    Bestway announces Retail Showcase 2024 details

    Bestway Retail, part of Bestway Wholesale, the UK’s largest independent food and drink wholesaler, has announced details of this year’s Retail Showcase 2024.

    The Retail Showcase 2024 will stage the biggest gathering of its retail customers and supply partners alongside its specialist retail team to collectively support and help drive further growth and margin for its retailers. It will take place at the Coventry Building Society (CBS) Arena on May 15 from 10.30am 4.30pm.

    The Showcase, which is in its second year after a highly successful event in 2023, saw more than 600 retailers join together with the Bestway Team and supply partners, to learn, share and grow. Over 800 retailers are expected to attend this year’s Showcase from Costcutter, best-one, Bargain Booze and Extra Local symbols and fascias, as well as interested parties and prospective retailers who are considering joining the Bestway Retail family.

    There will be 140 valued partner suppliers exhibiting and highlighting NPD opportunities, including Diageo, Budweiser Brewing Group, CCEP, Britvic, Red Bull, Suntory, AG Barr, Mars, JTI and Philip Morris Ltd – to name but a few.

    As the only symbol retailer in the industry with a store format for all retailer types and customer personas, the Retail Showcase 2024 will be arguably the largest of its kind.

    Retailers can enjoy interactive events, experiential zones, and food tastings, incorporating ‘perfect serve’ masterclasses, cocktail-making and pairing sessions to help them drive customer engagement.

    There will be live demos, presentations on best practice and the opportunity for retailers to participate in workshops, as well as engaging in networking events with other independent retailers, alongside suppliers and Bestway colleagues.

    There will be exclusive Show deals for retailers to take advantage of, and the chance to win £1,000 store credit, with two runner ups winning £500 each.
