Sugro held its first face to face conference since the pandemic began, providing an opportunity for members and suppliers to network.
The wholesaler used the event to update customers on Sugro’s 2021 trading progress and 2022 plans. The event also facilitated one to one network meetings between members and suppliers, with over 800 appointments taking place on the day.
Managing director at Sugro, Neil Turton, said: “Sugro is one of the first organisations to run a physical event this year. Members and Suppliers were genuinely happy to see each other after so many months of restrictions.
“The atmosphere throughout the event was very positive with a fantastic spirit seen in both Members and Suppliers which flowed into some substantial business being done on the day.”
Head of trading and marketing, Yulia Petitt, commented: “We received some great feedback from our Members and Supply Partners. We were delighted to be able to see our Members and Suppliers in person once again and we were exceptionally pleased with a high level of attendance and participation.
“We have been eager to resume physical events for some time but we wanted to wait until it was safe to do so. We look forward to delivering our busy events schedule across 2021 and 2022 which will provide both Members and Suppliers with some fantastic opportunities to interact, network and continue to drive the business forward by capitalising on key elements of Sugro strategy which is focused on further digitalisation, diversification and group data service.
