Bigger and better Unimer event

Unimer have confirmed the dates for their annual flagship event – the Unimer Day 2008 and unveiled the new, further improved format.

Bigger and better Unimer event

The event will again take place at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, South Wales, this year on July 16-17. However, a number of changes will be put in place this year, following an extensive evaluation of previous years events. For 2008 the plan is to make the event even bigger and better with more business opportunities than in the past.

The changes include an extended trade exhibition. This will comprise a full-day trade exhibition for merchants to meet with suppliers who are showcasing their company offerings, launch new products, and provide special offers on the day. Plus, a ‘Meet the Merchants’ session will offer suppliers the opportunity to meet the merchants of their choice one-to-one.

Unimer md Howard Grant said: “The ultimate aim for Unimer is to provide exceptional business value to all our merchant members and suppliers, which is why we have redeveloped the Unimer Day. We have listened to our members and taken into consideration the feedback we have had. The Unimer Day will now comprise a full day of business opportunities for suppliers and merchants alike.

“We do also appreciate that it’s not all about business, which is why we are making full use of the superb facilities at the Celtic Manor. Merchants and supplier who wish to stay on the day after the trade exhibition and gala dinner, can take part in golf, clay pigeon shooting and off-road driving.”
