BHETA and Stax meet the buyer event

Bheta Logo

BHETA is to host a Meet the Buyer event with Stax Trade Centres on Thursday 13 October 2022 at the Worsley Park Marriott Hotel, Manchester. This speed networking event allows potential suppliers to meet with a key garden, home improvement and DIY distributor, in timed 20-minute appointments.

Stax is keen to engage with suppliers in the following categories: Car Care, Housewares, Christmas, Paint, Garden Furniture, Garden Sundries, Doors, Ladders, Plumbing, K.D Furniture, Garden Tools, Garden Chemicals, Building Materials, Appliances, Electrical, Lighting & Batteries, Household Chemicals, Plastics, Cleaning Materials, Hand Tools, Power Tools, Garden Power, Workwear, Hardware, Ironmongery, BBQs, DIY, Interior Decorating, Bird and Pet Care.

Buyers representing these product categories will all be in attendance and suppliers are encouraged to focus on product features and benefits, together with cost price proposals. Suppliers should also note that Stax will give preference to those who come prepared with a range of products rather than just single items. Sustainable credentials are key for future domestic markets and branded and own label products are always of significant interest. Stax will not consider any suppliers or products on a trial basis, in line with its ‘one in; one out’ policy.

The price of taking part BHETA’s Stax MTB event is £70 plus VAT per appointment for BHETA members and £149 plus VAT per appointment for non-members at their first such BHETA event. Non-members who have attended a previous BHETA Meet the Buyer event will be charged £199 plus VAT. The closing date for applications is 30 September 2022 and payment by non-members must be received by 6 October 2022.

Chief Operating Officer of BHETA, Will Jones said, “This is a really good opportunity for suppliers not already working with Stax. As ever, we expect a big turnout, so I advise booking as soon as possible.”
