With the 2019 Natural Health Trade Summit drawing closer, be sure not to miss out on the independent retail event of the year.
The 2019 offering is shaping up to be the most buoyant yet, with a bigger range of exhibitors than ever, and a higher than expected number of retailers set to attend.
The event is held in association with the National Association of Health Stores (NAHS), and is designed for independent health food retailers only, who are invited to come together for a day of business, networking and learning.
Taking part at The Principal Hotel, in Manchester, on October 13, this year, we also benefit from the sponsorship of Bee Health, Tree of Life, CSY, and Optima, while The Health Store is sponsoring our welcome drinks event the night before the show.
So, what can be expected from this year’s event?
We’re excited to be presenting a diverse mix of exhibitors, which will be in excess of 100, from well-known brands in the market, including A.Vogel, Viridian, Pravera, ADM Protexin, Natures Aid, Pharma Nord, Terranova, BetterYou and Absolute Aromas, to newer brands to exhibit, such as Cannakinetic, Celtic Wind Crops, Elenzia and Neubria.
In addition to the exhibition, the event will also host a series of informative roundtable sessions, all designed to help you as independent retailers learn and network in an informal environment to discuss ideas and initiatives that can help to grow your sales.
The themes for the roundtables are currently in the process of being confirmed and are due to be announced in the next few weeks. Keep an eye out at www.nhtsummit.co.uk for full details and timing.
Networking is the word
We know how important it is for you as retailers to network with both fellow health food store owners and also your suppliers, and this informal event is the perfect vehicle for that.
As already mentioned, there is a free welcome drinks reception, being held at The Principal Hotel, on October 12 and all are welcome.
In addition, a free three course buffet lunch will also be laid on during the day, giving retailers plenty of time to catch up over some healthy food. Refreshments are also served, free of charge, through the course of the day.
Keep an eye out for our September issue of Health Food Business, in which we will be revealing more details about the event, and specific themes for the round table sessions.
Pre-registration for the event is essential and cannot be done on the day. Registration is free and can be completed by visiting www.nhtsummit.co.uk.
