Telford chosen again to host UK Craft Event

A leading craft company has chosen Telford as the location for its UK Regional event for the fourth year running.

Stampin’ Up! is known for its exclusive line of decorative stamp sets and accessories for paper crafting, scrapbooking and home décor and operates via a network of independent sales consultants, known as demonstrators.

Approximately 350 demonstrators from all over the UK will travel to the International Centre, Telford for the event on 16 May 2015. The Regional Day programme offers creative inspiration featuring exclusive sneak peeks of new products, business presentations to support demonstrators in their efforts to grow their business and much more.

UK craft is undergoing a period of sustained growth. It is estimated the industry currently turns over around £400m annually, more than double compared to ten years ago, with a rise of 20% in the number of crafts businesses over the same period.

Paula Gorry, UK Business Development Manager, Stampin’ Up! UK says, “Crafting is a very social activity and our Regional provides the ideal opportunity for our demonstrators around the UK to share their passion for craft.

“The International Centre in Telford is in a prime central location with fantastic facilities; perfect for our UK event. We have great memories of the venue, so we are very excited to return for a fourth consecutive year.”
