Twice a year nectere holds a Partner Meeting its dealers are invited to an exclusive two-day event to discuss sales growth, opportunities, and industry updates. The January meeting, which took place on 30th – 31st January, saw nectere hold its biggest event to date.
This year nectere launched six brand new publications to dealers and Suppliers. With variations of catalogues and quarterly brochures, corporate brochures and prospecting guides the nectere team has launched its range of marketing tools, created to assist its dealers in new product categories and business growth.
Adrian Reid, Sales & Marketing Director said, “to launch not only our annual catalogue but five other publications, really sets the bar for the tools we’re giving our Dealers. To see them engaging and working with innovative new suppliers shows the transition that our industry is going through. It’s a really exciting time at nectere, with a significant number of Dealers joining us who are determined to grow their business, 2020 is set to be an extremely successful year.”
The event was focused around expanding into new product categories, with the Supplier Exhibition seeing a record number of Suppliers attend, with an entire room dedicated to Workwear, Protective Clothing, and Embroidery solutions. The three-hour session gave dealers the opportunity to engage with suppliers and learn about the new and innovative ranges that they can now offer their customer base.
Nectere also introduced a change in formalities this year, with supplier training guest speaker Paul McGee and Partner awards being the main focus of the event. Every year nectere announce their awards to Partners who are growing and utilising the model. This year saw Kings Office Supplies and Red Office win Partner of the Year in both the UK & Ireland for 2019. A new award was given to Dennons, who won the title of ‘best newcomer’ for its growth and success since choosing to partner with nectere in 2019.
