Top Drawer London Sept 2013 – best stand competition

Last week Lynda and I were guest speakers at Top Drawer one of the countries premier home and gift exhibitions, we regularly talk at shows and exhibitions and really enjoy meeting independent business owners and giving free advice and ideas.

This year we were privileged to be asked to judge the best stand competition, no mean feet as there were over 200 stands to look at, we attacked this task with vigour and excitement as we love looking at what all the exhibitors have done anyway, I have to say we were so impressed by what we saw, so many exhibitors had really taken the time to think about what their stands looked like and the product presentation. But there can only be one winner in each category and here they are.

Winners of the best small stand category were a new company Rewined Candles who had flown all the way from Charleston in South Carolina, this was their first time at Top Drawer and not only did they win the best stand but also best product.

Here are some photos of their stand



here are a few more with notes about why we loved the stand.

Watch this great video about their journey to Chile to discover how Carmenere wine is produced for a limited edition candle.
