SDEA holds successful networking event for retailers and suppliers in Birmingham

Keen to broaden the expanse of its networking events to include as many regional suppliers and retailers as possible, SDEA took to Birmingham last week. A record number of members, retailers and industry professionals gathered together for what was a very enjoyable evening and highly successful networking opportunity.

Held in the centre of Birmingham at the popular venue The Lost & Found, members had the invaluable opportunity to mix business with pleasure in a truly relaxed setting. According to one SDEA member, Bob Garton, Managing Director of Glencourt Associates, “Those members and guests who did not attend missed a good event.” Another member echoed his thoughts: Paul Hurtado, Commercial Director of Bright Green Technology Ltd commented, “Great night! Really good to meet everyone. See you all again in London.”

Committed to providing members with equal opportunities to promote their business, SDEA Director, Antony Behiels is planning future networking events across the UK. He reports, “We realise that the Association cannot be totally London centric. Our members are always pushed for time and so we must hold events that are easily accessible for those who live further afield. Last year we held an event in Manchester, so thought Birmingham would be the ideal location this time. Feedback from the event has been fantastic and we look forward to holding more events like this in the future. In the meantime, the next SDEA event is the Christmas lunch, which will be held in central London on 6th December.”

SDEA is the UK’s leading industry body, it provides excellent support for members and retailers alike and has 70 years’ experience within the industry. SDEA is here to help and provides many services to the retailer including the SDEA retail display directory, website and InfoLine helpline. SDEA offers companies within the industry an excellent package of sales leads, discounts, endorsements and assistance.
