Five buyers of garden and leisure products will be at the latest ‘Meet the Buyer’ events being staged by the Gardenex export federation on 27 March 2014 at Lea Marston Hotel, Sutton Coldfield.
The buying event will run alongside a free workshop, covering the European market. The workshop is targeted at garden-related companies looking to expand sales in Europe.
The event will involve buyers from Finland, The Netherlands, Slovenia and Spain, who will take part in one-to-one business-creating meetings with the attending UK suppliers.
The overseas buyers travelling to the UK to meet with British suppliers will be:
• Tammer-Tukku Oy, a Finnish importer and wholesaler of non-consumer goods, including practical and decorative garden products and outdoor leisure items. Two buyers from the company will be in attendance.
• De Wiltfang/Larix Gardenware, a Dutch specialist garden mail-order catalogue that supplies hobby gardeners and professionals.
• SEMENARNA Ljubljana/Kalia, a Slovenian garden centre chain of 25 stores plus wholesaler.
• Digebis, a Spanish importer and distributor that supplies garden centres, florists, independent hardware stores, DIY centres, gift and decoration stores and toy shops.
Thanks to the UKTI funding, places at the workshop can be offered free of charge.
