Builders merchant clearing house Unimer plc saw 350 delegates attend their annual trade show and networking event earlier this month.
Suzanne Millward, Marketing Manager at Unimer, says: “The Unimer Day has gone from strength to strength, and this is reflected by the tremendous number of suppliers and merchant delegates attending this year. I am pleased to say that the positive comments we have had so far, have exceeded our expectations”.
In fact, one very pleased supplier, Eliza Tinsley, sold their entire display stock from their stand and went home with an empty van!
The event included a ‘Meet the Merchants’ session which comprises two hours of 15-minute pre-booked appointments, plus a gala dinner and a golf event and driving challenges the following day.
During the dinner, Howard Grant, managing director of Unimer plc, took the opportunity to thank all members and suppliers for their support over the year despite the challenging market conditions.
He also briefly touched upon how Unimer intends to sustain its growth and operational performance, with the continuous investment in people and streamlining of business processes to ensure they are capable of driving the business forward to meet the challenges of the evolving business environment and demands.
Unimer Day 2010 will take place on the 7-8 July.
