Testimonials

Just wanted to email you to congratulate you and your team for the very enjoyable, well thought out and well assembled maiden BPMA Show.

I thought the size of the show was perfect. The time balance between suppliers and distributors was spot on. Being able to speak with our supply chain for 10-20 minutes without being interrupted was excellent and all with the feeling of free movement.

All the best and see you soon.

Sid Yaseen - Twelve Ten promotions

 

Just wanted to say ‘well done’ on a great show and evening event yesterday

Excellent show, well attended with quality exhibitors and distributors- there was a great buzz which was great to see following Brexit.

The show was well laid out in an excellent venue and location.

The news is good regarding the link between the BPMA and the SCM shows and I hope the best parts of both shows are considered and taken forward especially the location and the dinner with a mixture of appointments and open sessions.  If I can help in anyway with drawing on my experience just let me know

Diane Jaggard - The Encore Catalogue Group

 

Congratulations on launching a highly successful show at Silverstone yesterday. Just what I expected, a well-run show with quality distributors and a great chance to meet up midway through the year. 

Well done again on a well-executed show

Evan Lewis - Everything Environmental

 

I just wanted to say how absolutely brilliant The BPMA Show was yesterday.

We were really pleasantly surprised (as of course we did not what to expect from a brand new show), at just how well organised the whole day was, and what a lovely venue!

The welcome committee was lovely and made us feel so valued as a supplier. The quality of visitors was excellent and the whole day had such a good feel

Sue Moth - B.Sanders Ltd

 

I just wanted to thank you and all the bump team for a really terrific Show yesterday which exceeded our expectations enormously.

I genuinely thought this would be a “suck it and see” venture for Promo Trade Co and was not prepared for the overwhelming success that it was. We were busy all day, seeing the right people and having meaningful and relevant conversations.

With the Education Day on Tuesday and the Awards Dinner last night this has been two days out of the office with positive and demonstrable value for myself and my team members that attended.  Roll on next year – my diary is waiting for the dates!

Malcolm Garmett - Promo Trade Co

 

Many congratulations to you and the bpma team for organising such a superb event. From start to finish a great triumph. The show had a great vibe about it from both exhibitors and visitors. I met several new suppliers which was very useful for the catalogue. The dinner was a very enjoyable night with superb food. One does not always expect quality food at a large catering event, but I felt this was achieved admirably by Whittlebury Hall.

I know how much hard work goes into an event like this. You succeeded in making everything go very smoothly.

I am delighted in the announcement of an amalgamation with Market Place, I think it will create a very special event for the industry.

Well done! Have a good weekend, you have earned it!

Richard Mack - RT Promotions

We took one of our key accounts to the event as I was very keen to show them the range and variety of products that are available. It is simply not possibly for me to present every product to them as there are literally thousands in the marketplace.

Our clients loved the show and found loads of new ideas for their future marketing as well as gaining an understanding of the different print techniques on display, which was really useful. There were three or four specific products that they totally fell in love with, and they have subsequently already placed a good sized order with me for two of them.

It’s also worth noting that the client felt very special to have been asked to the show, this came as a nice surprise to me. I know some distributors are reticent about introducing clients to the supply chain, but for us it worked, and worked an absolute treat in fact!

The Future of Sharing & Collecting Industry Data

david longDiscover Dynamic Highway

Dynamic Highway is going to resolve the biggest issue facing the industry today - Data Sharing & Collection.

Today, suppliers have continuing requests to provide data to numerous distributors in numerous formats, and distributors have to contact & chase multiple suppliers. - This is time consuming, costly and a distraction from your core business. Dynamic Highway will totally resolve this issue, and at the same time provide all data distributors need to generate online sales from one simple to use central source.

Sourcing City have made a £100,000+ investment in Dynamic Highway, come and discover the coming revolution in the sharing and collection of product information, personalised pricing and stock data to feed any bespoke distributor websites.

The company’s founder & executive chairman David Long DMS, DipM, had his early management career in the blue-chip corporate arena. He joined Dowlis Group as managing director in 1990 and led the team to grow the company from £2.4m to £12.5m turnover over 12 years, firmly establishing the company as the largest independent promotional merchandise distributor in the UK. He was also chairman of Promota for a number of years, during which time the membership grew to its peak of 1000 trade company members, the organisations name was changed from BAGDA to Promota, The Promota Show was established as the industry’s leading trade event, and a new competing trade show was successfully defeated by the unification of the members. In 2002 he founded Dynamic Image Ltd, which has since established market leading services across the industry, such as; Sourcing City, Sourcing City Marketplace, Sourcing Planet, Promotional Office Software and in 2016 Dynamic Highway. In 2007 Promota presented David with the ‘Roger Saunders Award’ for outstanding services to the industry.

