Once again this month we opened the doors of the Denton Drapes workroom to customers, suppliers and friends on our annual open day.The idea behind the open day is to give our domestic clients the chance to see where their soft furnishings were constructed and to give our trade customers the chance to meet the team that make their projects.
We now welcome many of our designer clients and some of our suppliers as well and also get a number of potential customers who take the opportunity to examine our fabrics and view the samples on display. One fan of our Facebook page even made a 320 mile round trip from Cheshire in order to meet the team and take a look around.
This year the event was just after the launch of our new logo and image redesign which meant investment in a suite of new signs and notices around the place as well as the replacement of some of our displays with pieces made from some of the most recently released fabrics. Curtain makers and office staff were all on hand to show our guests around and to answer questions about our making techniques and marketing activities.
Most visitors also spent time chatting together while enjoying a buffet of delicious food, champagne and soft drinks. Denton Drapes Director Penny Bruce was in constant demand from customers interested in ordering new projects and several have already placed orders as a result. A day like this takes a lot of preparation but it really is a lot of fun and we’re all looking forward to the next time in 2012.
