Template: Sticky

This is a sticky post.

There are a few things to verify:

  • The sticky post should be distinctly recognizable in some way in comparison to normal posts. You can style the .sticky class if you are using the post_class() function to generate your post classes, which is a best practice.
  • They should show at the very top of the blog index page, even though they could be several posts back chronologically.
  • They should still show up again in their chronologically correct postion in time, but without the sticky indicator.
  • If you have a plugin or widget that lists popular posts or comments, make sure that this sticky post is not always at the top of those lists unless it really is popular.

We highly miss the personal contact to our customers, but are happy to see that there are more and more virtual event opportunities that we can take part in. Apart from that, we are operating regularly out of our Vancouver, BC, base and are always available to support online or via phone!

Virtual Toronto Gift + Home Market

Our next upcoming virtual event participation will be at the CanGift Toronto Gift+Home Market which will take place from February 22 – 25, 2021. Building on the success of the first virtual show last summer, this event introduces the CanGift 365 online marketplace and will give plenty of new virtual opportunities to all participants like online order taking, real-time reporting tools and virtual chats.

Vancouver, BC September 28, 2020

Today, we want to introduce SHOP. A digital shopping assistant that brings together the best features to make it easy for customers to speed through checkout, track their order and shipment details, and rediscover brands they love.

We enabled shop for all our brands to make online shopping more personal and convenient for our customers.

Guaranteed peace of mind and always up to date

From product discovery to package delivery, Shop takes care of the little extras our shoppers need. Once they have download Shop, Shop provides customized product recommendations. These recommendations all come from brands that they’ve already shown an interest in, either by purchasing a product from their Shopify store or by following their profiles in the app.

In contrast to product recommendations on other online stores, which offer a feed of products from brands you don’t know, brands you don’t care about (most these platforms are driven by advertising) Shop, does not include any ads!

One way, Shop helps not just the customers but also the local business is by showing if businesses offer in-store or curbside pickup. Now, with Shop everyone can find businesses in their area and opt for local pickup in case they’d rather not wait for delivery.

Shop gives updates on everything ordered, across all online stores, from a single location. Shop syncs emails to track orders so no one needs to fumble around in their inbox looking for order numbers or tracking info.

Download “shop” now and browse a feed of recommended products, learn more about each brand, and make purchases using the one-click Shop Pay checkout process.


Enjoy your shopping trip with SHOP

VIRTUAL TORONTO SHOW (RETAILERS ONLY)

Vancouver, BC, September 04, 2020

In these ever changing times, there is no business as usual.
Isolated at home due to the Coronavirus pandemic, with only few shops open and nearly no public places and events to go to, people have been spending more time online to shop, order food or attend leisure activities. For that reason many e-commerce sectors are flourishing and manifold events are turned into online versions with digital platforms and alternative ways to connect. The Toronto Gift + Home Market is  a great example for this trend. The Canadian Gift Association just announced its first-ever Virtual Market running from September 14-17, 2020 – an event for retailers only.

ADEPT24 is excited to be a part of this virtual trade show with its three brands MyBrilliantStar, HUSS Incense and TROIKA Canada. The Toronto gift fair has always been a great platform for retailers and amazing businesses to connect and build unique partnerships. We are thrilled to continue building incredible relationships just as we did at the in-person shows in the last years. The virtual platform gives everyone the opportunity to be informed about new trends and products and save so much time in doing so.

Check out our virtual booth at the Toronto gift show as a retailer! We are excited to meet you online, you can access our product brochures and catalogues, but also contact us any time via phone, email or our social media channels. Register as a buyer here.
Our online booth will be accessible even if the live event ended in September, all the way until the end of October!

We are so looking forward to meeting you at our virtual Toronto booth! Stay safe and see you.

Your ADEPT24 Team.

In the midst of moving times for all of us, we hope you all made it through the past unsettling months safe and sound. We can now announce that we are back to business, adapting to the current circumstances.

The trade fair in Toronto, initially scheduled to take place in August, will this year take place in an online version due to Covid-19. The Atlanta show was postponed and is taking place from August 13th-18th, 2020. This year, we won’t be physically present in Atlanta, however, our showroom will be open and you can contact us at any time for questions or more information on our brands and products.
