Creative Exchanges - International Conference for designers, demonstrators, bloggers and educators - 18th-20th April 2015, Holiday Inn Academy, Coventry
CHA UK (Craft and Hobby Association UK) has announced its first event specifically tailored for newly established Designer, Educator, Blogger membership section – Creative Exchanges International Convention.
The weekend event will be held in the heart of the West Midlands in England and brings together designers, educators and bloggers from all over the world to network with each other and companies and publishers within the craft industry.
“CHA-UK is focused on networking, educating, engaging and connecting members and non members. Working with the CHA UK board and designer members, Creative Exchanges will offer an amazing opportunity to learn, make new connections, grow and develop skills” says Craig De Souza, CHA-UK Director of Membership Services.
This is the brainchild of CHA UK board members, renowned designer and teacher Carolyn Schulz and award-winning creative entrepreneur, Sarah Hurley, along with member at large and CHA designer, Sara Naumann. The event is aimed at start ups, seasoned professionals and anyone in between.
Whether you stamp, sew, bake, knit, bead or scrapbook, Creative Exchanges is the place to be, giving you the chance to grow your business with educational seminars and networking opportunities. You'll leave with improved business skills and relationships with key industry leaders.
“We wanted to provide the business tools and opportunities we wished for when starting out in our own careers in the industry. This event will give you the chance to meet and network with leading manufacturers and publishers as well as other designers” says CHA UK board director, Sarah Hurley.
The weekend long event will cover a host of exciting seminars from Book Publishing, IP Law and Social Media through to Photography and Blogging as well as inspirational talks and Q&A sessions with industry figures who have been there and done it!
“Creative Exchanges is an educational event created for designers, by designers,” adds Sara Naumann “surely this is an opportunity you cannot afford to miss!”
