Tips for attending an Interior Design trade only exhibition or show.

    

1 Your badge will identify you clearly at Trade only show and can be scanned by exhibitors to post you price lists and brochures later.
2 The exhibitors are in the main suppliers, producers or wholesalers showcasing their new ranges to retailers and buyers who may offer them sizeable orders and contracts.

Know the difference between a trade supplier, a wholesaler and a retailer is important. Be careful to explain the type of buyer you are and size of order you may be in a position to place.

3 If interested in purchasing the products ask:
  • The minimum first order requirement (check delivery costs you will need to pay).
  • The minimum carriage paid order CPO. (Delivery free and inclusive). Often for larger orders only. 
  • Check if CPO is large if they do a delivery charge for smaller orders.
  • Whether they are prepared to deliver direct to your customers.  Some will not and are only organised to deliver large quantities by articulated lorry. Be sure of access to small residential streets.
4 Be honest about your buying power. Some will not trade with Designers and regard us as retail buyers not trade. Some will be happy to trade with you on individual/one off orders. Options for future business will be regarded favourably.  Trade prices on first orders will vary according to supplier. 
5 Don't expect to find them on the net. Some wholesalers will not have a web site to display goods or products. They may have catalogues which they may not make available to small buyers (too expensive).  They may specialise in selling to buyers and retailers.
6 Some wholesalers will sell to you on one off basis from product ranges that you see at the show or buy one off with the option to create other orders.
7 Photography is sometimes not permitted. Some of the product lines you will see are unique and new designs are keenly guarded against copyright theft. They will not appear in catalogues for this reason.  See www.acid.uk.com Anti copying in design for more details.
8 Size of the companies vary - there are always new companies exhibiting at the NEC for the first time. Some are smaller family run businesses.
9 Look out for signs giving details of minimum orders by container load or pallet.  
10 You will need 2 days to get around all the halls. Go early, there is lots to see.  Be prepared for a long walk around the 15 halls of exhibitors!
