Aiming high

STAG wants to finish 2013 on a high with its autumn/winter buying show, which takes place on November 24-25.

As well as big-name brands such as Canterbury, Mizuno, Reydon Sports, Hi-TEC, ASICS, Helly Hansen, Joma Sport, McDavid, Uhlsport and Puma, a number of new exhibitors will be in attendance at the stunning Cotswolds Water Park Hotel.

Launches
“We are looking forward to the largest of our four STAG buying shows in the Cotswolds in November,” says Ricky Chandler, the buying group’s managing director.

“After successfully launching our brand-new summer shows and with a good autumn/winter show in Ireland last month, we are now focusing all our efforts on making our November STAG show the best yet.”

STAG has a diverse range of suppliers that’s growing all the time. A fact that’s highlighted by its list of new show exhibitors, which include:

• Chatham – a British company that sells deck, country and outdoor footwear.
• Craghoppers – world famous outdoor and travel clothing company.
• Crocs – innovative casual footwear.
• Dare 2b – high quality outdoor clothing.
• Football Flick Urban – a three-dimensional, multi-user football skills trainer.
• Terra Nova – tent, sleeping bag, clothing and camping accessories brand.
• Trutex – school uniform and sportswear supplier.

Network
Day one of the show starts at 9am and finishes at 6pm.

STAG members and suppliers can then enjoy an excellent complimentary dinner in the hotel restaurant, followed by live music in the bar, where everyone can relax, network and enjoy some well deserved down time.

Day two starts at 9am.

Chandler explains: “We are keeping to the same format of Sunday and Monday being the show days for our members to attend.

“Our exhibitors will arrive on the Saturday to prepare their stands and exclusive show deals for all of the independent retailers.

“The STAG shows would be nothing without our suppliers and retailers giving up their weekends to support us, and we thank them very much for their ongoing enthusiasm and hard work to make the shows such an enjoyable and worthwhile two days.”
