The inaugural Inspire Cambridge, presented by Velvet Magazine launched at Quy Mill Hotel & Spa, alongside the well-established Cambridge Art Fair last month.
Inspire Cambridge, sponsored by John Lewis Home Design Service, Sworders Auctioneers and David Hall Kitchen & Furniture Makers, attracted thousands of visitors and a wonderful collection of exhibitors in the home, property, food and drink industries from across the East of England region.
Thank you to our wonderful sponsors and exhibitors and to all those who came along to support the event. We look forward to developing the event for 2019 so that it attracts even more fantastic independent businesses from across the region.
Inspire Cambridge 2018 has become the basis of the second partnership we have with Iliffe Media, after Motor Show EAST. This fantastic new home interest consumer show will now be known as Inspire Cambridge, presented by Velvet* Magazine.
We are very pleased to be working so closely with the brilliant team at Iliffe Media on this new project. We worked with them on Cambridge Art Fair 2017 as media partner and currently as joint venture partners for Motor Show EAST 2018. We have been able to develop effective working relationships very quickly with several key members of the team and we look forward to making the most of those working relationships for Inspire Cambridge.
Iliffe Media will manage exhibition and sponsorship sales for the event. The glossy Velvet* Magazine will be the lead title in an expansive marketing campaign that will cover the eastern region, culminating in a special edition in September that will become the 'fair guide' for the event. They will continue to be Media Partner for Cambridge Art Fair which runs alongside Inspire Cambridge, presented by Velvet* Magazine, at the new and improved Cambridge Roar Marquee at Quy Mill Hotel & Spa.
We are confident that our partnership with Iliffe Media will enable us to deliver a successful, high quality event that provides valuable exposure and selling opportunities for our exhibitors, partners, sponsors and advertisers.
