Sambro announces second trade show event

Published on: 16th April 2014

This year’s trade show will take place at the Bury Headquarters on the 7th and 8th May from 9am until late.

Following the phenomenal response to 2013’s inaugural trade event, the company has made it a key fixture on its trade calendar and hopes to make it a must-visit for buyers throughout the year. There is another event also planned for later in the year.

This second event will play host to 11 distributors as well as Sambro, which will showcase its lines in its dedicated showrooms which have been extended to accommodate more visitors and further lines.

Distributors and wholesalers at the event include Direct Worldwide, Grant & Bowman, Heathside Trading, Hermanex, Ostoy, Trading House, Singleton, A.G Agencies, Ultimate Products and Rayburn Trading. All companies will showcase promotional opportunities for invited buyers in a one-stop shop over the two-day event. Product lines available will include toys, luggage, giftware, arts and crafts, stationery, bags and action games and will include many popular licensed ranges.

Nikki Samuels at Sambro commented: “We were blown away by the response to last year’s trade event and received great feedback from not only the distributors who took showroom space but also the buyers in attendance. The calibre of buyers at the event was spectacular and we look forward to welcoming them back again.”

The May event will be bigger than last year’s show and will feature two dedicated marquees in the grounds of Sambro HQ as well as 11 showrooms.

Nikki continued: “We really would encourage buyers to attend. As we are situated in Bury we have great links to the motorway, rail and airport and people wanting to attend both days can take advantage of special rates we have negotiated with the Village Hotel close-by.”
