Independent retailer brings together some of the biggest names in the forecourt industry for unique event

An independent retailer in his 30s, who has a family business of forecourts and c-stores in Norfolk, has single handed got the support of some of the biggest names in the forecourt industry for a unique event to listen to retailer’s needs, giving independent retailers the opportunity to ask questions and seek answers to help drive their businesses forward for the future.

The retailer is Moiz Vas and the event is Retail’s Best.

Gulf (Certas Energy), the largest independent fuel and lubricant distributor in the UK, is the official Motor Fuel Partner. Says Ramsay MacDonald, retail director of Gulf: “We’re very excited to be part of the first Retail’s Best event, which promises to be innovative and spectacular. We were looking for a new way to communicate our plans and benefits both to existing and hopefully new customers and this concept stood out for us. We think it could be a unique event and we have high hopes that it will be the perfect forum for networking, building business and will become a regular feature in the industry calendar.”

The world-leading manufacturer and servicer of fuel dispensing equipment, Tokheim, is the official Pump & Dispensing Partner at Retail’s Best. Says Adrian Beeby, UK sales director: “Having seen previous events, hosted by the team behind Retail’s Best, we’ve been impressed with their unique approach. We were waiting for the right time to work more closely with them on a bespoke event and we’re confident that Retail’s Best will be the springboard for us to drive business and develop new opportunities.”

Other partners include MICROS and Londis and the event is also officially supported by the Petrol Retailer’s Association (PRA).

Retail’s Best will take place on 29 May 2014. Some 200 invited guests from across the UK will come together for this unique opportunity, where knowledge and ideas will be shared and exchanged by these leading business producers and distributors, in a relaxed and informal setting.
