Member Marketing

Cardgains continues to develop through its marketing initiatives and activities, which take place throughout the year. The Cardgains marketing calendar has proved effective and a benefit to both members and suppliers.

Some activities cater for both parties, whilst others aim to develop either the member and their store, or the supplier and their distribution.

The 2019 programme focuses on:

“Cardgains...still evolving and celebrating 30 years"!
