Fegime 2017 Conference in Abu Dhabi

Posted: Wednesday, 17th May 2017

Fegime UK have always been renowned for their superb annual conferences where Key Suppliers and Members can network and socialize to help further develop business relationships. The 2017 Conference has certainly been reported as a major success. Geoff Kerly MD of KEW Electrical and this years Chairman of Fegime, alongside Alan Reynolds the CEO of Fegime chose this location after a visit in 2016. 

The event consisted of a number of events where people could network including a superb boat trip, city tour and a visit to one of the largest Mosques. 

The Gala Dinner gave the chance for speeches by Geoff Kerly on behalf of Fegime followed by a response by Mike Collins from Ansell Lighting. Geoff Kerly was keen to point out that although there are major national wholesalers, the Independent Sector still represents a major part of the UK Market and should not be overlooked by Suppliers. 

Mike Collins spoke of the importance of both Wholesalers and Suppliers finding a way to ensure they both Add Value to the end customer to avoid conversations just about price which leads to possible poor quality of products or not quoting like for like performance.

Finally, Alan Reynolds, CEO of Fegime and also Secretary of The Twelve Electric arranged a competition to guess the venue for next years Conference with each attendee donating money to the EIC and a local Charity in Kent. Alan was pleased to announce that even though the final figure had not been confirmed the total raised would exceed £1,500. This would be donated to The Twelve Electric who would then pass on to the chosen charities.


Next years Conference venue was announced by the incoming Fegime Chairman David Freshwater as Barcelona, incorporating the F1 Grand Prix.
