On the 2015 edition of this alternative travel fair, I presented the concept of the Wanderbelt for the first time to the public. Based on the enthusiastic feedback I received there and then, I decided to proceed and bring the Wanderbelt to market. And so it happened: I created my own company called Wanderwave and launched the Wanderbelt; a new type of money belt, especially designed for travelling women :-)
This year, on the first spring-like sunshiny day in Belgium Wanderwave was back at the Reismarkt in Brugge. As I again wanted to make a good impression, I updated my posters and prepared new leaflets with tips and ideas on how to use the Wanderbelt. The pictures on the new posters were taken in the Cameron Highlands in Malaysian and show the Wanderbelt being used in a real travel situation. My former posters focused more on the product features, but according to some and I agree, may have lacked a bit of travel charm. I received great reactions on the new look of the Wanderwave booth and again mannequin Maaike proved to be a great help to present and explain all the Wanderbelt’s great features.
My dear mum Linda, joined to lovingly and enthusiastically support me at the Wanderwave booth and help me present the Wanderbelt to the +3000 visitors of the Reismarkt. Due to the beautiful weather outside, there were slightly less visitors than last time, but still we managed to have good sales and most importantly, have a good time :-)
By now my daughter is around 18 months and clearly has inherited my globetrotter genes, which means I spend my days running after her while she discovers the world around her. As such, I thought is wiser to not bring her along. When she was still a little baby, I did take her with me to travel fairs like this, using my mobile changing room, where you can try out the Wanderbelt, as a nursing room… oh oh, I’m getting nostalgic… ;-)
We finished the day with the raffle of the *Win a free Wanderbelt* contest and as you might have read in my former post, out of the 300 people who participated, it was actually a man (!) who won :-) In the meantime winner Patrick from Brugge enthusiastically got back to me and by now received his Wanderbelt by mail. I wonder who will be the lucky lady he will be making happy with his price…
Happy travels to all and warm regards,
