A great chance for British suppliers to hold one-to-one meetings with international trade buyers seeking new products from the UK!
Gardenex holds regular Meet-the-Buyers events at our offices in Brasted, near Sevenoaks, Kent. These provide an invaluable and cost-effective opportunity for UK-based suppliers to have one-to-one meetings with international trade buyers. Our speed-dating format allows UK suppliers the chance to promote their products and services in 25 minute meeting slots, and start the foundations for an excellent working partnership. Buyers taking part include garden centre retailers, importers/distributors/wholesalers, mail-order and online stores from Europe and occasionally further afield.
Our next event will be held on Thursday, 8 November 2018 at our offices in Brasted, near Sevenoaks, Kent. The garden buyer taking part on this occasion is from a Belgian garden business which includes two garden centres, the largest being 25,000m2 with an annual turnover of €45 million, and a recently acquired online business. We also have buyers from the pet sector taking part. If you are a UK-based pet product supplier and would like details of the pet buyers, please click here to request more information.
UK garden suppliers – don’t miss out on the chance to take part! To apply, please take a look at the buyer’s profile and product requirements and then complete and submit the application form by the deadline of 22 October.
After the deadline we will send to the buyer the list of applicants with brief product descriptions and links to websites so that she can select which she would like to meet. This ensures that the meetings are as useful and productive as possible. We will then contact you to confirm your meeting arrangements.
We have attended a number of these events and have always found them to be a very useful tool for our export market. In general they are very informative and have repaid the time, effort and expense many times over.
- A happy supplier!
