Statement from Joanne Mackaskie re: coronavirus
“It is with heavy hearts that we have had to make the decision to postpone all our events until at least July 2020. In July, we’ll review the situation and decide our next steps in relation to our events.
We need to keep our exhibitors & customers safe & adhere to government advice at this time.
We look forward to resuming again once it is safe to do so.
Stay safe everyone.”
Love Miss Ivy x
We are into March already and this blog was intended for January – as usual time has run away and I find myself in the midst of the usual whirlwind of event preparation for the months ahead. Today, after the snow scenario of last week, I have escaped for a couple of hours to reflect on decisions that have been made for this year and assure myself they were the right ones.
Miss Ivy Events were delighted to recently be an integral part of an episode of Channel 5’s popular series The Hotel Inspector, with Alex Polizzi.
We really can’t wait for our upcoming Devon Petfest at Redlake Trading Estate, Ivybride on 6th May from 10:00 til 17:00.
I keep getting asked how on earth I have gone from running Vintage and Wedding Shows to now focusing on ‘Pet Shows’ so I thought what a great blog post!
We are excited to announce that we will be holding a workshop day for our lovely exhibitors on Monday 13th March at Mount Edgcumbe Country Park, Cremyl. The workshop will cover that very important subject ‘selling’ that we all find hard to do! Martin from the’ Reluctant Sales is with us for the day and will be showing us an alternative to the ‘smoke and mirrors’ of traditional selling with an approach that is just as effective.
This December sees the 5th year of Miss Ivy events, with a special anniversary celebration being held at The Imperial Hotel, Torquay on 4th December. The venue has a special place in our hearts as it was the birthplace of the wonderful journey that we have taken over the past 5 years.
Last week, in preparation for our first ever pet event, the Festive Pet Show at Tavistock Town Hall on Sunday 6th November, myself, Dotty King from the amazing Dot-Teas, Lola, Primrose and the face of Miss Ivy’s new pet shows, Max, visited the Bedford Hotel for afternoon tea that featured some delicious doggy cupcakes made by Dotty herself.
