See the Cardgains Village at Autumn Fair

Anniversary cake-1This year the Cardgains Village at Autumn Fair hosts over twenty companies exhibiting some fantastic brands across a wide spectrum of products and ranges. Greeting cards, gifts, chocolates, party ware, balloons and gift bags all contribute to the variety you can look forward to seeing on the stand.


Two very new features for 2014 will hopefully add some ‘drama’ and ‘theatre’ to the Cardgains showcase, which can be found in Hall 4 stand E20 / F21.

Centrally on the stand visitors will find the first live ‘public launch’ of Cardgains’ new website and unique Cardgains web shop. Demonstrations will be operating in real time meaning members can actually place orders live at the show and they will most likely be delivered before they get back to their shop!

Also, Qualatex will be holding regular balloon demonstrations and display building options each day on their feature ‘stage’ at one end of The Village and The House of Sarunds will be offering chocolate samples to visitors at the front end of The Village.

Chris Dyson, Joint Managing Director of Cardgains commented, “Balloon demonstrations by the experts are always great to watch and offer inspiration and ideas within the balloon and party section of a retail store. We are lucky to have some of the ‘best in the business’ showing off their skills throughout the week on Cardgains Village. Come along and get inspired”!

Suppliers who will be exhibiting their latest products on The Village are: Carte Blanche, Cherry Orchard, Creative Party, Express Yourself, GiftMate, Grass Roots, History & Heraldry, House of Sarunds, IC & G, Is It Art, Ling Design, Mint Publishing, Museums & Galleries, Paper Island, Peartree Heybridge, Pioneer / Qualatex, Second Nature, Talking Pictures, The CD Card Company, The Great British card Company, UK Greetings and WPL. There are also many other Cardgains suppliers exhibiting around the show. Details can be acquired from Cardgains at the show.

Everyone is welcome on the stand! Existing members will receive additional entries into the Car-gains prize draw to win a Nissan Juke, whilst anyone interested in becoming a member will be offered a very warm welcome and five instant entries to get them on their way to the prize.
