Year 12 Business students have just returned from a successful buying trip at the NEC Spring Fair, the largest trade fair of its kind in Europe.

Students were tasked with selecting a range of impulse products aimed at a youth target market and worked in groups of four to negotiate with suppliers and secure the best margins – allowing for VAT, wholesale and retail prices.

The students impressed all who they met with their professionalism and sound bargaining skills. Our thanks go to James Hall and GAP staff who gave up valuable time to support students in this unique opportunity.
