The theme for our Convention will be The Power of Connectivity with the emphasis on all participants from every aspect of our industry coming together for the benefit of the industry and our respective businesses.
There will be a focus in line with this theme on the importance of supply chain and marketing as businesses grow and expand into this connected, ever-changing and increasingly digital landscape within which we now exist.
