Retail’s Best ‘relaxed’ format a hit with top businesses
Retail’s Best, a series of business networking events, has employed a new format that proved to be a hit with top retailers and suppliers.
In a relaxed and non-competitive environment, industry leaders exchanged ideas and best practices to drive business.
According to a company release, the eventâ€™s unique format of being â€˜run by retailers, for retailersâ€™ saw Jonathan James (James Retail), Vicky Hennessy (Penny Petroleum), Mark Barnard (JSK Group), Chris Woodruff (Darsham Service Station), and Arjan Mehr (Londis Bracknell) share the stage to lead a lively debate on quality, brands or no brands, and knowing one’s customer.
â€œThe key advantage of Retailâ€™s Best is that itâ€™s a more focused event so we have more time to spend with colleagues and suppliers and more opportunities for networking, talking to people on a one-to-one basis that we really need to speak to. Ultimately we get more business done,” said Aziz Patel, owner of the Brookfield Group.
Retailâ€™s Best was organized by Concept Events with the support of Spar, Country Choice, Coca-Cola, Jet, Tokheim, Orbis Tech, P&C Services, Pastorfrigor, and Zapper.
Petrolplaza was one of the event’s media partners.
