Your Association staged its first presence at the annual Scandinavian Christmas Market on 2 November. It was wonderful to help out the Danish Society who do a great job of organising this significant event on a shoestring budget. It is the largest annual Scandinavian event by far and we should be supportive of such initiatives.
The market enabled us to introduce hundreds of people who have never heard of the NZSBA to the Association. We could also leverage the improved marketing and imagery available after 2 years of much work to raise the profile and brand.
Our marquee contained a few members with appropriate product to add interest and variety. We also had a membership table and gained several new members as a result. For the benefit of the general public we provided a kids tent filled with LEGO blocks supplied by member LEGO NZ. This was a hit and very satisfying to see it so well received. Member Karajoz Coffee also supplied two coffee vans.
Thanks Claire for all the help organising our stand and manning it all day. Thanks Mette, the exhibitors and all others for the support and help, LEGOs NZ, Cult, Maudella, Karajoz Coffee and Susanna at the Swedish Society who also had a table in our marquee.
We learnt a lot and will continue with an improved presence in coming years. If you would like to be a part of the effort do let us know.
