Our attendees had a great experience last year:

It was a great event. The insight from IGD was particularly interesting in the opening session, which helped set the scene for the day. The speakers for Co-op all spoke very well and shared content which will help me work with them.
Business Manager, Nestle Purina

One of the best IGD trade briefings I've been too. Meeting the buyers at category stations was so worthwhile, you don’t get the chance to network like that often, especially cross category.
Commercial Director, Just Crisps / Just Oil Ltd

Fantastic! The best event I've been to in a long time. To get to spend valuable facetime with the Co-op team was so insightful. Everyone at the event IGD, Co-op and suppliers were all fab. 100% will come again.
National Account Manager, Nix and Kix

Very engaging and a great way to be introduced to the Co-op team. Made me truly believe in the aspiration to collaborate. Working hard together, investing together, winning together.
Commercial Director, Kingsland Drinks
