MADE NORTH Learning Lunch: Meet the Buyer with

Sheffield Design Week organisers MADE NORTH have programmed a series of informal learning@lunches for anyone in the design industry in Sheffield region from crafts people to designers and makers. Take just 90 minutes out of your day and discover something useful for you and your business. 

This meet the buyer event is a fantastic opportunity to get under the skin of what retailers really really want from crafts people, designers and makers.

We are joined by Toni Anne Sanderson of design emporium who will talk about how and where she and her team discover new designs and designers, how they decide what to stock, what their expectations are of suppliers and how the whole buying process works. This informal talk will be followed by plenty of opportunity for questions and discussions around the table.