David now dedicates part of his time giving back to his local community with a weekly news bulletin, designing free literature to promote the village and providing free support to local village businesses. In 2010 he founded Milford on Sea Food Week, a not for profit, community event. The event was designed to promote the 20 fine places to eat in the village, alongside many other food events to entertain and educate local foodies. In 2016 there were over 150+ events in Food Week, with 300+ volunteers and event makers making everything happen, and visitor numbers exceeded 15,000. Although not a charity event, Food Week has created profits which has enabled in excess of £30,000 to be donated to village good causes since the start. In 2011 David was presented the Hampshire Life Recognition Award for his community services.

Jamie McDonald - Adventureman

jamie-mcdonald 4fe28In this inspirational, fast paced talk Jamie will take you on an adventure of highs and lows, sharing his story as just an ‘ordinary’ guy. Jamie speaks right from the heart and shows us the long lasting rewards of never giving up, embracing adversity and finding your inner superhero.

Jamie has become somewhat of an Adventurer. Having spent the first nine years of his life most of the time in hospital, as a result of suffering from a rare spinal condition, Jamie has spent many years giving back through phenomenal feats of emotional and physical endurance.

In 2012 Jamie cycled 14,000 miles from Bangkok to Gloucester, UK, he was shot at, arrested and slept rough. Days later he broke the World Record for non-stop Marathon Static Cycling, stepping off the bike after 268 hours (more than 11 days!). If that wasn't enough, dressed as a Superhero, he then ran 5000 miles (more than 200 marathons!) across Canada being the first person in history without a support crew - raising more than a quarter of a million pounds to the hospitals. Jamie’s adventures made news all over the world.

Jamie is an international speaker and shares his story as just an ‘ordinary’ guy. Jamie speaks right from the heart and shows us the long lasting rewards of never giving up, embracing adversity and finding your inner superhero.

This 30 minute session will help you understand what’s required and how it will make a tangible difference to your business.

Why most company’s customer service values are betrayed by their own behaviours

Chris BrindleyCustomer service is now the true differential on which consumers decide whether to do business with an organisation or not, yet most company’s still do not understand what customers and prospects really experience. You will see how truly customer centric organisations think from the customer to influence the balance sheet and not the other way round!

Chris Brindley has spent the last 30 years bringing his mission statement to life in both business and sport. He has brought life to “ Consistently Delivering Outstanding Results and Developing Winners in Life” and has led teams to several nationally recognised awards along the way. These include National Business Award for Most Outstanding Employer, National Customer Service Awards- Team of the Year, National Sales Awards - Sales Leader of the Year and has also been recognised as Britain’s Best Boss.

Chris has replicated this approach in sport and has transformed several organisations, and supported olympic medallists transition from sport into business. What’s his secret? Put Simply, Chris believes that without customers, organisations fail. That may seem common sense, but as Chris will highlight, common sense is rarely common practice. Companies fail when they put their obsession with cost saving as the priority, and are blind or dismissive to the impact that these actions have on customer spend.

Lately Chris has been practising what he preaches as the MD of Metro Bank, the first high street Bank to open its doors in over 170 years. Metro Bank has transformed an industry that has been based on customer inertia and where trust has been steadily eroded over a number of years, and as the leading challenger Bank, Metro Bank is recognised as one of the world’s leading customer service organisations, based on an “ AMAZING” colleague culture. Chris will share his personal experiences on how Metro Bank has gone from zero to one of the world’s fastest growing organisations.

  • Delegates will understand how putting the customer first, will create Fans who will be your Brand Ambassadors and your best salespeople
  • How having an obsession about “No Stupid Rules” will create committed employees and loyal customers
  • How culture underpins everything you are trying to achieve and how a simple yet brilliant set of behaviours can transform your business

How to drive up profit margins in your business

peter-hillA practical session looking at specific barriers to growing profit margins, tackling the real issues faced by bpma members.

There is no doubt that every business must be constantly vigilant to its profit margins. In those selling ‘similar’ products, or where customers increasingly shop ‘online’, the pressure is at its highest. So how can you defend prices and maximise profit? What can you do to beat the competition without caving in on price? What are the techniques others use to get customers to pay premium prices? This session will look at some of the key principals of setting prices, and the ways in which businesses can ‘hold the line’ against the charge of bucket shop discounters. It will explore the real issues and tackle bpma members specific concerns. There is no doubt that getting your prices right is the single most important factor that determines a business’s success or failure.

Peter is a Partner in Mark Holt & Co, a successful accounting practice, and also Healium LLP a business consultancy that works on projects to boost business profits, and where they are paid exclusively on results. Through these roles Peter has acquired over 30 years’ experience in what separates the businesses that succeed from those that fail. He is the author of ‘Pricing for Profit’ (Published by Kogan Page and available on Amazon). A practical guide to a wide range of techniques to grow profit margins by looking at all of the internal and external factors driving prices down, using real life case studies, simple language and common sense principles. He has extensive experience in working with businesses (including bump members) on projects that tackle this problem by addressing the fundamentals of pricing, as well as looking at the techniques that successful businesses use to improve margins.

The event will use the results of a survey looking at what obstacles bpma members encounter on a daily basis, and have interactive sessions to get attendees engaged with the issues and sharing their own experiences.
