First 'Meet the Buyer' of the year

First 'Meet the Buyer' of the year

The Giftware Association's 2018 series of 'Meet the Buyer' events have got off to a flying start with a change 
of location, new buyers and eager suppliers. The event, held at The Button Factor, a stone's throw from The GA HQ, lent itself perfectly to the variety of products on display, with a comfortable atmosphere for buyers and suppliers to have meaningful conversations. There were buyers in attendance 
from Choice Marketing, The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, The Royal Horticulture Society and The Scout Shop, and they were 
not disappointed with the mix of products on display ranging 
from specialist jewellery from Eton Watches, Life Charms and SL Designs; beautiful ceramics from Jersey Pottery and Villeroy & Boch UK Ltd; as well as everything in between including toys and games from Ravensden and Tactic Games; and fashion accessories from C&C Hats. Many of the suppliers left with future contacts, but also with important feedback from the buyers about their products and added directional focus for the brands on display. Simone Rose, Meet the Buyer organiser and The GA's Business Development Manager, said of the event, “The event has been hugely successful, and has been great fun to organise, the more of these events we do, we learn a little more each time at how the interaction between buyers and suppliers work, as well as coaching new to business members with our existing skills”
