The Today’s Group will hold its fourth annual Speed Dating event, where suppliers and wholesalers meet face-to-face to discuss how best they could work together, on September 9-10.
Suppliers and wholesale members will be paired up for a series of 15 minute one-to-one trading sessions, changing pairings every time the ‘bell rings’. The suppliers will bring three agenda points to every meeting, and must have at least one ‘wow factor’ big-hitting deal available, which is above and beyond any usual promotional offering.
“The speed dating event has become an invaluable event in our corporate calendar,” said Steve Dixon, Today’s Group trading controller. “Its success is proven as is its popularity with suppliers and wholesale members. Last year orders were booked for 120,000 cases for imminent delivery, 92 new wholesaler accounts were opened with the suppliers, and 144 follow up appointments were also made between suppliers and wholesalers.”
