KENT, Ohio—The National Network of Embroidery Professionals (NNEP) holds its first annual Creative Display Contest to encourage the industry, and the apparel decoration professionals in it, to visually present their products and services well.
An NNEP blog post on the announcement reads:
One of the things that has bothered us here at NNEP about our industry is how poorly we present our products to our customers and in our business locations. It seems like embroidery and apparel decoration professionals give little to no thought or effort to making their products look appealing, in their retail locations and in meetings with potential customers. We need to develop our merchandising and display skills.
We are an industry that is all about helping our customers put their best foot forward, about helping them look pulled together, helping them look good!
The Creative Display Contest categories include:
- Retail Business Display
- Online Business Display
- Craft Show/Table Top/Event Display
- Window Display
- Sales Kit/Sales Presentation Display
To enter the contest, decorators have to send in a photo of their display and indicate in which category it falls under. Photos can be emailed or mailed in, whatever is more convenient. All entries received by the deadline, June 7, 2019, at 5 p.m. ET, will be displayed at the NNEP's upcoming Embroidery Mart trade shows in Tennessee and Indiana. Mart attendees and exhibitors will vote for their favorites in each category.
NNEP is looking for contest sponsors and prize sponsors at this time. Sponsors will be included in all the printed and digital materials promoting this contest, as well as receive mentions online.
