• Office Club 2018 Conference marked a success

        • Office Club dealers and suppliers met for the group’s annual conference in Stratford-upon-Avon for a productive and inspirational couple of days.

          The exhibition on Saturday morning maintained its reputation as being well-supported and one where dealers are prepared to place orders on the day. 

          After the exhibition members were presented with an insight of the global marketplace from CEO of BPGI, Barrie Hayes, followed by an update of Office Club activity from company CEO Toby Robins and representatives of the various departments. Before the day finished for the evening dealers were later given a choice of three seminar areas to attend with a choice of commercial, retail or online depending on which area of expertise they were looking for support in.

          The weekend concluded with a Members Dinner and presentation of the 2017/18 awards, the winners of which were:

          Retail Member of the Year – Delta Pi

          Commercial Member of the Year – Solcrown Business Supplies

          Online Member of the Year – Don Ruffles

          Supplier of the Year – Antalis

          Supplier Contact of the Year – James Faulkner, Eco Eco

          Michael Knight, Managing Director, Ruffles said, “we are extremely proud of our online member of the year award following a fantastic 38% sales and margin growth over the past 12 months. The support we have received from the Office Club team has been invaluable in providing opportunities with approved suppliers and their extensive marketing activity has enabled us to focus on our business and online strengths.  A thoroughly enjoyable weekend.”

          Stephen Desay, Business Development Manager, Tradesupply, first time attendee added, “we had a very productive weekend and found it very beneficial in really helping us to develop current relationships and also build new ones. Looking forward to next year already.”
