Our sold-out conference, Ddelivering Change, takes place on June 29.
Managing price inflation and learning from new competitors will be among the topics discussed by a record attendance - including more than 60 wholesalers - St George’s Park, Burton on Trent.
It’s the wholesalers who dominate proceedings, with contributions from Booker, Bidfood, Bestway, Blakemore, Country Range Group, JJ Foodservice, Hyperama, Harlech Foodservice, Kentish Match Co, Savona Fine Foods and Birchall Foodservice. They will be revealing what they do to help suppliers maximise sales into the 400,000 retail and foodservice customers supplied and supported by FWD members.
We also have expert analysis on the current and future trading environment, including Brexit and forthcoming legislation. Santander’s Chief Economist Barry Naisbitt and Martin Vander Wayer, business editor of The Spectator.
We’re also devoting time to the sector's response to the threat of disruptors in the supply chain, and asking what we can learn from Amazon, Deliveroo and Just Eat.
On top of that, we have brand new pieces of research to reveal - the HIM Wholesale Tracking Programme, FWD’s investigation of Retail Beyond Convenience and a major new assessment of wholesale’s economic and social contribution to the UK.
In the evening, join us for drinks, dinner and the HIM Wholesale Awards.read more
