My Pinkie Promise, Dundee-based Event Management & Marketing Consultancy was very proud to meet HRH Prince Charles during the week-long Showcase event which they ran for An Comunn Gaidhealach during the Royal National Mod in Caithness from 11 - 15 October 2010.
The Showcase is an exhibition where organisations promote Gaelic-related & local products or services to Mod visitors, competitors and local people.
Owner of My Pinkie Promise, Alison Henderson said "We ran a week-long exhibition, several events to showcase the local Food & Drink which comes from Caithness & Sutherland as part of Scotland's Year of Food & Drink, and topped the event off by meeting HRH Prince Charles, who, as the Duke of Rothesay, has strong links with the local area. He presented gold medals to 2 of the winning competitors, and visited our Showcase and talked to the organisations during the morning"
As the first of a three year contract to run the Showcase, this year's exhibition received very good feedback from visitors & exhibitors alike. Next year, My Pinkie Promise will take the Showcase to Stornoway, and is on the look-out for businesses who are interested in taking part and promoting their organisations to nearly 10,000 visitors.
The Mod is a family orientated event which draws visitors and competitors from a wide cross-section of the Gaelic community. Special congratulations go to Dundee Gaelic Musical Association who will be defending the Choral Area Trophy which they won in Caithness.
