STAG triumphs in Republic of Ireland

STAG’s inaugural All Ireland Buying Show has been described as a triumph by joint managing director Ward Robertson.

Fifty members attended the two-day event at the Tullamore Court Hotel, representing a 96 per cent turnout rate. Visitor levels were boosted by a number of non-member retailers.

“We were delighted with the turnout for the show,” says Robertson.

“We now have 70 retailers in Ireland, and when you consider that many of our members in Northern Ireland will attend our UK show you can appreciate what a great triumph the whole event was.”

According to Robertson, the brands in attendance played their part by supporting the show with exclusive special offers and buying incentives: “Their enthusiasm and willingness to support the Irish independent sports trade made for a great atmosphere from a business and social point of view.

“The show has put STAG firmly on the map in the Republic of Ireland, and STAG look forward to returning bigger and better next year for our second All Ireland Buying Show.”
