Time to Book - Trade Show, Gala Dinner and Sales Masterclass

18th August 2016

The UK Corrugated Industry Trade Show 2016 is the only 'Industry specific' Trade Show in the UK this year. The Show opens it's doors on Tuesday 20th September and is proudly hosted by the Sheet Plant Association.

Not only will the Trade Show be packed with Exhibitors supplying the Corrugated Industry, there will be 'break out' sessions during the Show (on the Wednesday morning) that will be of particular interest to Sheet Plants. The Trade Show will showcase the products and services of 40+ Industry Suppliers.

The Trade Show will run for two days -

Tuesday 20th September is exclusively for SPA members,colleagues and guests and will include the SPA Gala Dinner with celebrity after-dinner speaker (Bobby Davro).

Wednesday 21st September is an extension of the Trade Show and will feature 'break out' sessions of particular interest to SPA Members. Also at 12.30 SPA members are invited to attend an 'All New' Sales Managers' Masterclass presented by Stuart Lotherington from SBR Consulting. In this (4 hour) Masterclass, Stuart Lotherington from SBR will share with you how to work with your team to optimise their performance. This training will be 'workbook' based and Stuart will cover in great depth -

1. How do you design your sales process the way your customers like to buy ?
2. Is your sales methodology out of date? How do modern top producers sell ?

This Masterclass is free of charge for all SPA members and will be a mixture of both presentation and workshop. Once the theory, skills and proven logic have been presented you will then work in groups to best establish how this can be installed in your business on your return... Thus making this training and agreed best practice truly ‘installable’.

You will receive a Workbook containing the presentation content and you will be encouraged to make notes and ‘personalise’ your copy to help you on your return to your business.

** This Masterclass is Free of Charge to all SPA Members attending the Trade Show **
