Harpers to helm Bellavita retail debate

Published:  01 June, 2017

Harpers is heading to Bellavita this month, where we will be chairing a panel discussion on ways to penetrate the UK off-trade.

The three-day annual expo which shines a spotlight on Italian enology and gastronomy is heading to the Business Design Centre in London’s Islington this month from 18 to 20 June.

The show brings together the trade to get the jump on future Italian food and wine trends, discover NPDs and bring together buyers, chefs, sommeliers and hoteliers,

There will also be a focus on routes to the UK off-trade, with Harpers shaping part of the debate.

A focused session dedicated to cracking multiples and independent retailers will be held on the last day of the fair, chaired Harpers’ regular contributor, Angela Mount.

Mount will bring her extensive experience working closely with the UK off-trade in her former role as head of wine buying for Somerfield, and her consulting work helping wine producers to develop styles and strategy for the UK market.

The panel will be made up of leading multiple and independent retailers who will discuss changes in customer demands and shopping habits, and give their views on what retailers need to do to improve the shopping experience for consumers.

Join Harpers and Angela Mount at the panel discussions on Tuesday, June 20, at 12pm.
