Retail’s Best is proud to announce four global giants in the world of convenience retailing and motor fuel to partner the next in the series of Retail’s Best events, which takes place on Thursday 19 March 2020 at Chateau Impney, Worcestershire. They are:

  • Esso – exclusive motor fuel partner
  • Co-op – exclusive symbol group partner
  • TSG – exclusive EPoS partner
  • ReThink – exclusive health & wellbeing partner

The event will bring together some of the most influential forecourt and retail operators in the UK, representing over 3,500 sites between them, to tackle issues that are relevant to our industry in these challenging times, including crime, sustainability and food theatre.

Moiz Vas, retail entrepreneur and founder of Retail’s Best, explains: “Our common goal is to ensure our convenience stores and forecourts remain vibrant and commercially viable for the future.  Collaboration is the key to success, for suppliers, retailers and petrol dealers to pro-actively work together and Retail’s Best is best-placed to facilitate that.”

Tom Boundy, Account Manager, Esso Retail Fuels explains: “Retail’s Best offers us the unique opportunity to engage with new and existing customers in a collaborative forum, where we can discuss industry developments and explore how we can support your business.”

Martin Rogers, head of new channels at Co-op adds: “We are delighted to be partnering with Retail’s Best for the first time, bringing together the country’s leading forecourt and convenience retailers. We are excited to meet potential new partners who share the Co-op values and principles to become part of the Co-op community and have access to Co-op own brand product.”

Attending for their fifth event, Steve Watts, Sales Director, TSG UK says: “Retail’s Best really does offer the best opportunity to meet the industry’s leading retailers and decision makers all under one roof – a unique opportunity that gives our busy industry the perfect platform to network whilst enjoying great food, fantastic entertainment and developing those all-important contacts.”
