We’re all set for kick off at the National Football Centre, St George’s Park, Burton on Trent, where the food and drink wholesale sector gathers for its annual summit on July 14. The hotel and dinner are now fully booked, but there are still a few places for the conference only.
The FWD conference is the wholesale sector’s annual update on the state of the industry, bringing together wholesalers, suppliers and service providers. The 230 delegates include representatives of 27 FWD member companies, including CEOs and FWD Council members – the largest ever turnout of wholesalers at the annual conference.
Speakers representing wholesale include Booker’s Charles Wilson, and FWD Council members Steve Parfett and Steve Barnett. The supplier’s perspective comes from Dan Robinson of Heineken UK and George Vezza of Nestlé Professional. Other sessions provide data and insight on the retail and foodservice customer base.
The conference is followed by drinks, dinner and the presentation of the HIM Wholesale Awards.
