Landmark Wholesale explore growth from partnership


The Landmark Wholesale Conference 2015 has drawn to a close in Abu Dhabi. This year's conference was held in the UAE state of Abu Dhabi and was attended by over 200 delegates including a record number of suppliers and virtually all members. The conference also featured leading industry figures such as James Walton from IGD, Jill Livesey from him! Research & Consulting, James Lowman from ACS and James Bielby from FWD.
The conference sessions also featured two guest speakers. Sir Clive Woodward OBE, who showed delegates a presentation covering his experience in business and sport, and Katie Piper, whose story about triumph over adversity and the power of positive thinking proved popular with attendees.
The key messages from members, industry experts and suppliers in conference presentations were clear. The economy is back in growth which means that for all aspects of wholesale – retail, on-trade and foodservice – the future looks promising with real opportunities for growth. Furthermore by working together, delegates can maximise upcoming opportunities. However collaboration remains essential for success for all and for the sector as a whole.
As always, the conference ended at the black tie gala dinner where the mystery destination for 2016 was revealed: the stunning lakeside resort of Montreux, Switzerland.
