R H Smith & Sons, whose Smiffy’s, Fever and Time4Fun brands experienced massive growth in 2012, celebrated their success by saying a big “Thank you!” to the customers who made it all possible! At an after-show party as part of the 2013 Halloween and Party Expo in Houston, they threw a ‘traditional pub night’…well, what else would you expect from a company from the UK?
Bar games and Beer Pong served as the main attractions, with even pole dancing featuring throughout the night! The sales team were in great company and were presented with gifts from one of their largest customers, Costumes Galore. R H Smith’s employees have a reputation for getting the party started, and with hundreds of guests partying till the early hours, they certainly lived up to their company slogan…serious fun!
Julian Smith, Head of International Development at R H Smith’s, said, “This served as a great opportunity to interact with our customers on a purely personal level; to chat, relax and party the night away – strictly no business! After such an intense event as the Halloween and Party Expo, it’s important to wind down and connect with our customers. Next year, we may have to find more room, as our ‘down to earth’ celebrations attracted more people than we could accommodate this year!”
After almost 50% growth in their US business last year, and with orders already up by the same amount in 2013, it looks like another big year in prospect for the UK business. They put this down to strong new product development – with over 1000 new lines across their ranges in 2013 – and their continued commitment to service, quality and value. R H Smith are definitely looking forward to returning to the show and bringing the party next year!
