On Tuesday August 18 the Garden Industry Manufacturers Association (GIMA), along with buyers from the UK’s second largest garden centre chain, British Garden Centres, will be hosting a special virtual Buyer Connect event.
Representing the second virtual event in the 2020 Buyer Connect calendar, this speed networking opportunity will allow potential suppliers to ‘meet’ with buyers responsible for sourcing British Garden Centre’s gift, gardening, Christmas and furniture offering for Spring/Summer 2020/2021.
After taking advantage of the recent Wyevale dispersals, and more recently acquiring the Hillview group, British Garden Centres has grown exponentially, and now incorporates 57 stores across England and Wales, making it the second biggest garden centre chain in the UK. As such this Buyer Connect event marks an incredibly exciting opportunity for brands to showcase their latest product innovations to this highly engaged and influential group of buyers.
Each virtual ‘meeting’ will last 20 minutes and will be open to any supplier that does not currently trade with British Garden Centres.
Taking part could not be easier. To secure an appointment interested parties are invited to complete an application form and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org. An appointment is not guaranteed and is at the discretion of the buyers.
The cost for taking part in this virtual Buyer Connect event will be £60+VAT per appointment for GIMA members, and £120+VAT per appointment for non-members.
Closing Date for applications: Friday August 7 2020
