RETAILERS RANK TRUST ABOVE SERVICE AND PRICE WHEN IT COMES TO CHOOSING A SUPPLIER PARTNER

Retailers rank trust above service and price when it comes to choosing a suitable supplier partner, according to a poll carried out by Retail’s Best, a fresh, new concept in events that takes place on 26 November at the Radisson Blu, London Stansted. The Retail’s Best poll showed that 50% of retailers state trust as the number one criteria when choosing a suitable supplier partner, compared to 36% for service and 14% for price.

Next week, leading suppliers and a high calibre of retailers will gather together for the second in a series of Retail’s Best events, where suppliers from the convenience and forecourt industries will have the opportunity to listen and engage with retailers and forecourt operators to show that they are the partner of choice and the brand to trust.

Retail’s Best is an event run ‘by retailers, for retailers’ – the inspiration of independent retailer and forecourt operator, Moiz Vas, who has succeeded in single-handedly bringing together some of the biggest players in the industry.

The partners for Retail’s Best Convenience & Forecourt Partners are Best-one, JET and MICROS. Official supporters of the event include Tokheim and The Jordon Group, the Petrol Retailer’s Association and 10 cherry-picked exhibitors for the smart exhibition, which has attracted interest from Europe and America.

Says Vas: “We understand the time constraints faced by retailers, so Retail’s Best events are held in the evening, away from the distractions of work. We ensure that all attendees are treated to a lavish drinks reception and exquisite dining experience, providing effortless networking opportunities in a relaxed and informal setting”.

Retail’s Best evolved from a series of tried and tested customer nights that Vas’ events company has hosted for key players in the retail sector over the last few years. More events are planned for 2015.
