Crossville Launches Virtually Crossville

Posted on 05 May 2020 by cradmin3

Crossville, Inc. has launched Virtually Crossville, an online experience offering on-demand content created and curated to help fill the void left by this year’s canceled industry trade shows.

“By the time shows were canceled, our trade show team was all packed up and ready to ship many parts of our spring booths. Msg2Mkt – our public relationship firm – saw a great opportunity in photographing the components and bringing a branded event experience to customers online,” explained Lindsey Waldrep, VP of marketing for Crossville.

The idea of Virtually Crossville grew to include other elements to replicate the valuable content and engagement that in-person conferences and expos nurture.

Waldren continued, “We rounded out Virtually Crossville with lots of trends information and inspiration, as well as exclusive educational sessions targeted for distributors, retailers, and designers. We even include items that participants can download and a giveaway opportunity for those who want to submit unique pattern designs.”

The Virtually Crossville experience is comprised of four distinct modules:
– Virtual booth tours
– Trends insights
– Education sessions
– Show & Share opportunities
