One of my new year’s resolutions was to update this blog more frequently. So far this year, I haven’t been making stellar progress! Things have been busy this year so far, with many requests for new custom engraved S’well bottles, meetings with new retailers large and small and rolling out new products and new colors, coming very soon. On top of all this, it is trade show season again, and I once again find myself crisscrossing this great nation to attend gift shows with our amazing, energetic sales reps.
However, in the midst of all the flurry of activity, I wanted to take some time to update our S’well pals on some of our exciting international activity. Just this week, we have had some news from the far corners of the world that I find most exciting. So, in no particular order, here are a few recent examples of S’well bottles, taking the world by storm…. One bottle at a time!
The Prime Minister of Canada, Stephen Harper, is now going green and using his S’well bottle to tote coffee to hockey games and curling matches! He vows to give up plastic bottles this year and we are happy to share this picture
of him with his Ocean Blue.
S’well bottles made quite a stir at the Danish design and gift show last week. Check out this great picture of the show in Herning, Denmark. This warm welcome from the Danish design community is especially exciting, given the value placed on both beauty and function by Scandinavian designers. We are expecting just as much excitement at Maison & Objet, Europe’s largest show next week in Paris.
I am just as thrilled about our first entry into the Australia and New Zealand market! We have recently partnered with Until, and S’well has received top billing in the Australian Gift Industry newsletter
. I do certainly hope to take a field trip to visit our new partners in the land downunder just as soon as I can.
Rounding out the interesting international news this week, we received the following picture from one of our stores, a unique tea shop in the mountains of Taiwan. This S’well retailer wished us a “Kong Si Fa Tsai! ” or a very prosperous and happy Chinese New Year. Wishing this same greeting to each and every S’well pal.
Okay, it is back to work for me. With any luck, I should be updating this blog again very soon…
