The Evolution of Consumer Spending
Scott will begin by exploring how retail is changing beyond recognition. Consumer spending habits are forcing change – and Pharmacy, Health & Beauty and Convenience Retailers are blurring the traditional lines of retail. Drawing on examples from the US and Japan, Scott will show how to adapt to the new landscape, how changing a store and extending the offer can increase footfall and ultimately, discuss ways pharmacy retailers can deliver better profits.
Commercial Director, The Orange Square Company
I have spent three times as much on a trade show before, and not got close to meeting half as many groups as I have in the last couple of days.
Director, Healthwise Pharmacies
One of the few places where real interaction between chosen buyers and suppliers has a chance to flourish, and a genuinely efficient way to get through a range of meetings with potential business partners.
Pharmacy Superintendent, Rajja Chemists
We met a considerable number of suppliers which would have taken us months to meet. The networking was very good where we shared some fantastic ideas across groups.
