Wildlife World has built a new showroom at its workshop in Gloucestershire to to deal with the new working environment, lack of trade shows and restrictions as a result of COVID-19.

The new showroom has been designed to allow trade personnel to visit for a tailor-made tour of the full range of current and soon to be released Wildlife World products in a safe setting.

Mark Pitman, general manager, says: “We’ve put a lot of effort into making our new showroom as attractive as the area that surrounds us on site here at Chavenage House in the Cotswolds. With a keen eye for design we feel we’ve achieved this whilst maintaining a focus on a safe space for people to visit whilst the social distancing restrictions are still in place. We can think of no better way to get a truly personalised tour of the full range of our products and get a real idea of what we do here at Wildlife World.”

This new approach may have to be the way products are best displayed in this period of uncertainty, as around 70% of the 1,100 trade shows and exhibitions originally scheduled to run in the UK this year having been postponed until the final months of the year at the earliest. The roughly 140,000 small and medium sized businesses that use trade shows to generate sales and working relationships each year will have to find solutions to the cancellations of these trade shows.

“We’ve already had a lot of interest in the new show room, with several trade representatives already booked in with times to visit,” continues Mark. “We imagine we’ll get a lot more bookings now we’ve officially launched, and word gets out of the bespoke experience we’re offering. We’re constantly updating the products on display and with a few new arrivals for autumn we’re sure these early previews will arouse some intrigue. We’ll be offering virtual and video tours in due course, so if travelling isn’t an option you can still view our full range and not miss out.”

To book in a time and day to view the showroom and the full range of products available at Wildlife World, please contact Mark Pitman at mark@wildlifeworld.co.uk, phone 01666 505333 or visit www.wildlifeworld.co.uk
