The Checkout Conference, in association with Rabobank, takes place today at the InterContinental Hotel, Dublin, commencing at 9am. Given the news about BWG Group's bid to acquire Londis, BWG chief executive Leo Crawford's presentation is likely to be one of the most-anticipated on the day.
Crawford presents at 10.30am, as part of a morning session that includes presentations from P&G Ireland, Planet Retail and Nielsen.
Speakers include Leo Crawford, Group Chief Executive, BWG Group, David Cotter, Country Manager, P&G Ireland, Mike Hemingway, an award-winning global branding expert, John David Roeg, Senior Analyst on Consumer Foods, Rabobank International, Robert Gregory, Global Research Director, Planet Retail and Mike Watkins, Head of Retailer and Business Insight, Nielsen.
In addition, a discussion panel, ‘What Next For Brands?’ will feature discussion on the ‘nuts and bolts’ of successful brand development.
Commenting on its sponsorship of the Checkout Conference, Kevin Knightly, Chief Executive of Rabobank Ireland said: “We are pleased to sponsor the Checkout conference for the fifth year. As the world’s leading global food and agribusiness bank, Rabobank continues to invest huge resources into developing rich sectoral knowledge, which we pass on to our customers.
“This year’s conference will feature a keynote address by Rabobank’s John David Roeg, Senior Analyst on Consumer Foods, who will deliver cutting edge research on the growth of online grocery and its impact on food manufacturers and processors.”
