After a successful launch at Sydney’s ‘Naturally Good Expo’ early June 2019, it was time to gear up for the next event to continue showing off to the world the brand new product which is NoBites™!
The event we chose to attend was the ‘Outdoor Retailer Australia Show 2019’ (ORA) held at the Melbourne showgrounds and took place over 3 days from the 14th to the 16th of July 2019.
The show consisted of hundreds of brands being displayed and over 1000 visitors and buyers over the 3 days.
During the show we had the chance to meet some super friendly, supportive and interesting people who like us, love the outdoors and strive to create innovative new products to make it just that much easier to enjoy getting out there.
Apart from the chats about the freezing temperatures outside, the feedback from all of the visitors who dropped in on our stall was fantastic! Lots of questions, lots of positive feedback and plenty of new relationships made.
One of our more interactive visitors was Gill and Tim Savage from ‘Australian Hiker’ which is a highly rated podcast and is currently Australia’s most downloaded locally hiking podcast.
We were fortunate enough for Gill and Tim to ask to interview us, and of course we obliged happily! Episode 114 of the Australian Hiker Podcast featuring our interview can be found and downloaded anywhere you get your podcast from. You can also visit their website: www.australianhiker.com.au
Speaking of visitors, we do like to take a little pride in displaying our products by creating some atmosphere around our stand, so we were both ecstatic and surprised to receive the honour of being awarded the trophy for The Most Outstanding First Time Exhibitor at the Australian Outdoor Retail Show 😊.
This award was a surprise indeed! We are very grateful to the organisers of the event for recognising our efforts at our first time to the show. Thank you Australian Outdoor Retail Show.!
As a whole, we had a fantastic few days down in Melbourne. The show brought together some great people in a great location and overall an awesome non-profit event for outdoor retail space in Australia.
See you next year ORA!
