Displaying the Art

The day started with setting up the products at the stall. This task has to be strategy based where the strategy keeps changing depending on the response you get from the visitors. Our efficient team did the same. Interchanging the positions, removing some products and increasing alike products by displaying the variety at the counter were some of the strategies that worked and pulled visitors to our stall.

When the other exhibitors sold Kurtis, Imitation Jewellery, Rakhis, Scarves etc, Artikera showcased some unique pieces which would otherwise be difficult to find when required. The small paper bags with colourful designs didn’t go unnoticed by many. Their reasonable cost got them straight into the visitors hands. Earrings and Jumkas made with Quilling attracted the ladies. The premium paper bags and envelopes decorated with Quilled flowers grabbed a lot of attention. Apart from Artikera, many other exhibitors displayed their exclusive collection with Amritsari Clothes, Kaftans, Kundan Pooja Plates and more. Astrologer, Skin Treatment Centre, Diamond Jewellery Store were among the other exhibitors at the venue.

Reviews: Time and Again Banquet Hall and Happy Events

The Exhibition Venue: Time and Again Banquet Hall was conveniently located at one of the prime areas of the city. With Infiniti Mall located right next to the exhibition hall, it was expected that there will be many footfalls for exhibition. However it didn’t happen. Sadly the Event Organizer: Happy Events failed to gather enough visitors to the venue. Online and offline marketing was not efficient enough to do justice with the exhibitors. The Banquet too couldn’t light up the interiors with proper lights. The flash lights worked in some areas making the products sparkle, whereas many stalls had dull atmosphere with the products hardly getting attention.The corners of the hall had water dripping from the ceiling making the stall owners difficult to stay. With least aid from Time and Again Banquet Hall and Happy Events, some of the exhibitors ended up making no sales throughout the day.
