sLast Sunday I visited the ShowUp trade show in Amsterdam. It was the second edition of this particular trade show focusing on home and gifts. I never heard of it before. Bibi de Lang from Bl-ij and Little Black Book, one of the lovely people I follow on Instagram shared that she was going to be one of the participants. Of course I was intrigued and googled ShowUp to learn more.
The first thing that was a hit with me was that ShowUp clearly stated on their website that bloggers where welcome. The entrance was free and the location just divine! The setup is small but with lots of wonderful brands. I had lots of fun talking to people about their businesses and new products and plans for the future. I discovered lots of new brands too of course. The thing that stood out to me was that a lot of these companies where represented, or owned by women. Lots of sister teams too. I just love that.
The highlight of my day was hands down when I got to meet Jurianne Matter. She was super nice and gave me her time and I totally appreciated it. Jurianne was there with her husband who was kind enough to give me a very nice goody bag which included Jurianne’s newest creation the XL Angels. It’s just total awesomeness. Can you tell I’m a total fan.
Here are some pictures I took at the show.
