Meet more buyers

Success of events means GA are setting up four more

THE Giftware Association have announced four more Meet The Buyer days following their successful events with Utility and the John Lewis Partnership in 2014.

Two will be with John Lewis, the first is on Friday, March 20, while dates for two more – with Achica and a key garden centre group – to be finalized.
GA chief executive Isabel Martinson said: “We thought members might want to ponder over the holiday break which events they would like to attend. We’ll be inviting them to apply in the new year.”
GA supplier members wishing to Meet The Buyer will be asked to produce a one-page brief about their company and products, with images, which will be forwarded to the retailers to consider and select the suppliers they want to be invited along.
“What it does mean,” Isabel added, “is that all suppliers who apply will have their company profiles seen by the retailers in which they are interested.”
Priority for the John Lewis dates will be given to those who applied for the first event but missed out because it was heavily over-subscribed, while those who attended in 2014 can’t apply for this round of events – only fully paid-up GA members can participate.
