Irish Trade Mission – April 2019

Date(s) - 03/04/2019 - 04/04/2019
12:00 am

As part of the BHETA Export Drive, we are delighted to announce our next Trade Mission which will be to Dublin, Ireland on 3rd – 4th April 2019.  The Mission will be organised in partnership with Hardware Association Ireland who will be providing a full schedule of events.

Hardware Association Ireland (LINK TO HAI WEBSITE) is the national representative body for hardware/DIY retailers and builders merchants, as well as manufacturers/distributors to the trade. They uniquely represent all levels of the supply chain and include within their membership national and international companies, multi-branch chains and smaller independent hardware businesses.

To support this resurgent market the event will bring together relevant buyers, distributors and market experts from Ireland’s major Home Improvement, Gardening and Housewares retailers, together with essential store visits and 1:1 buyer meetings.

As an example of the programme of events that you can expect during the Mission, here is an overview of the current schedule:
