Can you believe that we are at the start of November already??
I’m sure that everyone has been busy getting your Christmas displays organised and making the most of the opportunities presented at this time of year. It’s a great time to get in touch with your existing clients who may not realise what additional services you can offer to help them with their Christmas decorating.
Here at IPA we have been working hard behind the scenes. Our Design Trends and Product Showcase Presentation, held on the 15th October in Dingley Village Melbourne, provided members with some inspiration and a relaxed networking opportunity. Many thanks to Rachael Blake from Garden Creative Interiors for making the idea a reality, to the participating suppliers for providing product samples and to all of the members who attended. I’m sure that everyone took home some great new ideas and found the supplier contacts provided by Rachael very helpful in assisting to find that perfect solution for the ever increasing range of client requests. For those of you in Brisbane and Sydney, we are working on bringing the presentation to you in the New Year!
Also look out for the details of IPA’s “Photo Competition”…we have two signed copies of Denis Crawford’s Garden Pests, Diseases & Good Bugs (kindly donated to IPA by Dee Executive Board Member and owner of Office Plants Australia) to give away for the most inspirational photos.
I look forward to seeing many amazing photos shared on Facebook this month and in IPA December Newsletter!!
