Wholesaler Roundtable to unlock the key to better sales in 2014

Four leading wholesalers and food and drink suppliers will come together this month to unlock the key to better communication and sales at the first-ever Wholesaler Roundtable, hosted by Better Wholesaling.

The debate, which will touch on the impact of price-marks, technology, symbol groups and foodservice, will bring together wholesale decision-makers, with a combined turnover of £4.5bn, to reflect on the highs and lows of the past year, and deliver action-oriented advice on how to grow category sales in 2014.

The Wholesaler Panel will include senior-level representatives from: Palmer & Harvey; J W Filshill (Today’s Group member); Imperial Cash & Carry (Today’s Group member) and Time Cash & Carry (Landmark member).

Suppliers that have confirmed so far include senior-level channel managers from: Boost, Heineken and Taylors of Harrogate.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • PMPs: good or bad?
  • Technology:  how can it improve the way we operate?
  • Foodservice: how can we make more of this opportunity?
  • Symbol: how can we attract more retailers to symbol status?
  • Talent: How can wholesale attract and retain a greater diversity of talent?
  • Support: What additional support do wholesalers / suppliers need?
  • Challenges: What worries wholesalers and suppliers most about 2014?

The Roundtable is free-of-charge for wholesalers and the first event will be held on 18th November 2013 at a central London location. If you would like to see the full agenda or would like to know how to participate, please email: elit.rowland@newtrade.co.uk; 07960 935 659.
