Member Marketing

Cardgains continues to develop through its marketing initiatives and activities, which take place throughout the year. The Cardgains marketing calendar has proved effective and a benefit to both members and suppliers.

Some activities cater for both parties, whilst others aim to develop either the member and their store, or the supplier and their distribution.

The 2022 programme focuses on:

Cardgains Village

It was great to be back in Birmingham at this year’s Spring Fair where we were once again reunited with ‘the industry’ after 2 years!

There was a definite buzz about the show with retailers being able to buy face to face and touch and feel the products featured. 

The Cardgains Village was back at the front of the hall and the Village exhibitors put on a great show throughout the week, so a big thank you to all of them for their commitment to our members. 

A big thank you to everyone who visited the show and came to say hi on the Village too.  We get great feedback from members every year at the show, and this year was no exception. 


New Member Welcome Goodie Bag

A popular initiative for new members to Cardgains is the Goodie Bag Programme.

The goodie bag is full of some great products and ideas that will benefit your business.

A unique promotional email system giving suppliers the opportunity to communicate their ‘hot’ deals and promotions without having to wait for the monthly newsletter. Members wishing to register their email address to receive the whats-hot deals, can do so by clicking the link:
