Buyers from across a host of TK Maxx categories – kitchenware, dining & tabletop, cookshop, utility, laundry & cleaning and bathroom accessories – will attend a BHETA retail networking event at the end of the month.
The upcoming British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) Meet the Buyer retail networking day takes place January 30 at the Mercure Hotel, London Watford, which is on the A41 Watford bypass.
The TK Maxx team is looking for great deals to start the year and is urging suppliers to concentrate on the features and benefits of key products. TK Maxx is keen to see ideas from across the buying categories, including picnic, BBQ and barware, reusable and recyclable and small electrical products, as well as anything to do with food preparation, cooking and serving, laundry, cleaning, storage and bathroom.
Companies participating in the event will be allocated a 20-minute appointment time and a maximum of two people from each supplier allowed.
BHETA’s Chief Operating Officer, Will Jones says: “We are delighted to be providing members with a great opportunity to schedule face to face meetings with TK Maxx. It has a growing share of the housewares sector, and it prides itself on being an ‘easy to deal with’ business partner. Potential suppliers should note that TK Maxx will collect everything and doesn’t have set terms, so the agreed price is the price. It is also open to annual deals in addition to spot buys.
“This event is sure to attract a big response and there will be a limit to the number of people that can be accommodated on the day. Interested participants are therefore urged to make themselves known to Helen Farnell in BHETA Member Services team as soon as possible, so that we can confirm arrangements.”
The BHETA TK Maxx Meet the Buyer event is open to members and non-members and the cost of attendance starts at £99 plus VAT for members.
Application forms can be found on the BHETA website www.bheta.co.uk or by contacting Helen Farnell in the BHETA member services team. Helen can be contacted at BHETA on 0121 237 1130 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
