The Bestway Retail Showcase 2023 will take place at the Liverpool Exhibition Centre on the 25 May 2023, with the wholesaler claiming that 1000 retailers will attend alongside 140 suppliers.

The larger event will incorporate elements of the renowned regional Retail Development Shows and the Drinks at Home events (hosted by Bargain Booze).

There will be live demos, presentations on best practice and opportunity for retailers to participate in workshops, as well as engaging in networking events with other independent retailers as well as suppliers and Bestway colleagues.

In a further move, Bestway’s Retail Development Awards (RDA’s) will be relaunching in May as Bestway Performance Awards being hosted at the end of the year.  The awards celebrate outstanding achievements and businesses successes as part of Bestway’s ethos of continuous development and helping retailers drive growth.

Speaking of the new initiative, Bestway Wholesale’s managing director, Dawood Pervez says: “We are delighted and proud to be launching The Bestway Retail Showcase, which is a major investment into our retailers, and takes our Retail Development Programme to a whole new level, launching as unique new trade show hand-in-hand with a new media partner.

“We’re there together to share ideas, learn from each other and build new relationships in a friendly, community and convivial atmosphere.   This is just one example of the value add that Bestway Retail offers retailers as being the true champion of the independent retailer.

“We see this event as a journey of discovery for our retailers.  It’s often hard for independent retailers to find time to discover the latest trends and insights to support their business but here is the opportunity for them to discover the latest and great new products and services from suppliers, as well as share ideas from meeting like-minded independent business owners, often with the same challenges.
