Spring Fair Buyers Power List

This week has been a busy week for Temptation Gifts. Spending 4 days at the Spring Fair trade show at the NEC, our buyers have been carefully picking out all the best new products and ranges, to bring to you in the upcoming months.

Whilst they were there our buying team, were fortunate enough to pick up a prestigious national award.

The Buyers Power List was set up by the organiser of Spring Fair, i2i Events Group sponsored by Light & Living. This year was the debut of the awards which were designed to recognise influential buying teams and individuals across all of the sectors represented at Spring Fair via 3 different categories;

  • Power 30: This category consists of 30 buyers that industry peers voted for and ranked
  • Best Independent Retail Buyer or Team: 20 independent retailers were listed in this category, and the industry voted for the retailer who is considered to have the best buyers.
  • Best Multiple Retailer or Department Store Team: 20 teams from the major retailers were listed in this category, and the industry decided on the inspirational leader of the pack. 

We were very excited to even be nominated for ‘Best Independent Retail Buyer or Team’ and even more so when we were announced the winners at the award ceremony on Monday 2nd February.

Commenting on being shortlisted for an award,  Managing Director of Temptation Gifts,  Mike Adams said, “We are honoured and flattered to have been nominated.  Temptation Gifts was established in 1983, so we have over 30 years’ buying experience in the gift industry.  We now buy for our seven town-centre stores and our two multi-award winning websites, and the range of products that we carry is both wide-ranging and increasingly diverse.”
