GA's Meet the Buyer goes on the road

The Giftware Association has taken its successful Meet the Buyer events on the road for the first time, with an exclusive and exciting event with the Tillington Group of Garden Centres

The event was held in the beautiful Low Wood Bay in the heart of the Lake District, and featured giftware suppliers presenting and showcasing their products to buyers from 10 Tillington garden centres.

It is the second time that the GA has worked with the Tillington Group, with last year’s event being held in Essex, and being such a success that the GA were invited back to present members to key industry buyers. The event kept the usual formula, with all suppliers getting important one-on-one time with the buyers. The event was by application only and the successful attendees were carefully selected by the various Tillington buyers ahead of event.

Gillian Munro from Otter Nurseries who helped with the organisation of the event said: 'It was a great success and the feedback was positive from the Tillington buyers and suppliers. The proof will be in the scale of new orders and accounts.'
