On the 19th April, A1 hosted its annual Spring Trade Show at the Whittlebury Hall in Towcester. This year’s show was 50% bigger than 2017’s, and A1 members were able to meet with almost 70 different suppliers, who were showcasing their products and services on their own stands.
Feedback collected since the show indicates it was a great success, and now it’s full steam ahead as A1 prepares for its overseas convention this September.
The Spring Trade Show was a particularly memorable day for Samantha Gutteridge, owner of Epic Accessories in Leicester. TRICO, leading wiper blade manufacturer and long-time supplier to A1, presented Samantha with a TRICO-liveried Ford Fiesta van, as part of a three-month wiper blade promotion following A1’s Convention last year.
Samantha said: “The new vehicle will help us on both a promotional and practical level in getting the message out to potential customers that we fit wiper blades in our designated fitting bay at the rear of our store, so a huge thanks to TRICO!”
TRICO, which has been working with A1 members for nearly 10 years, enjoyed a bustling A1 Trade Show – showcasing its Exact Fit, Neoform and award-winning Mota 1 programmes.
