On behalf of the whole OpenSky team, I’d like to thank you for sending your incredible products for inclusion in the holiday press event we held last Thursday.
It took a whole lot of teamwork, creativity, and coffee to put the event together–and it was well worth it! The buzz in the office on Thursday among members of the press was electric. We already have several pending press opportunities as a result of the event, with more to come as we head into the holiday season.
I’ve included a few snapshots from the event in this post and we’ll be sharing additional images in the OpenSky feed and on our social media channels over the coming days.
Your products were displayed by category, making it easy for editors, bloggers, and contributors to navigate to their areas of focus. Our displays included “Gifts for Her”; “Gifts for Him”; “Gifts for the Beauty Junkie”; “Stocking Stuffers”; “Gifts for Babies, Kids, and Tweens”; “Hostess Gifts”; “Foodie Gifts” and “Gifts for Pets and Pet Lovers.”
A total of 33 attendees came through the doors of OpenSky HQ, from a variety of outlets including Parade, TODAY Show, New York Times, AM New York, People.com, FoodNetwork.com, Glamour.com, iVillage.com, and more.
Upon exiting, all attendees were provided with a gift bag filled with an assortment of products from OpenSky, along with a flash drive containing product look books by vertical. The look books have also been distributed to all members of the press who were unable to attend as well as press around the country.
Below is just a small sampling of the feedback we received from a few of our attendees:
I will be reaching out to merchants individually as we hear of interest in your items from members of the press. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the event, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Wishing you all a very happy and healthy holiday season!
