Oliver Bonas ‘Exclusive’ Opportunity For Suppliers

In a real ‘scoop’ for The Giftware Association, members are being offered the opportunity to showcase their products to a team of buyers – to include the head buyer of prestigious multiple retailer Oliver Bonas– at a Meet The Buyer event on Thursday October 24.

The retailer will be looking for products in five categories: branded gifts; cosmetics/wellness; novelty products; gardenware and confectionery.

The curated event will take place at The Giftware Association’s offices in Birmingham, with members invited to submit photos of either their products or their catalogues for review by the Oliver Bonas buyers.

The companies whose products are selected will then be invited to attend the Meet The Buyers day, where they will be able to have 20 minutes of quality time with a member of the Oliver Bonas buying team, enabling them to discuss their products in more detail. Visit www.ga-uk.org
