Dealers sing event’s praises as TGA Trade Roadshow proves a hit in South Yorkshire
TGA Mobility has declared its latest Trade Roadshow in Sheffield to have been its most successful event to date as dealers enjoyed unique incentives, opportunities and information on the day.
Held at the end at the Doubletree by Hilton hotel in south Sheffield, the event marked the mobility supplier’s second Roadshow in February after a well-attended event in Slough earlier in the month.
At its most recent event, dealers had the chance to get hands-on with TGA’s range of products including its new Breeze S4, Breeze Midi, WHILL powerchair, as well as demonstrations of TGA’s puncture sealant.
In addition to the product showcase, the event saw mobility retailers gain access to the supplier’s PR and marketing support to help drive showroom footfall and sales, as well as an opportunity for dealers’ technical queries to be answered by TGA’s Service Manager.
Alasdair Orr, Branch Manager of Millercare, commented: “We found the TGA Trade Roadshow in Sheffield highly beneficial in terms of adding value to our business. The focused format allowed us to discuss our needs in a more detailed manner so working with TGA will be more efficient through better reciprocal understanding.
“We had more time to speak in-depth about products and meet internal personnel so a stronger relationship could be forged – ultimately helping to give our customers improved service. We also discovered the unique range of free marketing and PR services they offer which will definitely help grow sales and brand awareness, particularly through their safe scooter driving days. The new TGA scooter passport and flight checklist for easier air travel with a scooter was also a great idea.”
Describing attendance numbers as “healthy,” TGA Mobility noted that the event reinforced its commitment to hassle-free trade relationships and giving trade partners to forge closer ties with key staff.
With detailed business discussions continuing throughout the day, the roadshow also gave attending dealers an opportunity to network with their peers over the free lunch.
Rob Cartledge, Managing Director of Derbyshire Mobility, explained: “We appreciate TGA’s investment of time and resources to deliver the northern Trade Roadshow – its location in Sheffield was ideal for us. We took full advantage of the product showcase and the incentives that were available.
“We were able to resolve a few technical queries and spend time test driving the brand-new Breeze range. Demonstrations of the TGA puncture sealant were useful along with the lengthy discussions we had with their marketing guys.”
According to TGA, feedback from the event was positive particularly around product innovation and marketing.
“The day provided a complete package of content to strengthen our scooter portfolio and service provision to high street customers – supported by professional regional PR and free social content,” added Rob.
“Add to this the networking opportunities with industry peers and a tasty free lunch, it was a rewarding experience that we would recommend to all dealers.”
Thanking all the dealers that attended and for their support, TGA’s National Sales Manager Tim Ross finished: “The TGA trade team and I found our latest roadshow to be rewarding especially as we had time to talk in-depth with dealers.
“Without distractions, we could really detail how to work together more easily and focus on individual priorities. The new Breeze range was particularly well received by visitors along with the various new marketing initiatives we have available to support dealers. Sheffield was the best yet and we hope it provides a platform for further mutual growth and relationship development.”https://thiis.co.uk/dealers-sing-events-praises-as-tga-trade-roadshow-proves-a-hit-in-south-yorkshire/https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/TGA-Roadshow-Sheffield.jpg?fit=900%2C595&ssl=1https://i1.wp.com/thiis.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/TGA-Roadshow-Sheffield.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1Events & ExhibitionsNewsroomRetailer NewsSupplier NewsTrade NewsDerbyshire Mobility,hassle-free,Millercare,National sales manager,North,passport,Scooter Safe Days,Sheffield,Slough,TGA Mobility,trade event,Trade RoadshowTGA Mobility has declared its latest Trade Roadshow in Sheffield to have been its most successful event to date as dealers enjoyed unique incentives, opportunities and information on the day.
