Trade News

Posted by The Art Ministry Team on December 6, 2006

November has been an amazing month for The Art Ministry.  Having just launched this year in June we have excelled our expectations and reached our targets for trade 3 months early. 

In August we launched an advertising campaign for independent commercial agents to build a sales team to cover the UK and Ireland.   We have been very successful and now have a group of 10 agents, all of with at least 10 years experience, who span the UK and Ireland and cover over 4,000 retail outlets between them.  This sales team will take our products to galleries, specialist high street stores, interior designers, department stores, garden centres and furniture stores. 

Our Field Sales Consultant Doug Fleming, is well known to many retailers and designers thoughout the UK and Ireland, having 40 years experience.  On taking this appointment with The Art Ministry Doug says, “The exceptional value, quality and exclusivity of The Art Ministry range will make the company a first port of call, particularly for those retailers and designers seeking products for the discerning buyer.  Mass consumerism and cheap imports are fueling the public’s desire for originality, personalized items and collectibles, therefore I believe The Art Ministry has launched at the right time and is due to make it’s mark on the buying public.”

To support trade sales The Art Ministry will also be taking part in two trade fairs this Spring; The Spring Fair in the NEC in Birmingham Feb 4th – 8th, which is the largest in the country and attracts 78,000 trade buyers (not public); and the Royal Dublin Show March 25 – 28th March, which attracts 30,000 buyers (including public). 

With our sales avenues now in place, the next six months will see massive growth of The Art Ministry.  It means that artists currently with The Art Ministry or who join in December have a fantastic opportunity to get massive exposure and make some serious income next year.  We are really excited about what this means to The Art Ministry and for all the artists and designers involved. 

On behalf of all at The Art Ministry, we would like to send a big Welcome to our Sales Team.  We offer them all our support and wish them much success with us in the future.
