Bestway Wholesale’s retail division has shared details of its second annual Retail Showcase event as company owners look to provide independent retailers with insights into the latest industry trends. 

Taking place on Wednesday May 15 at the Coventry Building Society Arena, a handful of Bestway’s drinks suppliers, including Diageo and Budweiser Brewing Group, will be in attendance. Around 800 retailers are expected to attend from the Bestway family, such as Bargain Booze and Costcutter, as well as prospective retailers. 

For the first time, the Showcase will feature an Innovation Zone, offering retailers insights on how to increase profit, improve sales and reduce costs. Attendees will also be shown the latest retail technology.

Bestway Wholesale managing director, Dawood Pervez, said: “The Showcase is a major investment into our retailer estate but is one which we know our retailers value as it supports their future growth and profit.

“It’s often hard for independent retailers to find time to discover the latest trends and insights to support their business but here’s a real opportunity for them to look ahead and identify great new products and services from suppliers, whilst sharing ideas with like-minded independent business owners, who inevitably face the same challenges.”
