Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group had successful industry kitchen conference
The presence of Kitchen Bathroom Buying Group (KBBG) at this year's kbbreview Kitchen Conference earlier this month , proved a great success for the KBBG, which was also one of the event's sponsors.
It was the first opportunity for KBBG to engage face-to-face with kitchen and bathroom retail specialists and explain the benefits of the KBBG's membership, its strategy and plans for the future.
As the market is slowly emerging from economic turmoil and the retail channel is registering the first signs of positive growth, the KBBG, whose aim is to exclusively support kitchen specialists, uses its huge international buying power to offer UK members the best possible buying terms from a number of leading European manufacturers and suppliers. It plans to focus first on kitchen products and specialists, before targeting bathroom products and retailers.
The KBBG is a subsidiary of the leading kitchen and bathroom buying group in Europe, Der Kreis, which has over 30 years' experience in this sector. The Group was launched in July 2013 to the UK market: "To make the kitchen channel healthier, in every aspect, now and for the future," explains the Group's Managing Director Bill Miller.
KBBG offers a range of extensive benefits and services to its members, including what it says are the best buying conditions across a number of leading European brands, access to unique own label collections and promotional campaigns, a convenient central payment facility and a range of training seminars tailored to the needs of the specialist retail channel.
