The holiday trade show hosted by Planet Grapes, Wine Story, Healthy Options and Bow & Wow was a wonderland of decorations, products and specials. The trade show, titled Christmas Gift Show, was open to both the corporate clients of the brands, as well as walk-in consumers.
The second I stepped through the doors it felt like I had walked into an oenophile’s haven. There were bottles of wine displayed in glorious sets, glasses of red and white sitting atop white tablecloth, and a stunning contrast between the edgy decorations of Planet Grapes, elegance of Wine Story, and welcoming charm of Healthy Options/Bow & Wow. Check out their awesome decorations below!
Planet Grapes is such a fun brand, with a personality that anyone could get along with. Their sales staff even dressed in Star Trek costumes to suit the “Planet” theme! (get it? I thought it was pretty clever)
Their display was memorably funky and made a great impression with its cool simplicity. It felt like I was walking through an interactive exhibit of the solar system while I stood in front of their sets, sipping wine and deciding which one I wanted for the holidays.
I got the Mercury set after tasting the Joel Gott Pinot gris (which was a little sweet, but I know someone who would appreciate that). They had bottles open for tasting so you could try any of the wines before purchasing.
The Wine Story set up transports visitors to a crystal blue winter with visions of gold and silver. They had corporate case deals and special retail sets. As a special thank you to trade show guests, consumers could avail of an additional discount when purchasing five or more retail sets. I recommend the set of Hugel wines, which offer a mouthwatering representation of the Alsatian region in France.
Healthy Options / Bow & Wow
Last but not least were the Healthy Options and Bow & Wow displays, with snow-sprinkled sets of healthy food options (for both beloved pets and people).
Healthy Options is a prime example of food with integrity, as many of their fresh products are sourced locally and promote an authentically healthy diet in a world of additives. Their packaged foods consist of recognizable ingredients (not just a list of chemicals) and I appreciate their effort in making healthy snacks available, even for those with dietary restrictions.
It’s not too late for you to catch some special deals in a magical setting. Their final trade show of the year will be on Monday, October 20, at Shangri-La Makati’s Isabela Ballroom from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
