Month of events

By Clare Meaney
on December 02, 2015

Well it’s been a busy month how glad I am the big events are over. They are amazing but really hard work at the same time but we would like to thank The disabled Living team from Kidz to Adultz up North and The OT Show team and all at the NEC for all there help and guidance on these big events. We learn every time we do a big event like these what we are doing well and what we need to learn from (we’ve certainly learnt we need a proper trolley to carry all our items!)


The biggest thank you has to go to my parents my mum being teacher for my little man who is now homeschooled, and helping get me organised and my dad who did both the events with me on his days off from his other business (and lent us a member of staff), I really am so lucky to have this amazing support network around me a little brother who helps me set up and ropes in a friend to help us out too, It really is a family business.


It’s also great getting to meet other exhibitors we had a great guy Ben from Integrex next to us at the OT show who gave us some very valuable tips on where to park and even gave me sweets (much needed) and let me play on the amazing interactive games they sell.


So I think our most popular products have been the unusual magnatabs have been a sell-out everywhere for kids with confidence issues around writing for whatever reasons (motor skills, autism, dyspraxia or just bored of the usual hand writing sheets) these are perfect.


Our glitter lamps have also been a big success as they are the first type like that which don’t heat up at all so perfect for babies up to elderly and everyone in between.


We love meeting all the families and love finding out what kind of things they want us to look out for, if you have any suggestions we are more than happy to try and find them. We even have a few people interested in designing things we know people are looking for now so it’s a very exciting time.
Now to decide which shows to do next year……………..

The Manchester Autism Show 2015 - Laughter and Surprise

By Clare Meaney
on June 30, 2015

So it’s been a very busy few weeks for us here at Multi-sensory World getting ready to exhibit at The Manchester Autism show it’s the first time we have done this exhibition so it was a bit nerve wracking trying to work out the amount of stock needed etc. it’s clear to say we completely underestimated how popular we would be and sold out of so many things and had to keep re-stocking with other items. Our chew Jewellery section was very thin after the first day and was empty by the end of the 2 days thankfully our supplier is fantastic and we are all stocked up again now as I know a lot of you were disappointed we had already sold so many.

The amount of times we had people coming back to the stall saying ‘I didn’t see this before’ it was a bit of a rugby scrum at times and our stall however big we have them always seems to be over flowing and a few people were pleading with us to get certain items out of the van which we did :-) Couldn’t say no.

The exhibition was brilliant unfortunately I didn’t manage to listen to even 1 talk as we were just too busy it’s great to give so many children, families and professionals the opportunity to try our products out, our stand was full of laughter and surprise. Laughter of happy children (and adults) trying out the water beads and kaleidoscope lamps surprise from parents watching their children who NEVER sit down sat on our Senseez cushions or with weighted lap pads and not moving off the seat at all. It really is lovely to see a bit of relief on parents faces as they realise that the sensory seeking can be calmed down with these simple tools.

    


A highlight for me was meeting the lovely people at the play doctors there products really are fantastic and it’s great to meet people with far more experience at exhibitions than ourselves to give us some insight.Also explaining to some families about Sensory diets as this has been so successful for us as a family with my little man (we will be following up in another blog on our progress soon) but so many have still never heard about it but we will keep trying to promote awareness.

We couldn’t thank the organisers enough they looked after us so much and the event city staff were also so helpful (even helped us with boxes on set up day) and we were so grateful for all the really positive feedback and compliments we received from the show about our Company, Facebook page and products and its great seeing some familiar faces popping up on our Facebook page.
