Friday 4th July sees the opening of the Allergy and Free From Show – an essential annual fixture in the allergy, intolerance, coeliac and free-from calendar – which runs until Sunday 6th at the Grand Hall, Olympia in London. This year it will be co-located with the brand new Love Natural, Love Organic show – an official partner of the Free From Skincare Awards – plus the veggie/vegan Show V Delicious as well.
We will be announcing the winners of the Skincare Awards on 2.30pm on the Friday, with Janey Lee Grace presenting certificates to winners – as well as the overall winners trophy. Having processed around 1,000 completed questionnaires from our army of around 120 Beauty Bible testers, we now have the results – and can’t wait to let you in on the secrets! There might be a few surprises in store …
(Here are Janey and I watching proceedings last year!)
Invites to the presentation have gone out to all shortlisted candidates, and we hope to see as many of them as possible on the day. Naturally, some are getting a bit excited. “Can you tell us if we have won?” a few have ventured. No, I’m afraid we can’t! As we have always said, we do not ‘tip off’ any of the winners, so our lips are strictly sealed until the 4th. (And if you don’t believe us, you may like to ask the two or three brands who were not present to collect their Gold Awards last year … and later regretted it!)
There is such a lot to see at the Shows, that it’s a well worthwhile day out of the office or home. We are exhibiting all three of the FreeFromMatters.com team’s Awards on Stand A230 – The FreeFrom Skincare Awards, the long-standing FreeFrom Food Awards, and the newly launched Free From Eating Out Awards. And like last year, we plan to have some tester products of the shortlisted creams, lotions and balms for visitors to our stand to test, and we hope to have some sachets and take-away samples from the likes of Suti, Moa and others to distribute too.
For any bloggers and journalists out there with an interest in free from skincare and who wish to attend the Awards presentation – do get in touch, as we have some seating for press available. We should also have some press/blogger packs with products from our supportive sponsors NATorigin and Spiezia Organics too.
We look forward to seeing you! Don’t forget to click here for free tickets on us first!
