IPS _ QBB Program Š ItÕs all in the Wall!

Welcome to the IPS _ QBB (Irish Party Supplies _ Qualatex Balloon Boutique)

Irish Party Supplies are delighted to announce the launch of a joint Program with Qualatex Europe. This Program is called IPS QBB (Irish Party Supplies Qualatex Balloon Boutique).

QBB is a proven system of products, training, display, merchandising and POS (Point of Sale). It has achieved great success in the UK and is now available to select retailers in Ireland through Irish Party Supplies.

Maximize your balloon sales by offering your customers a professional in-store balloon bouquet service. We have different retail packages available depending on how you plan to develop and invest in your balloon business.

Irish Party Supplies have only 10 of these to install in Ireland this year. We feel that you are ideally placed to qualify for one of these.

What is IPS QBB?

In its simplest form, this is a leap from how you are currently doing balloons to a tried and tested format to achieve higher sales for you and your business. This is done through a process of Training, Displaying, Merchandising and Promoting your balloon products and decor skills.

How does it work?

The IPS QBB is designed for new and existing stores looking to expand their balloon business and have space available to dedicate exclusively to Qualatex balloons and party products. There are various packages available depending on what space you have in store. We work closely with you through a step-by-step process rolled out as follows;

  1. Preparation: We record how you are currently doing balloons in your business. We take pics of your store and your current display and POS (if any). If you have specific sales figures for balloons this is a great help as it allows you to measure the results of the IPS QBB by comparison.
  2. Training: IPS QBB provides initial and ongoing training specific to this program. You will learn how to convert your investment into sales and repeat business.
  3. Product Purchase: We will send you everything you need to achieve the highly effective product display area in your store. See the images of the Planogram included here to see how your balloon area will look in completion.
  4. POS Installation: We will be there on the day to help you with the installation and merchandising of your products, POS (Point of Sale) including Portfolio, Header Cards, Posters and Banners.
  5. Promotion: Locally and on Social Media etc.
  6. Measurement: We will keep in regular contact with you to measure the growth in your sales figures.
  7. Ongoing Support and continued training

Where has it worked already?

Qualatex have been rolling this out in the UK for the past two years. The initial 20 pilot sites were so successful that demand quickly grew from other retailers.

In short, there are plenty of reference sites who can attest to the amazing difference the QBB has made to their business. Here are just a few...

  1. The Card Gallery Hallmark Grafton Street, Dublin 2
  2. Party Mad, Celbridge, Co Kildare
  3. Party Mad, Lucan, Co Dublin

What do I need to qualify?

This program is heavily subsidized by Qualatex and Irish Party Supplies. This means that we are investing in you and your business for mutual long term benefit. In short, this is a win-win! This investment, however, comes with certain conditions and responsibilities. We are committed to your success and we require a commitment in return. To be considered for the IPS QBB you need to adhere to these simple conditions:

  • Allocate a minimum of approximately 8FT of display wall dedicated to Qualatex products in a position agreed with Irish Party Supplies.
  • Only Qualatex products will be displayed below the Qualatex header boards.
  • Ensure that the Retail Wall is accessible for customers to serve themselves at all times.
  • Reorder regularly to ensure all Qualatex products are fully presented on the wall every day.
  • Promote Qualatex products by inflating at least 2 bouquets of balloons in the store according to the Qualatex portfolio. These bouquets should be well maintained at all times.
  • Support all seasonal campaigns by stocking the range of products included in the portfolio and use marketing materials supplied.
  • Provide monthly sales figures to the distributor to assess the progress of Qualatex products. These figures are extremely important to Qualatex to adapt the product offerings to end users.
  • Make staff available to participate in the training and merchandising of the wall.

How much will it cost me?

The cost of this will depend on the size of area available in your store. But remember, the larger the area the greater the return. Also, the discounts and benefits with your first order are greater the more space you allocate to IPS QBB. The greater your investment the greater your return!
