Gem Distribution has signed up to be a platinum partner at the PCR Boot Camp, and will be showcasing its wide range of channel services to delegates.
The event, which is due to be held at The Brewery on Chiswell Street in London, is now in its second year and offers the opportunity for up to 250 resellers and retailers to gain advice from experts and network with distributors and vendors.
“We are excited to be a Platinum Partner for PCR’s 2013 Retail Boot Camp,“ stated Gem’s UK general manager, Darren Houghton.
“In what is a tough time across the channel, due to the impact of current economics on the High Street, we felt that it was essential to attend so as to continue our support and ensure that independent retailers are aware of the ever increasing measures we are taking to help maintain and grow their business.”
Gem enjoys a solid reputation in the gaming and IT channel, having established itself as one of the channel’s leading distributors as well as branching out to offer bespoke creative design, digital distribution and logistics services.
“The PCR Retail Boot Camp presents the ideal opportunity to show the Channel the diverse product ranges we supply as well as the unique added-value services Gem offers to support the sell-through of the products once they are in store or online,” added Gem’s head of marketing and creative services , Katie Rawlings.
“The attending partners will have the opportunity to see product from some of our partners, discuss the additional benefits we can offer as a channel partner and sign up for a trading account. It’s going to be a busy and exciting day.”
