PRESS RELEASE

PRA TO BE OFFICIAL SUPPORTER OF RETAIL’S BEST FOR SECOND TIME

Retail’s Best is proud to announce that the Petrol Retailers’ Association (PRA), the major source of information for the petrol-retailing sector, will be an official supporter for the second time following the success of the first Retail’s Best event in May.

Brian Madderson, Chairman of the PRA, says: “The PRA is delighted to support the return of Retail’s Best this autumn as it provides such a unique and exciting industry marketplace for suppliers and retailers alike”.

Retail’s Best is a series of new business networking events that launched this year, uniquely ‘run by retailers for retailers’. It brings together convenience and forecourt operators, owners and suppliers, to work in partnership in a non-competitive environment, geared towards driving real business opportunities.

Designed with the retailer at the heart, Retail’s Best gives an opportunity to meet with people in a relaxed and informal setting and succeeds in attracting a high profile guest list. Taking place in the evening, the event includes short break-sessions, a drinks reception, signature gourmet dining ex-perience, spectacular entertainment and a ‘smart exhibition’, with plenty of time for networking.

The first event in May 2014, Retail’s Best Forecourt Partners, was held at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole and proved to be an overwhelming success, described by guests as “one of the best opportunities for networking and a great investment for generating new business.”

The next in the series of events – Retail’s Best Convenience & Forecourt Partners – takes place on 26 November 2014 in London, Stansted with five of the most dynamic players in the convenience and forecourt industries choosing to partner the event:

  • Bestway’s Best-one symbol group is the official symbol partner
  • JET is the official motor fuel partner
  • MICROS is the official EPOS partner, for the second time
  • Tokheim and The Jordon Group will both be sub partners
