The British Home Enhancement Trade Association (BHETA) is hosting a networking webinar with Lakeland on Tuesday 24 November at 2.30pm. The online forum will feature Philippa Simons, Head of Buying and Scott Jefferson, Lakelandâ€™s Commercial Director.
Philippa and Scott will be sharing details about Lakelandâ€™s â€˜Playing to Winâ€™ category strategy, which is a plan for product over the next three years. This will include information highlighting the categories seen as winners; and those which will be reduced or remain with more static, but credible ranges.
The webinar will also cover off Lakelandâ€™s approach to trading in the pandemic, the trends emerging as a result and the steps which the retailer is taking to adapt.
One such trend is the rising importance of Eco in terms of products and packaging. Lakelandâ€™s membership of WRAP and its efforts to reduce the use of plastic packaging, together with the challenges which must addressed will be discussed. Afterwards, delegates will be able to ask questions.
The BHETA Lakeland event will also include an opening address from BHETAâ€™s Chief Operating Officer, Will Jones, summarising the trade associationâ€™s member support activities during the pandemic and key focus moving forward.
Will commented, â€œBHETA has been working hard to provide members with advice and up to the minute information during this challenging time. I am delighted to say it has also been able to maintain its programme of retailer
networking services for members, of which this occasion is another excellent example. It is great to see Lakeland setting out the opportunities for the future. There are many; and itâ€™s good that BHETA can facilitate insights like these.â€
