Seminars & Demonstrations

Create some theatre on your stand and generate greater product awareness with seminars and demonstrations!  By showing unique product usage and presentation, live demonstrations and seminars will attract attention that static stands often don’t.

Clients who have benefited from these seminars and demonstrations include among others:  Penny Kennedy, Tiger Print, WBC, Hallmark, Vivid Wrap.

I also regularly offer in-store demonstrations and previous clients have included: Boots, Selfridges, Hamleys, John Lewis, Liberty, WH Smith.

Trade and consumer shows in the UK that have featured my seminars include: Spring Fair, Autumn Fair, Top Drawer Spring, Top Drawer Autumn,  Craft Hobby + Stitch, Pulse, Speciality & Fine Food Fair London, International Jewellery London, Home & Gift,  Crafts for Christmas, Ideal Home Show at Christmas, The Ultimate Christmas Fair and The Spirit of Christmas Fair.

Overseas, many shows including the New York International Gift Fair, National Stationery Show and the RPA Show in the United States, GIFTEX in Japan, Autumn Fair in Ireland, Home Expo in India, and Paperworld,  Christmasworld and Creativeworld in Germany.

“The special presentation ‘Let’s wrap!’ with Arona Khan is a real asset to Paperworld.  It is an absolute crowd-puller for visitors, offering plenty of added value. Arona Khan captivated audiences both with her charming and humorous manner as well as her illustrative and well-conceived wrapping presentations.  It is always amazing to watch as she turns the products into refined wrapped gifts.  I am very pleased that she will be returning to Paperworld and I am already looking forward to seeing her present her new ideas.”

Michael Reichhold, Director Paperworld, Messe Frankfurt Exhibition GmbH (Germany)

Review by The Giftware Association

"The icing on the cake was a series of colourful gift-wrapping demonstrations, sponsored by Penny Kennedy and given by the charismatic international gift-wrap guru, Arona Khan". The audience was bowled over with the lively sessions, as Carol Amirghiasvand, buyer for The Coach House Antiques & Interiors, said: "Arona Khan’s ideas on gift-wrapping are truly inspiring. Her ideas are so beneficial to a business. I know that if we could achieve a gift-wrapping service like this, it would sell product for us. It’s wonderful for retailers to be able to sit and absorb this subject at the fair."
