Ellison, manufacturers of the pioneering Sizzix brand, are excited to announce the latest in their series of Virtual Events and are inviting you to join in. Between March 7th-11th the Ellison team will be demonstrating the wide variety of new Sizzix launches for Quarter 2 2022 through a series of educational and interactive sessions. This fantastic opportunity gives current and prospective customers of the Sizzix brand the chance to discover more and engage with our expert team in die-cutting and beyond.
Throughout the 5-day event, attendees will have easy access to a whole host of inspiring, educational and engaging content, as well as extensive on-demand assets to be used and referred to again and again. The Sizzix design team along with special guest Eileen Hull® will host 5 live virtual sessions between them, allowing attendees to get involved and ask questions throughout the live sessions and engage with these expert presenters.
Ellison’s US Sales and Global Marketing Director Jessica Crabtree commented; “Our virtual event was initially born to overcome the lack of in person events due to the impact of the pandemic. We had an overwhelming response to our first two virtual events held in 2021, so had no option but to build upon this positivity moving into 2022. With a new quarterly format, our events continue to put our customers at the forefront, with inspiration and education at the very core. The inclusive and relaxed forum is a fantastic way for us to connect with our customers and educate on our upcoming, exciting new releases, as well as providing a great platform to meet and engage with potential new trade partners. We are so very thankful for the continued support from all our valued customers and look forward to seeing both new and familiar faces at our Q2 event in March.”
The first 3 sessions will focus on the latest die releases from Sizzix. Beginning on Monday March 7th talented designer Jessica Slack will introduce Sizzix Chapter 2, showcasing dies and embossing folders perfect for summer and beyond – including birds, butterflies, floral and nature, plus some geometric, Gatsby-inspired designs.
