Stax Trade Centres launches new big brands event online

During a time where many businesses across the UK are having to adapt to a new way of operating, wholesale giants Stax Trade Centres have unveiled their plans to take one of their most popular annual trade shows online. 

Stax’s Big Brands Show has been running in excess of 20 years, offering customers exciting show-only deals on thousands of products from leading suppliers including The Dencon Group, PPG, Evergreen Garden Care. 

For obvious reasons, holding the 2020 event inside Stax’s 6 UK-wide branches would not have been possible. Rather than postpone this year’s show, the team at the UK’s biggest non-food wholesaler have made significant updates to their online platforms and have unveiled plans to run the event in an exciting all-new online format. 

Taking place from the 7th-18th September, the Stax website will play host to the Big Brands Trade Discount Event - featuring hundreds of exclusive event-only deals laid out in a straightforward and easy-to-use manner. 

In the same way Big Brands took over the shop floor at Stax branches during previous shows, it will now be taking over website pages that will be dedicated to this year’s discount event. Stax customers will also be able to reach out to hundreds of suppliers throughout the two-week period, making it much easier to discuss deals and create orders. 

Simon Wright, Purchasing Director at Stax Trade Centres, said:

“I’m sure everybody will agree that what we are doing to make sure the event is every bit as successful as it has always been during this post pandemic period, is a true sign of our commitment to driving UK business forward. It’s also important to mention that whilst this really is an innovative and inclusive step forward digitally, extending the event out to two weeks and ensuring the deals are available at all of our cash & carry branches will help us maintain staff and customers safety.”

“Our event will provide customers with all the fantastic deals and supplier engagement they have come to expect with the in-branch show. It will also introduce many improvements being made to the site to make website visits a more convenient experience than ever before,” he added.
