The first-ever supplier showcase at the newly refurbished Charles Alexander Distribution offices in Leicester took place on Thursday, June 29.
The event was deemed a success as seven promotional product suppliers showed off their latest and greatest products to the distributor’s staff.
During the day-long event, PF Concept, Senator Pens, CHX, Listawood, AdPads, The Sweet People and SPS all set up shop and started to put to faces to names.
The event also gave Charles Alexander Distribution’s new group director of operations, Chris Pitts, a chance to meet some of the organisation’s core suppliers.
Mr Pitts said: “It is impressive to see the level of commitment given from some of our key suppliers and the CAD Group. With the continued expansion of the group and the number of new employees we have, this event has given us first hand product and supplier training, in-house, in one full day.
“The relaxed, fun and open atmosphere gave everyone the perfect environment to fully understand each other’s products and businesses. Thank you to all that showcased for us and long may our partnerships continue.”
Richard Hope-Jones, from SPS, said: “Had a great day meeting all of the team at EB. The team loved the SPS range of products and I think we can all look forward to a successful partnership of two great companies.”
Tina Coghlan, from Senator Pens, said: “I was delighted to be asked to organise a supplier showcase for the sales team at Everything Branded. It was a well-attended and fun event, providing the perfect opportunity for key suppliers to showcase the latest industry trends to the team.
“I was particularly happy to illustrate the large portfolio of pen colours and finishes from Senator, and highlight to the team the distinct benefits of having a direct relationship with a committed manufacturer.”
