Putting the retailer at the heart of the event
Retailâ€™s Best, the brainchild of independent forecourt retailer, Moiz Vas, will be putting the retailer at the heart of the event.
Evolved from a series of tried and tested â€˜customer nightsâ€™, hosted for market leaders in the petrol and convenience sectors over the past three years, previous guests like Dee Sedani, Susie Hawkins, Hasmukh Thakrar and Aziz Patel are now looking forward to coming to the first Retailâ€™s Best event on 29 May.
This refreshing new concept in events struck a chord with Londis retailer, Dee Sedani, News R Us: â€œThis will be a fantastic opportunity for networking with other retailers and suppliers and an easy way to learn about new products and services. And the food at Moizâ€™s events is always out of this world!â€
Susie Hawkins, director at the successful top 50 indie, family-run, Simon Smith Group, with seven sites in and around Gloucestershire adds: â€œThe format for these events is great. Theyâ€™re held at a time thatâ€™s convenient for retailers, away from the distractions of work. Iâ€™m really looking forward to this first Retailâ€™s Best event.”
Hasmukh Thakrar, director at HKS Retail, one of the leading independent operators of filling stations and convenience stores with 27 sites nationally and ranked 7th in the top indies list says: â€œThis innovative event gives us the perfect opportunity to meet with fellow retailers and suppliers, to talk informally in a relaxed environment and share ideas and solutions to help develop and grow our business. Weâ€™re pleased to see the customer events are getting bigger and look forward to Retailâ€™s Best in May.â€
His views are endorsed by BP and Nisa retailer Aziz Patel, of the top-50 indie, Batley-based Brookfield Group: â€œThe atmosphere at these events is great – relaxed and informal, yet professional. And thereâ€™s no hard sell. The food is delicious too. If the previous customer nights are anything to go by, then Iâ€™m really looking forward to Retailâ€™s Best!”
