CIH releases plans for 2020 Euronics Showcase
Buying group CIH has announced that the Euronics Showcase will take place at the NEC in Birmingham on Sunday and Monday 19th and 20th April this year.
A record number of companies will be supporting the event, according to CIH, exhibiting a full range of brown and white goods, small appliances and other electrical products.
CIH will be hosting a full programme of training sessions for members in its ‘Maximising Your Margin Masterclasses’. These free sessions will cover topics ranging from sales and stock management to social media and marketing.
CIH also recently announced a partnership with the Saracens Mavericks ahead of the 2020 VNSL season, and netball players from the squad will be attending the event and taking part in demonstrations and competitions with visitors.
“The Euronics Showcase is an outstanding business opportunity for CIH members,” said Stuart Cook, CEO of the buying group. “They can see the latest innovations, build great relationships with the brands they are selling and find out about all the promotions, support and training that’s available from us and the manufacturers.
“Everything about the Euronics Showcase is geared towards helping our members succeed and grow in a challenging retail environment.”
Last year the show attracted more than 1,200 visitors over its two-day presence at the NEC and Cook said: “We’re looking to build on that figure for this year’s event.”
He added that CIH also wanted to encourage retailers interested in being part of Euronics to come along and get a feel for what it’s like to be part of the buying group.
The 50-plus brands attending the 2020 Showcase include Beko, Blomberg, Leisure, Zenith; Bosch, Neff and Siemens; Whirlpool; Aga Rangemaster; CDA; Smeg; Electrolux, AEG and Zanussi; LG; Humax; Sony; Samsung; Dyson; Glen Dimplex; Hoover Candy; Montpellier; RKW; EPE; Calculus Softwear; JDM; One Agency; Cello; Vivanco; Retra; iRobot; Blue Badger; Deployment Group; Fisher & Paykel; Swift; Sebo and Numatic.
