A&G’s ‘speed dating’ success at Unimer Day

Published:  12 July, 2011

CARDIFF: Acheson & Glover (A&G), a leading supplier of premium quality hard landscaping, achieved several high quality leads from Unimer Day. The event took place on 6 July at Celtic Manor and A&G, a new member, exhibited for the first time. The day is an opportunity to network and generate new business.

Commercial director Stuart Cook explains: “Unimer’s ‘Meet the Merchants’ opportunity was like a speed dating session where you had the chance to meet a shortlist of potential customers for 20 minutes each. It worked really well for us and it was a successful end to the day with lots of very high quality leads to follow up. If all speed dating is like this I’m sorry I’ve not done it before. We will be definitely signing up for next year.”
