FWD is going Fast Forward to the future of wholesale with an assessment of the revolution in distribution at its annual conference on June 28.

Wholesalers, suppliers, service providers, economists and futurologists will give their visions of our evolving sector, and share their advice for grasping opportunities as this dynamic route to market moves into a new era. 

FWD Director of Communications David Visick said: “FWD is celebrating its 100-year anniversary in 2018 and in that time it has seen constant evolution in its members’ support and service to their retailer and catering customers, but the rate of change is now faster than ever. At a time when economic and technological changes are creating new expectations and new possibilities, we will be looking ahead at the obstacles to growth, and the opportunities to diversify the wholesale offer.”

 Speakers will address the changing trading environment, the impact of Brexit, the lessons to be learned from new competitors and futureproofing the sector through building teams and developing talent.

Fast FWD>> The Future of Wholesale takes place at The Football Association’s headquarters, St George’s Park, Burton-on-Trent on June 28 2018. The business sessions will be followed by networking over drinks and dinner, and England v. Belgium in the World Cup.
