Calling all retailers, manufacturers, publishers and designers: You're invited to the UK's biggest craft industry conference this summer! Whether your business is stamping, sewing, beading, knitting or cake, the CHA-UK's summer event isn't to be missed. Gain knowledge and contacts that will help you grow your business as you connect, engage and get inspired!
Creative Exchanges and The One Big Show are the CHA-UK's biggest events, and all under one big roof this year at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry. CHA-UK Board member and lead on the events committee Sarah Hurley said “ Feedback from last years events showed us that more than ever our manufacturers and retailers want to meet designers, educators and bloggers and of course, our designer members want to connect with potential work opportunities, bringing the two events together we can help all sectors of our membership to forge even more great connection.”
Creative Exchanges is the business event for creative professionals and offers designers, educators and bloggers (DEBS) the opportunity to learn with educational seminars and hands-on workshops. There's lots of networking opportunities to build new contacts and connect with industry leaders and other designers, and takes place between 25th - 26th June.
One Big Show International conference is for all CHA member groups and one again in partnership with Immediate Media members will be taken through the UK research with key insights into what that means for trends in your business. There's ample opportunity to network with major buyers, suppliers and industry leaders, and gain valuable business advice through targeted seminars and the uplifting keynote addresses. The events follows on from Creative Exchanges on 26th - 27th June.
