Everest

Everest approached us looking for a bespoke exhibition kit design and subsequent sourcing to support their top regional sales consultants.

Trust

Everest has over 1000 self-employed sales consultants, who are supported by central marketing. The marketing team wanted to fund an exhibition kit for the top 50 sales consultants in the UK and were struggling to source a suitable solution.  The kits needed to be used in locations such as supermarkets, local markets and shows and outside areas.

They came to Graft as an existing client of Howard Hunt, our sister company – knowing they could trust us to get the best price and highest quality.

Everest wanted the kit to include a fold-out table and branded tablecloth and product boards on which panels could be added and removed dependent on what they were promoting. They needed to be flexible in order to support the sales consultants to choose products – for example, they may only advertise windows when exhibiting in B&Q, but choose to also advertise door, driveway and roofing products when at a local fete.

We called on our network of approved suppliers to find the best solution for the exhibition kit. The products needed to be lightweight for easy transportation, high quality and cost-effective. Five suppliers were chosen in total, each providing different parts of the kit so Graft could ensure best value for each element. Every product, including the ancillary pieces such as Velcro, product board clips and the tablecloths were sourced at the best price.

Graft then delivered each exhibition kit to individual sales consultants, souring a lightweight custom carry bag to enable them to easily transport their kit around. Graft also recognised that the product clips were likely to be a weaker and easily misplaced element, so they over sourced these and distributed them to a central location to enable the sales consultants to call for more stock as and when required.
