A full on and jam packed month for everyone here at STS – lots learnt and plenty of things to consider moving forward.

Builders Merchants Federation Marketing Forum

On the 3rd of April our Marketing Team were able to head down to Worcester Bosch for the BMF Marketing Forum. A great day with speakers from all over our industry weighing in on all things marketing. Despite an initial battle with the M5 traffic we made it to the forum and had the opportunity to listen to some of our peers about the success they have had with their own marketing campaigns. A truly inspirational day for all involved – for an industry often stereotyped as “old school” – we are coming through and creating waves – we can’t wait to see what the next year brings not only STS but also the building sector as a whole. It gave us a great opportunity to speak with experts in our industry and learn from one another – we are really looking forward to the next BMF forum. Thank you to the team at BMF who organised the event, Worcester Bosch for hosting and to all of the guest speakers for their time and case studies.

NMBS Exhibition & Gala Dinner

Another fab event perfectly executed by the Team at NMBS – Special thanks has to go to Nicola Harley for all the ongoing support during the build-up and the live event itself. The whole team was out in full force for the exhibition and what a day it was! We had a really successful day full of meeting new customers, catching up with current customers and showcasing some of our new products hitting the shelves soon.  

The Gala dinner was a great chance to speak to builder merchant customers as well as our peers and even Harry Redknapp. A great event and a perfect opportunity to talk trade.  

TTA Exhibition & Awards Dinner

The exhibition was held in the Birmingham Metropole Hotel again this year. The event was jam packed with our customers and other suppliers alike. We had plenty of time to speak to new customers and chin wag with familiar faces throughout the day before the evening events. Although this year we hadn’t entered any awards, STS enjoyed attending the dinner after the exhibition. It was truly fantastic so see so many small and large companies represented and achieving. Well done to all of those who came home with an award on the night – let’s see what next year’s event has in store for STS.

Thank you to everyone involved in the April 2019 events – we have had a brilliant few weeks immersing ourselves into the industry – now we are back to it and ready to make some waves.
