Jewson: scaling the heights in Harrogate.

Jewson event focuses on delivering sales growth

Published:  02 February, 2012

HARROGATE: Jewson's Internal Build Exhibition & Suppliers' Conference at the Harrogate International Centre yesterday attracted over 100 suppliers. 

The annual event enables the national merchant to strengthen relations with key contacts and lets suppliers show their latest products to over 1000 branch managers, senior managers and sales executives.

Its conference theme concentrated on the development of sales growth.

The exhibition, zoned by product type, showcased the latest innovations, including a wide range of sustainable solutions, across both lightside and heavyside, kitchen, bathroom and plumbing and renewable technologies.

The exhibition additionally provided suppliers with a valuable opportunity to speak face-to-face with Jewson branch managers and sales executives away from the day-to-day commercial pressures, "allowing for more tactical discussions to take place", said a company spokesperson.
