The BCG Big Tour, an exhibition of brands offered by the national distributor, drew to a close at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge, Surrey on November 18.
It was the fifth date in the roadshow, which had travelled from Scotland to Birmingham, onto Manchester then through to Bristol and finally Surrey.

Visitor figures are being collated but the roadshow hoped to attract up to 1,000 retailers, with Manchester, Birmingham and Weybridge being the best attended events.
Managing director of BCG, Chris Honer was pleased with the Big Tour indicating new brands to its portfolio, such as rigid fitted kitchen furniture, had been very successful.

Speaking at the Weybridge event, Gary Court of Moores Furniture Group agreed: “It has been very, very busy. The response has been really good. We’ve now got to go out and measure and design displays but the interest has been excellent.”

The BCG Tour culminated in a Gala dinner, held at Mercedes-Benz World, in aid of its chosen charity Action for Children.
Hosted by TV celebrity Ulrika Jonsson, the evening dinner featured a charity auction, including prizes such as a flat screen TV, offered by Ideal Standard, and InSinkErator’s box at Watford FC.
