Working Together To Grow Business Together
Retailâ€™s Best is a pioneering new way of bringing retailers and suppliers together to grow their businesses. Developed by retailer Moiz Vas, who has a family forecourt business in Norfolk, Retailâ€™s Best is an event â€˜for retailers, by retailersâ€™ and takes place on 29 May at the Hilton Birmingham Metropole.
Says Vas: â€œItâ€™s all about helping suppliers to engage and improve their business with us by understanding our challenges better.â€ Vas has the support of the Petrol Retailerâ€™s Association (PRA) as well as four supplier partners â€“ Londis, MICROS, Gulf (Certas Energy) and Tokheim.
Says Paul Courtney, business development director – Londis: â€œThis exciting new concept in events provides retailers with one of the best networking opportunities this year, to find and share ideas that will drive their businesses forward.â€
MICROS, the leading IT solutions vendor and hosting provider for the retail industry, is also partnering the event. MICROSâ€™ director EAME development, Colin Reeve, adds: â€œRetailâ€™s Best provides something different, something that hasnâ€™t been done before. Weâ€™ve worked with the team before and they consistently deliver a truly spectacular event, thatâ€™s innovative and with true professionalism.â€
Top executives, dealers and independents from across the UK will come together to â€˜experienceâ€™ the event, which includes plenty of time to meet with the supplier partners, network with fellow retailers, enjoy a showcase of 15 exhibitors, a signature dining experience plus entertainment for around 200 invited guests.
Retailâ€™s Best has evolved from a series of tried and tested â€˜customer nightâ€™ events, hosted for market leaders in the petrol and convenience sectors over the past three years, including Londis and Torex.
