We look forward to the British Acupuncture Council’s Conference every year! This year’s theme was ‘Extraordinary Meridians’ which celebrates how practitioners are linked through their love, understanding and respect for the acupuncture meridians that connect us all.
Attending the conference is a great excuse to step away from our desks, to meet many passionate acupuncturists and to put lots of faces to names. As well as exhibiting our products, the conference is also a great opportunity to meet so many customers – old and new.
For the second year running, we were the proud sponsors of the conference! As many of you know, we have a great working relationship with the BAcC and are working together to benefit their members and the industry as a whole.
As part of our sponsorship, we had lots of free goodies for the conference attendees! The celebrate the Extraordinary Meridians theme, we designed a free Meridians Poster for all delegates. The A2 double-sided poster looks great displayed in clinics and depicts all the body meridians.
As well as a free poster, we also gave away free ‘Keep Calm and Have Acupuncture’ hessian shopper bags. The reusable bags are extremely durable, strong and have a low ecological footprint. They also look great and can promote the acupuncture industry! If you were unable to attend the conference this year but would like to purchase a poster or bag, please visit our online shop.
As well as showcasing our products, we also ran an Animals Asia raffle this year! We started working with Animals Asia in 2018 and introduced the ‘Healing without Harm’ campaign to promote herbal medicine. We have since been donating a percentage of all orders to Animals Asia and we thought a raffle was a great way to raise money and awareness!
Tickets were £1 and participants had the chance to win one of 4 prizes, including a Phoenix TDP Bio Heat Lamp and a Phoenix Hamper full of goodies. We raised over £100 and all proceeds go directly to Animals Asia!
After another successful conference, we are already planning next year’s event! The British Acupuncture Council will be celebrating their 25th anniversary in 2020 so the next conference is set to be the best one yet! We have devised a survey for you to let us know what you would like to see from Phoenix. You can take the survey here.
