Every 3 years our industry (The Blind Industry) has a Super Expo showcasing the latest development in technology and trends in fabric and fashion when it comes to window furnishings.
That's an Expo you ask? Yes it is and its HUGE. People travel from all over Australia to see the latest developments. The main comment from our NEW team was "Wow, I didn't realise how big and professional the industry is.
Our team were given 3 jobs:-
Why did we take our team with us to the Super Expo on the Gold Coast in June?
To quote Tom O'Toole, who was once asked "What if you train your staff and they leave?" which he replied "What if I don't and they stay!"
One of our goals is to be the market leader in our region. We figure if we can be the best at what we do, there will be no need to travel away from the Central Coast to get the best. We can supply it right here. Local business, local jobs and all that! We are so proud to be a local family manufacturing business employing local people. But that means we have to invest in technology, knowledge and more importantly our people.
So although we are all a little tired this week, we are pumped up with new found knowledge and inspiration - ready to be the "local experts"
Some pics from the week!
