Trusted by the industry’s best companies


  • Over the last few years I’ve worked closely with Newtrade on a number of specific projects for my clients, involving print, digital and video elements. They are always collaborative and good to work with, but most importantly of all really strive to understand what the client wants to get out of each activity, and deliver accordingly. The biggest gain for us is that these projects with Newtrade have provided a gateway to speak directly to retailers and learn from the valuable insight gained.
