The Giftware Association (GA) is holding two Meet The Buyer events next month for members, on Thursday March 8 and Thursday March 15.
Both initiatives will be held at The Button Factory at 25 Frederick Street, in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter.
The March 8 event will feature buyers from Choice Marketing, Royal Horticulture Society, Scout Shops and Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. Products looking to be sourced (but not limited to) are homeware, gift food, nurseryware and childrensware, jigsaws & games, hat/glove sets and jewellery & watches. For GA members that wish to attend and show their wares, the cost is £150 to see all four buyers.
The March 15 event will feature buyers from The National Gallery and The Royal Mint. GA said: ‘As this will be a more targeted event, we will require [potential attendees] to complete this application form, with lucky members being selected from The National Gallery and the Royal Mint.
The cost of this event is £125 to meet one buyer or £200 to meet both. Products looking to be sourced (but again not limited to) are stationery and homeware, personalised gifting, British and heritage brands, jewellery, leathergoods & textiles and food & drink (specifically high-end, and hampers)
