards. The cards are high quality so they also look lovely framed.
It was magic when people brought their Ski A to Z books with them to be signed, and when one person said they had gone to the show to seek out my work. That means so much.
This was my latest event presence to date for Inspire by Kim, so I’m pleased the products proved popular. Wonderful to see all the work together and hear the reactions of so many lovely people.
“Wow”, “This is great”, “No one else is doing this.” “Amazing’”, just some of the many comments on the Inspire by Kim stand.
Great to see lifetime ski friends there and to also make new friends.
Thanks to everyone for the feedback, and sharing the ski stories. Here’s to growing the awareness of the joy of skiing and snowsports to attract more people to our sports. The slopes await. I was speaking at the show, to make it easier for new skiers to get into the sport. More about this later.
Thanks to the Ski A to Z publisher Meyer & Meyer Sport (UK) Ltd to Inframe Gallery for fine art printing/mounting, Killaprint for brand panel printing, Inframe for fine art printing and Sixprint for greeting card printing.
Have a great season all!
