As part of the BHETA Export drive and following the success of our Slovenian Mission in 2017, we are pleased to announce notification of a forthcoming trade mission taking place on 16th – 18th April 2018 to Bucharest, Romania, which is being organised by the British Romanian Chamber of Commerce.
With Romania’s twenty million population and a home improvement (DIY) market worth an estimated 2-3 billion EUR per year, Romania has seen developing trends in both gardening and housewares. DIY retailers reported a sales growth of up to 30% in 2016 with Dedeman and Arabesque holding 80% of the market share. Home and garden specialist retail chains are a favourite shopping destination with trends increasingly more in line with Western consumers.
The country’s economy is set to continue growing and consumers are predicted to become more aware of the realities of the marketplace. Home and garden is expected to follow a positive trend with consumers demanding convenience and high quality.
To support this developing market the event will bring together relevant buyers, distributors and market experts from Romania’s major Home Improvement, Housewares (Home Utility, Storage and Cleaning) and Gardening retailers.
The mission will take place over two days and will consist of store visits and a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event with significant Romanian retailers. Two and three-night packages will be available which will include accommodation (B&B), airport/hotel transfers and one organised dinner (participants will be responsible for their own flights and other food). There’s an indicative cost of £600 for the three-night option with outward travel likely to be required on Sunday 15th April.
Full details of the event and how to register will be released shortly, but in the meantime please save the date for what will be a very popular event.
