BHETA holds MTB with Dunelm

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association is set to host another Meet The Buyer day, this time with retail partner Dunelm

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) is to host another in its successful series of Meet The Buyer days with yet another new retail partner in the form of home décor retailer, Dunelm. The event will take place on Wednesday 30th November. 

Dunelm is particularly looking to engage with new or existing suppliers who are able to:
1. Demonstrate new and innovative products
2. Offer strong promotional activity for immediate consideration.

Suppliers are encouraged to visit one of the following stores to identify opportunities - Nottingham, Milton Keynes, Sheffield, Redditch, Weston-Super-Mare and Rustington. It is also suggested that they review the Dunelm website. 

The brief is aimed at all sizes of supplier from large players to smaller companies with limited resources, but a great idea or product. There will be senior and /or assistant buyer representation from all the core categories on the day. 

Participating suppliers will be allocated a twenty minute appointment with the relevant buyers. A maximum of two people from each company will be allowed and suppliers are urged to use the time to simply focus on their products. BHETA director, Will Jones explains, “This is a unique opportunity for existing and potential suppliers and as such, is sure to attract a big response. There will also be a limit to the number of people that can be accommodated on the day. 
“We will of course do our upmost to allocate times to all interested members but it may be necessary to select participants by lottery with a view to securing a further event to accommodate the unsuccessful parties as early as possible.

“This event provides a valuable chance for all companies large or small to meet and talk to a knowledgeable and receptive team hungry for new ideas and products. We are delighted to be working with Dunelm.”
