After the Giftware Associations hugely successful ‘Meet the Buyer’ event with the Tillington Group of garden centres, they have decided to create their own ‘Meet the Buyer festival’ in their home town of Birmingham. The event, which has now reached maximum capacity for suppliers, is still on the lookout for buyers to attend and make the event even more successful and varied for the suppliers and for potential buyers to see some fantastic products from companies they may have overlooked at trade shows.
Simone Rose, Business Development Manager for ‘The Giftware Association’ said. “Our last event was brilliant, we were over whelmed by the response we got from people wanting to attend and we struggled as we only had limited spaces. But ‘The Tillington Group of Garden Centre’s were very helpful in hosting us at one of their annual meetings and everyone who attended the event received an order from the buyers present” She continues the success story “ We wanted to re-create this but on a larger scale and in our home town, again the response was fantastic and we have had to unfortunately let people down that we are oversubscribed, but it shows to us, that people are hungry for these types of events, so we will definitely be hosting more of them in the future and before the year is out”
