So this week we are dashing round with final preparations for our stand at the Worlddidac Education Trade exhibition in Basel next week. Stand designs have been signed off, products have been shipped, brochures have gone to the printers and most importantly the tea and coffee machines have been safely packed away with the rest of the materials being shipped to Basel in Swizerland.
We are very excited to be showcasing our two most significant launches of the last decade: the SmartCase and the new Callero range. SmartCase has just been launched and Callero units will be available in 2015.
Don’t forget if you visit our stand you could be the lucky winner of a Kindle Paperwhite. The show runs in Basel, Swizerland from October 29 to 31 So please join me on the Gratnells stands D100 and D105. I look forward to seeing you there.
You can read more about our show plans here.
If you will not be attending the Worlddidac show but would like the latest information on our new launches you can see the new Callero and SmartCase brochures on the trade section of our website.
We spotted some more Gratnells trays on the TV this week. The team from Salvage Hunters were at Kimbolton School in Cambridgeshire and spent some time in the Science Lab. Celebrity antiques dealer Drew Pritchard spotted an old collectors’ cabinet that he considered an antique. In the background is a bank of tray storage units (clearly the real treasure!)
Salvage Hunters is broadcast on Quest TV in the UK and follows Drew Pritchard as he criss-crosses the country to search for derelict gems that can be given a new lease of life back at his antiques yard with the help of wife Rebecca, sidekick Tee and his team of renovators, wood carvers, upholsterers and guilders.
You can watch the episode on catch-up here and you can read more about the show here.
Kimbolton School which is featured on the show wrote about the experience on their blog where you can see some behind the scenes photographs.
We were delighted to spot this conversation on Twitter this week. ‘You know you’re a teacher when finding unused Gratnells trays and drawers at school is a personal highlight’ Actually we are the ones feeling like the proud parent!
