Hotelympia has announced that this year’s event will be supported by Amazon Business – a new B2B marketplace with unique solutions tailored to UK businesses.
Hotelympia Portfolio Director, Ross Carter, explains how this brings together two brand leaders in their respective fields, and will have far reaching benefits for exhibitors and visitors alike.
He says: “At a time when everyone is examining their cost base, the digital route to market – offering lower risk, higher visibility and greater autonomy for suppliers – is an incredibly important consideration, which is why we welcome this partnership, forged with a true giant of digital commerce.
“A newly established and rapidly growing sales channel for a wide range of foodservice equipment, appliances and ambient food products, Amazon Business can help suppliers tap into more than 100,000 small, medium and large business customers in the UK alone.”
Based on Stand 2110, part of the newly established Interiors & Tableware Show, the Amazon Business team will be on hand throughout the four day show to demonstrate to visitors the benefits of becoming a certified business seller. These include: business-specific pricing, automated free invoicing, European logistics capabilities and a host of advertising and sponsoring solutions.
Head of Business Development for Amazon Business UK James Wilson says: “Since launching in the UK in April 2017, Amazon Business has grown to serve over 100,000 business customers, with more than 30,000 sellers having accessed this sales channel and millions of business-relevant products available for purchase. The food service sector is a key part of the B2B segment that we serve and we hope this partnership demonstrates our commitment to both customers and suppliers in this area.”
Registration is now open for Hotelympia, which this year introduces four contemporary shows, united under one roof, as part of a fresh new identity. The Professional Kitchen Show, The Foodservice Show incorporating Café Commerce, Hospitality Tech Show and Interiors and Tableware Show will be specialist events in themselves.
