Sirius Buying Group, one of the UK’s leading buying groups in the electrical appliance and kitchen retail sector is excited to announce the date of its 2023 UK Trade Show this autumn, where it will present the latest product deals and market intelligence for 2024-5.
As part of Sirius’ progression, it is excited to announce the latest major development for its annual Trade Show will now take place over two days instead of the usual one-day event, giving new and existing members even more time to take advantage of the exclusive offers and peer-to-peer networking from Approved Suppliers to the group.
Taking place at Marshall Arena, the home of the MK Dons in Milton Keynes on Sunday 1st and Monday 2nd October 2023, this prime location is centrally located between Birmingham and London, and Sirius is offering one free night’s stay at the DoubleTree Hilton hotel located on site for each member company. Steve Jones, Managing Director at Sirius Buying Group, says, “The Marshall Arena is one of the largest purpose-built arenas in the UK equipped with 2,500m². Providing the perfect space for us to hold our 2023 Trade Show, we get to bring all our members and suppliers together under one roof to continue to collaborate and grow relationships and collaboration, which right now in the current climate, is more important than ever! Suppliers will be out in force supporting with exclusive offers right in time for peak season so that our members can take advantage and maximise profitability. Our Autumn Trade Show is designed to be an exploration of the latest products and systems as well as unique marketing solutions for independent retailers. Our strength as a community lies in sharing information at every level and I am delighted by the growth mindset and the ripple effect of positive momentum as we lean into new opportunities and keep developing our businesses together.”
This year’s UK Trade Show serves as a place to facilitate open discussion and creative ideas with likeminded business owners. Head of Operations, Mark Veysey at Sirius Buying Group explains “The appliances and kitchen living sector are evolving with state-of-the-art smart tech and energy-efficient solutions and so our UK trade show is a great opportunity for our members every year to meet the demands of the new build and replacement market. According to Statista, the overall sector is set to grow to over $900 billion in value by 2028, and so by partnering with leading global brands like Whirlpool Group, Haier and BSH Appliances, as well as established UK suppliers, we’re helping our members develop long-lasting connections and build product portfolios that best serve their communities.”
Marion Morton, Head of Commercial at Sirius says “As more consumers gravitate towards areas in their life they can control, our suppliers and members are in the best position to react quickly and capture new customers seeking out premium household appliances with self-serving features. We know that the cost of living continues to dictate the sales conversation, so we want to ensure our members are equipped with the latest promotions and exclusive deals so they can quickly convert leads into sales.”
In addition to facilitating good business, the Sirius Trade Show will also be supporting Bristol-based charity, the Billie Elizabeth Wood Trust, which fundraise for research in subarachnoid haemorrhage. Joe Howes, Data and Marketing Manager at Sirius Buying Group says, “We are proud to raise awareness about this brain condition, which affects a significant number of otherwise healthy people every year and join with our approved member Caple in championing this worthy cause on a national stage. We are always humbled by the generosity of the entire group who kindly raised £9,000 at our Conference last May for the Disaster Emergency Committee’s Syria-Turkey Appeal. We are so proud that our people continue to see the importance in giving back and are excited to see what we’re able to raise at our autumn event.”
