Ringing in the New Year!

2013 CalendarWell, we're back. The staff of National Event Supply are back from their Christmas Vacations and are feeling recharged and ready to start the New Year off with a bang. Projects that have been months in the making are quickly coming to an end. We have a new catalogue with all of our new products in the final phases and (almost) ready to print. The website is being dramatically revamped (again) with an eye towards the mobile web, and improved useability. New business cards have arrived and our new calendars are up and keeping the big dates in our minds.

Spring Buying

Winter has just begun, but it's time to start planning for Spring Purchases. At National Event Supply, we pride ourselves on being a stocking warehouse. We always try to keep things in stock so that if you need 50 folding tables shipped to you immediately, we can ship you 50 tables. We want you to be able to call us up and order a dozen plates (or 100 dozen plates) secure in the knowledge that we'll have them. Of course, sometimes we misjudge our stock levels, and run out of things like folding cocktail tables and white resin folding chairs. That's why we encourage people to let us know what they are interested in fairly early so we can order items accordingly. If you're interested in plastic folding tables for April, let us know now and we can put together a quote for you. Even if you don't want/need the folding tables until later in the spring, we'd like to know about it early enough so we can work to make sure we don't run out of the tables before you purchase yours.

Custom Orders

Now is also the time to inquire about custom orders. Custom orders typically take 90-120 days for manufacturing and shipping to our warehouse. If you're looking for a piece of custom dinnerware, or a particular colour of Chiavari Chair Cushion, now is the time to contact one of our sales reps and let them know what you're interested in.

Trade Shows

January, February, and March are also filled with trade shows. The National Event Supply trade show team will be doing a trade show on each of the last three weekends of January. On January 11 and 12, the trade show team will be in Surrey, BC for the BC CRA Regional Trade Show. On January 19, Dennis and the trade show team will be in Alliston for the CRA Ontario Tabletop Show. The trade show team ends the month back in BC at the BC Foodservice Expo on January 27 and 28. Dennis and the trade show team then get a couple of weeks to catch their breath before they head on down to Las Vegas for The Rental Show. You can get more information about each of the trade shows were exhibiting at here.

2013 has just started and already it's shaping up to be a big year. If you have any questions about our products, about custom orders, or about our trade show schedule, please don't hesitate to drop one of our sales reps a line!
