Which retailers are leading the way with innovative private-label products? You can find out next month, at PLMA’s 2017 World of Private Label International Trade Show, which will be held at RAI Amsterdam from 16 to 17 May.
There, the winners of PLMA’s 2017 International Salute to Excellence Awards, honouring retailers for innovation in private-label products and packaging, will be announced.
The awards presentation will lead off the pre-show seminar programme, held on Monday 15 May at the RAI Exhibition Centre.
The second seminar presentation will be 'The Future of Private Label', by Alexander Kottke, a research analyst at Euromonitor International. He will examine the key trends, such as e-commerce, retail consolidation and discounting, that will have a significant impact on retailer brands in the years ahead.
'Understanding the Millennial Generation' will be the final presentation at the pre-show seminar programme. Richard Cope, a senior consultant at Mintel, will analyse how retailers and suppliers can successfully appeal to this new generation of shoppers.
Admission to the seminars is complimentary to all registered visitors and exhibitors. Presentations are translated into English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
The 2017 World of Private Label International Trade Show will be the largest to date, featuring nearly 2,500 exhibiting companies, including nearly 60 national and regional pavilions on the trade-show floor.
The theme for this year’s show is 'Helping Consumers', focusing on how retailer brands bring value and innovation to shoppers across Europe and beyond.
