WQE students exhibit at Trade Fair

WQE students recently attended a Trade Fair with their Young Enterprise business.  Minal Prajapati, one of the team members, has provided an account of their experience.

The Trade Fair took place on 3rd March 2019 at Beaumont Leys Shopping Centre from 8:30am to 5pm. We had a group of five people, two came in the morning for the first shift from 8:30am to 12:30pm and the other three came for the second shift from 12:30 to 5pm.

Our business’ aim was to promote the Young Artists of Leicester by selling prints made by Art students in WQE College. We had chance to sell and gain experience on how businesses operate in the market and what challenges they have to face in order to continue with the business.

The response was quite positive as we had sold in total 9 prints, some with frames and some without frames, by making an income of £54.00. The experience was really good as we had chance to interact with real customers and put our skills into practice throughout the event.
