As the year begins to wind down and come to a close, we are reflecting on 2017; the challenges we faced, the successes we've had, and the wonderful people we worked with throughout the course of the year. Our success is shared between the retailers, customers, journalists, and hard-working staff who have supported us from day one through today. Our eyes are set on 2018 and beyond as we look to expand our reach in an ever-present goal to connect with more moms, cooks, and general lovers of cuisine.
Our travels saw us visit places like New York (twice), Chicago, Atlanta, and abroad to China in an effort to show the nation, and the world, who we are. Record-breaking trade shows and features in the New York Times, Museum of Modern Art, Coastal Living, Wired Magazine, and many others helped to reaffirm us that what we're doing is truly unique. We're humbled to have this privilege, and it does not go lost on us.
Our next NY Now show is in February 2018, so feel free come by and check us out in booth 3640. You can also come see us at the International Home & Housewares show in Chicago next March. Once we have received our booth number, it will be updated on our website.
In other company news, Bamboozle has been researching and testing prototypes for new items. We've continued exploring other designs, methods, and procedures for our products and how they're made. Working closely with our designers and engineers, we believe we have created a new product that will wow baking enthusiasts, everyday cooks, and professional chefs alike. Expect our announcement to come in early 2018.
Last month our catalog photographer, Krit Upra, took some gorgeous shots of our new kitchenware. A Thailand native, Krit currently resides in Rochester, New York, where he is studying fine art and bio-medical photography at RIT. If you haven't had a chance to see the photos on our social media then you can view them in the gallery below:
We hope everyone enjoys the rest of the holiday season and has a great New Year's. We'll see you in 2018.
