Retailâ€™s Best is launching the next networking evening in its series of Retailâ€™s Best Forecourt & Convenience Partners on 23 March 2017.
Over 1,000 convenience stores and forecourt sites will be represented at the event, which includes short breakout sessions, canapÃ©s and drinks reception, gourmet meal, entertainment and a â€˜smart exhibitionâ€™ demonstrating products and services.
Convenience store and forecourt site operator Moiz Vas founded the event, which brings together a select group of retailers and suppliers, giving them a chance to share ideas. He said: â€œRetailâ€™s Best will give all its suppliers the chance to get to know potential new customers, understand their needs, and make a great impression.
â€œItâ€™s also a fantastic opportunity to hear whatâ€™s new in the industry by allowing new business relationships to develop by bringing suppliers and retailers together in a relaxed, non-competitive environment.
â€œWith a high-profile guest list of more than 100 senior decision makers, there are real opportunities here for both retailers and suppliers to develop closer ties and grow their business. Itâ€™s also one of the best opportunities for new supplier entrants in the marketplace to introduce themselves to the movers and shakers in our industry.â€
Spar UK managing directorDebbie Robinson added: â€œNow is a fantastic time for Spar to participate at Retailâ€™s Best Convenience & Forecourt Partners, as the forecourt sector is absolutely key to our strategy for growth.
â€œAs well as hundreds of successful independent retailers, Spar also works with the biggest names in the industry.
â€œFor retailers, a forecourt offering has so many benefits â€“ and we are excited to share these with petrol dealers and retailers at the event in March.â€
Retailâ€™s Best Forecourt & Convenience Partners will be held on 23 March at Chateau Impney, Worcestershire.
