A host of wholesale speakers lined up to speak during two-day event

Some of the wholesale industry’s biggest names, including Bestway MD Dawood Pervez and Unitas’s Darren Goldney are gathering to speak at the first ever IGD Live event next week.

Being held on 6 and 7 November at Tobacco Dock in London, the event is focusing on the commercial issues affecting the industry today and in the future, while checking out the latest trends driving these changes.

Pervez and Goldney are joined on the list of wholesale speakers by Dhamecha Chief Executive Pradip Dhamecha, JW Filshill CEO Simon Hannah and Pricecheck Managing Director Debbie Harrison.

For the first time, IGD is bringing together its existing Category Management, Convenience, Digital Commerce and Food-to-Go channel events under one roof, with the Wholesaling Summit part of the second day.

As well as offering great insight from some of the sector’s most knowledgable people, the event also provides plenty of networking opportunities throughout both days.

Elsewhere across IGD Live, speakers include the likes of Mars Foods’ Global President for Food, Drinks and Multiples, Fiona Dawson, Tesco CEO UK & ROI, Jason Tarry,  Co-op Retail Chief Executive Jo Whitfield and Sainsbury’s Food Commercial Director, Paul Mill-Hicks.

“Growth opportunities exist both within, and across, grocery channels,” said IGD’s Global Insight Director, Ben Miller. “By combining the very best of IGD’s established channel events with a fantastic line up of keynote speakers for everyone, we’ll help equip our delegates with practical insights to find that growth. We work in one of the most vibrant, diverse and exciting industries in the world, and I look forward to celebrating this at Tobacco Dock in November”
