Lovehoney swapped the British winter for the sun-soaked Bahamas this month, meeting with new and existing customers from all over the globe at ExpoMark 2016.
Kate Hodgson-Egan, International Sales Manager for the UK and US, attended the Premiere B2B trade event, securing partnerships with key worldwide distributors and retailers.
Kate was on hand to provide customers with full insight into Lovehoney’s new ranges, including the tokidoki X Lovehoney pleasure collection and the highly anticipated Fifty Shades Darker – The Official Pleasure Collection.
Commenting on the event, Kate said: “The invitation to ExpoMark is an important opportunity for Lovehoney to travel across the world to speak with valued clients about their thoughts on Lovehoney’s new ranges and to hear their feedback.”
“It was valuable to review 2016 with existing customers and following the initial success of Lovehoney’s in-store training programme, we’re delighted that more retailers have signed up to the 2017 programme.”
“Anticipation for Fifty Shades Darker is building by the day and stores are preparing for an even higher level of demand this year. The magical tokidoki Unicorn Wand continued to turn heads in the Bahamas and it’s been extremely useful to hear clients’ positive feedback as well as understand their main priorities for next year.”
