Sirius back in person in September
Sirius Buying Group has confirmed its VIP Members Trade Show will take place as a physical event this September 2021 at Forest of Arden Marriot Hotel & Country Club, Warwickshire. The AGM is scheduled for Tuesday 21st September. The Trade Show follows on Wednesday 22nd, with a Gala Dinner that evening.
Sirius MD Steve Jones said: “We are delighted to say our doors will open once again with the full support of everyone in the group to go ahead with a physical Trade Show next month. We look forward to welcoming our new and established members to come together in an informal, Covid-secure venue to explore the latest exclusive deals and series of product launches by our market leading Approved Suppliers. The group has been hugely focussed on supporting its members since before the pandemic, assisting with guidance and best practices through the pandemic along with dedicated Supplier meetings via Zoom each month becoming standard fare, so it will be great to continue these conversations safely in person.”
All Sirius members can attend the AGM on Tuesday 21st September, where they will review the previous year and current year-to-date performance, and also have the opportunity to look ahead to some of the developments still to be launched this year and into 2022. The leadership team will present “the latest trends and results so that members can make well-informed decisions for the short, medium and long term, along with a preview of what’s on offer the following day.”
On 22nd September, Approved Suppliers will showcase a series of new products for 2022 with exclusive deals for Sirius members “to help them become destination stores featuring the latest electrical appliances and kitchen furniture.”
General Manager Mark Veysey said: “We are seeing consistent growth in tailored and personalised kitchen living spaces, indicating that introducing a kitchen arm to your business can be a lucrative way to build your company’s expertise and grow your local reach. As the UK property market is set to experience strong growth in the year ahead, we can anticipate a continued focus on home improvements from homeowners, developers and local authorities, with specialist independent retailers able to capitalise on this sustained level of interest. With this in mind we stand ready to support our members wherever they are in their business evolution, so they can keep growing financially and in reputation.”
“We have all seen the importance of harnessing the latest technology to stay connected with our network of customers, and given the growing Sirius community over the past 18 months, we will continue to dedicate time to exploring how increasing your online presence can, and will, capture new customers while giving an instant overview of the level of service and expertise our members can provide.”
