Romania Trade Mission – Nov 2018

Date(s) - 25/11/2018 - 27/11/2018
All Day

As part of the BHETA Export drive, we are delighted to announce that the trade mission to Bucharest, Romania has been rescheduled to take place on 25th -27th November 2018.  Again, we are organising the mission in partnership with the British Romanian Chamber of Commerce, who are providing a packed schedule of events.

With Romania’s twenty million population and a home improvement (DIY) market worth an estimated 2-3 billion EUR per year, Romania has seen developing trends in both gardening and housewares.  DIY retailers reported a sales growth of up to 30% in 2016 with Dedeman and Arabesque holding 80% of the market share.  Home and garden specialist retail chains are a favourite shopping destination with trends increasingly more in line with Western consumers.

The country’s economy is set to continue growing and consumers are predicted to become more aware of the changes in the marketplace.  Home and garden is expected to follow a positive trend with consumers demanding convenience and high quality.

To support this developing market the event will bring together relevant buyers, distributors and market experts from Romania’s major Home Improvement, Housewares (particularly utility suppliers) and Gardening retailers, together with essential store visits and 1:1 buyer meetings.  Please follow this LINK for an example of the retailers who are being approached to take part in the event.

Details of the proposed itinerary can be found by following this link

Two and three day packages are available which include a 20% discount for bookings made prior to 31st October 2018.
