Welcome to bira direct
Can you believe we’re almost halfway through 2016 already!
On 11th May we held the bira High Street Conference, I hope those of you who managed to attend had a very enjoyable and fruitful day. For those of you who didn’t, the photographs are available on the website already here
I was very happy with our dedicated suppliers’ morning, it seems that we have an aligned vision of what we are hoping to achieve for the next 12 months. Suppliers; Stax, Meyer and Connect were kind enough to share some of their expertise and experience in how they have grown their business with bira direct in recent months and it was inspiring to see that we all have very similar plans going forwards.
Here at bira, we are very aware that the market is changing and evolving at all times and whilst we are currently re-writing our bira direct website - so that it is more functional and interactive, we are now launching a dedicated e-shot initiative.
By e-shot, there will be regular, targeted, exclusive offers sent to our members on a regular basis via email. Do keep a look at your inbox, as some of these offers will be available for only a few days at a time and we won’t be marketing anything which we don’t deem to be extremely competitive!
Going forwards, Autumn Fair will be upon us soon, and we have some exciting changes planned for this years’ set up. bira and i2i are working on a new layout and plan which will fit in with the ever-evolving target market of this trade show. Do make sure you mark out the 4th – 7th September 2016 in your diary for a visit, or to enquire about joining our section, as a featured bira supplier.
After such an ideas oriented High Street Conference I have a very busy diary over the next few weeks, but, as always, myself and team are keen to hear from you. Please do get in touch if you’d like to organise an e-shot, request a visit from one of our dedicated sales team, or to discuss any other area of business.
Wishing you a most successful and enjoyable Summer 2016.
