AIEW Trade Show 2019

Members and Partner Suppliers together

De Vere Water Park View


Associated Independent Electrical Wholesalers (AIEW) held its 2019 Trade Show and Dinner at the De Vere Cotswold Water Park on the 5th of October.

The Trade Show ran from 11:00am to 4:30pm with trade stands representing AIEW's Partner Suppliers. Many suppliers showcased new products and with a variety of competitions, prize draws and on the day offers, stands were busy and business was bustling.

Another successful show was made possible by the support and efforts of AIEW's Partner Suppliers and their staff for in what was a long day; AIEW and its Members thank them all. As always the AIEW Trade Show was all about bringing Members and Partner Suppliers together away from the day to day pressures of the Trade Counter and allowing Suppliers build better business relationships with AIEW Member wholesalers.
