INTRODUCTION August is our busiest show as it covers the important promotional period’s - mid-season sales, Black Friday, Christmas and the vital January sale. Housewares trading has been patchy to say the least – one week we are up, the next week we are down. Many things have affected this – an early Easter, poor weather until recently and of course the EU referendum. We hear daily of the problems that will ensue the result of the referendum. However, there are many long term benefits. It is a case of your glass being full or half empty. We cannot change the result but we must be positive and consider the glass to be half full. Brexit has not affected this show as far as prices are concerned - we negotiated the majority pre-Brexit. Currency issues will remain for a period and suppliers who are buying dollars will be increasing prices until the dollar stabilises. So now is the time for you to come along and benefit from the many offers we have available. We have negotiated extra OATS show discounts from even more suppliers – a list can be found on page 3 & 4 - these discounts can really boost your margins. So remember to count your basic stocks before you attend the show, you will be amazed at the extra margin you can make. We know we do have members in close proximity to each other, so we have ensured that we have plenty of Drive Line offers, Christmas Cracker offers and Black Friday offers for everyone. We also have plenty of new products and new suppliers. Demonstrations will be carried out throughout the show, with another exciting feature – the Nespresso Café area in tandem with Groupe Seb. Nespresso will have two coffee ambassadors at the show. We know that this is a growth area and we need to really use and learn from this facility. Finally, we are using this show to launch LAV glassware through AIS Trading. The range consists of on trend products at better than ever prices. Please refer to page 93 for full details. Please read this bulletin through and ensure that you allow enough time at the show to benefit from all that we have to offer. We look forward to seeing you.
