BHETA to hold retailer networking webinar with The Very Group

The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) has announced that it will be holding a retailer networking webinar in partnership with The Very Group. The event will take place 30 September at 10.30 am. Speakers include Lauren Christensen, Head of Homewares and Terence Conchie, Home Improvement Category Manager.

In addition to an overview of the company’s history and developments over the last eighteen months, the focus will be on the opportunities for suppliers in previously immature online markets such as Decorative Home (wallpaper, paint and tiling), DIY tools, kitchens and bathrooms; as well as homewares.  The emphasis will be on what Very customers search for most and how the online retailer helps them achieve ‘dream interiors.’

This is a BHETA member-only event, but non-members supplying product in the gardening, DIY, housewares and small electrical appliances sectors who would like to attend can contact Keeley Vernon on 07398 840418, or Seema Grantham on 07946 078566.

Will Jones, Chief Operating Officer, said: “I’m delighted that BHETA can secure opportunities for members to network with key retailers like The Very Group.  It will be fascinating to learn more about just how much Very has grown in sales of home and garden and home enhancement products.”
