Summary of the WVS MTB 2023 (May, UK)

WOW, well that was some event. The first in the series of WVS Meet the Buyer events in the UK and what a success it was. With around 100 suppliers and 50 buyers at the beautiful Belfry Hotel and Gold Resort in the midlands, the room was buzzing. Meetings, networking, business being done, and of course golf!
The feedback has been fantastic and as such we are proud to announce that we will return with our MTB format in:
As always, a BIG thank you to our Partners, Suppliers, Buyers, and everyone who helped be part of such a positive event, Especially Phoenix 2 Retail.. See you all soon!

See what attendees thought of our first Meet the Buyer event in May 2023:

“For businesses looking to do business with businesses, WVS' Meet The Buyer event needs to be in your calendar. I was able to have meaningful, in-depth conversations with key contacts and meet potential suppliers that I may well have missed if I was walking through a trade show / expo. The event was held at a beautiful venue, setting a professional tone but WVS had planned some great activities to follow up with our new connections in a less formal setting. As a buyer, I found new suppliers and was exposed to more products in one day than I could have done in an entire weekend. The calibre of my fellow buyers added value for the attending suppliers, and the same goes for the suppliers adding value for us buyers. Well done to the WVS team, I look forward to the next event”.

Matthew Dorkings, Vapebase.

“We would like the thank the World Vape Show and the team for putting this event together, it was a privilege to sponsor the event and bring some of our retailer partners along to see brands the future innovation of products. A massive thank you from and look forward to next year”.

Chris Kelly, Phoenix 2 Retail.

“We would like to thank the team for organising “Meet The Buyer”, for us this was a resounding successful event, without saying to much you will see us in a major high street chain, and a major distributor very soon and this is very much so because of discussions at the event, the concept the team have come up with while organising this event has thrust our timeline forward by at least 6-12 months, again thank you for a great opportunity and thank you also for the support.”

Peter Masters from Pop Vapor.

“This event has opened so many doors for us and we couldn’t be more grateful to the WVS team. We are working with our new partners as we speak in getting our products launched out into more stores here in the UK.”

Alexander Althaus, GOLD BAR.
