Appliance buying group Sirius Buying Group recently held its ninth annual international conference at The Ritz-Carlton Abama in Tenerife, calling its “biggest yet” with 87 member delegates from 48 approved member companies in attendance.

At the conference, Sirius spoke to attendants about its performance over the last 12 months and highlighted retail and purchasing trends, while the event’s charity awards gala managed to raise £11,000. “I’m delighted to see our Charity Awards Gala raise so much money for very worthy causes,” said Sirius commercial director Steve Jones.

He added: “To see the event sell out again, after the success of last year, shows just how important Sirius Buying Group has become to the wider KBB sector. Our influence in the appliance and kitchen market is growing rapidly and we’re looking forward to a raft of new developments in the months ahead.

“In fact, our 2019 conference witnessed 20% growth when compared to 2018 which experienced 35% growth over 2017, and this success was echoed with our greatest level of new accounts being opened by members through our suppliers,” Jones said.

“The aim is to actively encourage loyalty within the group, so we can deliver exclusive rewards and benefits. Ultimately, business outside of the group is at an all-time low so we need to safeguard our commerciality and fast-track growth for all Sirius affiliates.”
