Sirius Buying Group, one of the UK’s major buying groups in the electrical appliance and kitchen retail industry, has announced its annual trade conference will take place on 17th May 2023, at the Concorde Conference Centre in Manchester. Sirius says its conference is designed to provide the independent retailer with promotions to increase margins, and appliance manufacturers with new business opportunities as they come together and improve their respective business models and future development plans.
Sirius Members will benefit from offers from approved suppliers to drive healthy sales throughout 2023 onwards, as well as tailored one-to-one business support from the team at Sirius. After a day of networking and planning, members can attend the Gala Awards Dinner.
Steve Jones, MD at Sirius, said: “We are looking forward to another great conference which will deliver an important opportunity for our members and suppliers to meet together and further develop their business and personal relationships. As the outlook for 2023 remains cautious, it is even more vital that we take advantage of key occasions like our conference to learn from each other and explore new market avenues for business. Our high-profile pool of approved suppliers includes global brands as well as leading specialists in distribution, finance and systems management so Sirius members can benefit from the very best deals to suit their needs both in the stockroom and in their showrooms. The electrical retail sector is always ripe for reinvention, and I believe that our suppliers’ latest product developments will appeal to consumers at all price points such as energy-efficient appliances, which are intuitive and beautifully integrated into the kitchen and utility zones.”
