    Unitas prepares new-look annual trade show

    Unitas Wholesale has unveiled a fresh new look, feel and name for its annual trade show, taking place in Liverpool on 6-7 March this year: connect24.

    connect24 will focus on the importance of connecting Unitas members to their supplier partners, providing invaluable opportunities to build and develop relationships that will drive growth throughout 2024 and beyond.

    This event builds on the successful Unitas Conference held in September, where delegates heard how the Unitas membership is “Growing Faster” than the wholesale sector, “Reaching Higher” with their continued investments to accelerate growth further, and “Stronger Together” by working collaboratively with supplier partners.

    connect24 has been designed to deliver exciting opportunities for even further growth, including an enhanced out of home presence with leading foodservice suppliers such as Premier and Unilever chefs showcasing their NPD and product sampling. A new attraction this year is the introduction of the On Trade bar area, sampling exciting NPD and demonstrating the “perfect serve”, plus the expansion of the Local Living retail own brand range will be a key feature of the show.
