Rexel UK announces participation in Nest Pro Tour

Published:  11 May, 2015

Rexel has announced that 100 branches across the country will take part in the ‘Nest Pro Tour’ - the UK-wide roadshow that will see a dedicated Nest training team visit partners across the country in a mission to educate and evangelise installers across the country.

Kicking off on May 19 at Newey & Eyre in Birmingham, the Nest Pro training team will visit Newey & Eyre, WF Senate, Wilts and Denman stores across the country in the fully customised Nest Pro van.

With purpose-built training materials onboard, Nest Pro training staff will provide hands-on demonstrations of both the Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Protect: Smoke + Carbon Monoxide Alarms. Participants will also have the opportunity to enroll in the Nest Pro programme during training, and learn about exclusive benefits including qualified local customer leads, marketing and sales tools, and VIP support from Nest.

Alexandra Berger, Rexel UK’s marketing director, said: “Since introducing the Nest Learning Thermostat and Nest Protect to Rexel branches last November, we have been overwhelmed with the level of interest and number of enquiries.

“With this in mind, we want to bring the Nest Pro Tour to Rexel branches and provide dedicated training and support on all things Nest for installers, as well as giving us the opportunity to educate key staff in each location. Not only will it provide a great opportunity to meet installers and gain valuable insight into their changing needs, but it also ensures they are able to make the most of this truly ground-breaking technology and the new opportunity Nest offers.”
