Every year the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, hosts Focus. This celebration of the new season is a remarkable source of inspiration, knowledge and expertise for both trade and design-lovers alike. This year’s Focus/22 was an unmissable show where connections were created and ideas shared.
Franchi used this opportunity to launch the Elmes Artware collection, a Japanese-inspired line of exquisite ironmongery.
Chapman Consulting was requested to assist with the coordination of the Focus/22 event hosted at Studio Franchi.
The event planning began with the subdividing of tasks into pre and post event deliverables.
Our pre-event deliverables included, building interest for the showcase, creating a stunning space to display the products within and laying out a social media plan that would run from the month leading up to the event and then conclude the week preceding the event.
Our post-event deliverables entailed, ongoing business development follow ups utilising any leads obtained during the week of the showcase, post report analysis to assess the success of the event and finally content creation for social media to celebrate and reflect on the event.
The team was tasked with delivering all of this on just two months notice, which meant we had to work in a time efficient manner while ensuring we didn’t compromise the quality of what we produced.
We co-ordinated with multiple different suppliers to create the perfect design for the venue and our team ensured that all visuals and materials we incorporated, created a cohesive image that blended together seamlessly. Our social media team created a clear and concise plan that succeeded in garnering attention from not only existing clients but also attracting potential clients, which was reflected within the analytics during the month.
Our pre-event PR seen us obtain features on two leading pages for UK interior and property design, those being ‘Design Centre’ and ‘The House Directory’. In the weeks following the event, our head of business development obtained multiple client meetings, all from connections made during the Elmes launch.
The success of the event has enabled Franchi to expand their clientele base, as well highlight their commitment to showcasing their partners and clients in a positive manner.
