Retail giants reap the benefits at ‘Meet the Buyer’ event.

Members of the Shop and Display Equipment Association had a rewarding start to their New Year with a big sales push at the highly acclaimed sdea Meet the Buyer day, sponsored by Global Display Projects.  Held annually in central London, this successful event attracts some of the UK’s leading retail groups and this year’s was no exception!  Senior retail display buyers devoted their valuable time to discuss projects with sdea members.


This fast paced, one day buying bonanza forged many new business partnerships.  Speaking after the event, the buyer from New Look said “I met some interesting people and gained some potential new suppliers for the future.”  Another satisfied delegate, from Sainsbury’s, reported, “We saw some interesting concepts and have made some contacts that we wouldn’t have had before.”


sdea Director, Lawrence Cutler, commented “Meet the Buyer gives members the opportunity to have one to one meetings with senior buyers from major high street brands where they can present their new concepts.  It’s just one of the many ways sdea brings commercial benefits to its members.”


Matt Kimber of Global Display Projects, summed up the day’s meetings as “Very valuable, an excellent way to meet the correct contacts.”  Many expressed the same feelings including Karl Lord of Advance Lighting, who said, “Good contacts, would recommend the event”.
