John Hornby Skewes has pledged its support of this year's MI Retail Conference & Expo – and is promising a series of special offers for dealers attending its stand.
The distributor will once again attend the event this summer as a Platinum Partner, having skipped it last year. But the firm is back for 2012 and will be giving dealers the opportunity to see a selection of the products that it will unveil at the earlier JHS Event.
"We exhibited in 2010 but with so many events last year it was not possible to exhibit at them all; that's why we had to miss last year," explained JHS' executive director for sales and marketing, Alan Smith. "We did visit, however, and it's clear to see there is a desire to come together, share views and discuss our industry in general, and that can only be a good thing.
"It's a great opportunity to chat directly with our customers about the industry, our products and service".
JHS will show a selection of products across several sectors, including guitar and amp, folk, pro audio, percussion and brass and woodwind. Brands demonstrated will include Fret King, Vintage, Odyssey, HK Audio, Carlsbro, Antoni and Performance Percussion.
Now in its third year, the MI Retail Conference & Expo will take place at The Brewery, London on Thursday June 28th. Musikmesse is the headline sponsor of the MI Retail Conference & Expo, with Platinum Partners including Barnes & Mullins, JHS and Yamaha. Gold Partners include Audio-Technica, EMC/Tanglewood, Elixir, FCN Music, IAG/Wharfedale, Intermusic, Lamba, Mel Bay, Monacor, Soundking and TC Electronic. Roland is once again sponsoring the After Show Drinks Reception.
Once again, the day will comprise a series of conference sessions in the morning, an expo after a free lunch, focused 'Break Out Sessions' and the After Show Drinks Reception.
The UK's top 250 retailers are set to attend the event, and dealers can register by emailing email@example.com or visiting the dedicated website at www.mirc-expo.com.
