With so many branches in the MKM network it can sometimes prove a challenge for our suppliers to get a representative to every branch to demonstrate and showcase their products, so a unique solution was brought to life in the shape of a very special kind of event where 18 of our different suppliers took part in our Instinct Tradeshow event on Friday 25th July 2014 at the KC Stadium in Hull.
The event gave our Branch Directors and Lightside Specialists a chance to learn more about the features and benefits of the Instinct range.
Our teams were put through a unique ‘speed networking’ format where they were split into groups. Suppliers, which included Pegler Taps, Roman Showers, Roper Rhodes and Pura, then delivered a 15 minute presentation before the groups moved on to the next supplier stand.
Feedback from our branches has been extremely positive and Brian Morton, Branch Director from Berwick Branch, said: “This has been a great event and our colleagues came away feeling more knowledgeable and confident with the Instinct range.”
Our teams also said it was nice to meet Lightside Specialists from other branches that they wouldn’t normally get the chance to meet with. The speed networking format was a great success and everyone agreed it was the best way to find out as much information as possible in the time available.
