E.Tupling has revealed the date for its popular annual outdoor supplier and customer event, which is set to be held this year on Wednesday 11 May at its Warrington Distribution centre.
The event last year attracted a huge number of plumbers’ and builders’ merchants who travelled from as far as Kent, Wales and Scotland to join in what was described as a hugely informative and successful day. More than 150 merchant customers, manufacturers and key industry personnel are anticipated to attend this time around.
The distributor has said that 19 of the leading UK Building Plastics and Underfloor Heating Manufacturers it represents – including Polypipe, FloPlast, Pipelife, Flexseal, Grant, Fastwarm and Alumasc – are fully championing the event, with each manufacturer having committed to showcase several new and innovative ranges at the event, alongside numerous product demonstrations, informative conversations and free samples.
E.Tupling will also utilise the event as a platform to raise money for its corporate charity, The Warrington Wolves Charitable Foundation, for whom it is a business patron. All proceeds from the raffle, “which has amazing prizes”, will go to the charity who provide life changing opportunities through sport and education to support, enrich and inspire children and their families. Local press and the foundation’s mascot Wolfie, are looking forward to attending this momentous event!
Claire Briars, Marketing Manager at E.Tupling, said: “Our annual events are extremely popular; they provide a unique and rare opportunity for our customers to explore all of the leading UK building plastics and underfloor heating manufacturers in one place whilst also providing a captivating and informative networking experience, including personalised guided tours of our 25,000sq.ft. warehouse and offices, free food and drink, 19 manufacturer exhibitions, superb raffle prizes and the opportunity to meet the entire team.”
Customer Oliver Wilson, General Manager at Plumbing For Less, said of last year’s event: “The whole day was incredible from start to finish, actually seeing the behind-the-scenes operations and the sheer scale of E.Tupling’s huge growth in such a short space of time was staggering. They executed the event in the same unique way that they run their entire business, I call it the Tupling way; 100% personalised, thorough and always surpassing our expectations!”
The distributor’s Commercial Director Ross Duncanson added: “We are very much looking forward to seeing many of our partners on 11 May. This year. our customer event will be focusing on Renewables and Underfloor Heating – a sector which is evolving and growing at an exponential rate. From air source heat pumps and mechanical ventilation heat recovery to brand new underfloor heating systems, we will be showcasing a number of technically brilliant and innovative product ranges.
“All of our building and plumbing plastics manufacturers will also be there, we invite all merchants to join us on the day, come along and see how we can enhance your business.”
