PRESS RELEASE

RETAIL’S BEST ATTRACTS KEY CONVENIENCE & FORECOURT PLAYERS TO SECOND EVENT

They say success breeds success and Retail’s Best, a new series of business networking events, is proving just that with Tokheim, one of the world’s largest providers of fuel retailing solutions and the Jordon Group, a leading shopfitting contractor of independents and symbol groups, supporting the event for the second time. They will join other key players in the industry, Best-one, JET and MICROS, to work together in partnership at Retail’s Best Convenience & Forecourt Partners on 26 November in London, Stansted, which is once again officially supported by the Petrol Retailer’s Association (PRA).

Says Adrian Beeby, UK sales director, Tokheim: “Retail’s Best provides a refreshing and exciting format. It’s a formula that’s proved extremely successful for engaging with both new and existing clients, as well as participating alongside strategic suppliers in the industry, which is why we’re delighted to be supporting another Retail’s Best event.”

Paul Jordon, managing director, The Jordon Group adds: “We were exhibitors at the first event in May and were very sceptical at first. But seeing the calibre of retailers at Retail’s Best made it an excellent show for us and we’re coming back for the second event this year, this time as sub partners.”

Inspired by independent forecourt retailer Moiz Vas, Retail’s Best is an event that’s ‘created by retailers, for retailers’, putting the retailer at the heart. Says Vas: “These events attract a high calibre of retailers with the focus on bringing together suppliers from specific industries in a unique and non-competitive environment. Our formula for success is to create the perfect environment to enable them to spend quality time with decision makers to offer business inspiration and build new connections.”

Invitations to the next Retail’s Best event are being sent out this week, inviting convenience retailers and forecourt operators to join informative break-out sessions hosted by the partners, followed by a drinks reception and stunning banquet with entertainment, a smart exhibition and plenty of opportunities for networking.
