Nisa Announces First Ever Virtual Expo for 2020
Nisa will host a virtual Expo in October that is set to include all the usual features of its annual event at Stoneleigh together with some additional interactivity only available through a virtual platform.
The Nisa Expo has been at the heart of Nisa for more than two decades, providing opportunities for suppliers and partners to interact, help each other grow their businesses, strike deals and learn more about the benefits of being part of the Nisa/Co-op group of companies.
The company says Nisa’s first ever virtual exhibition promises to offer similar benefits, with opportunities for one to one supplier meetings, virtual store tours, special deals, category insights and interaction with Nisa colleagues, partners and suppliers.
The decision to host Nisa Expo virtually was driven by a desire to support partners and suppliers significantly impacted by the Covid crisis through a difficult and challenging time for the industry, while providing a safe environment for all participants to interact.
“The events of 2020 have meant that the independent retail environment has been extremely challenging but the sector has really stepped up and through working closely with our supplier base we have been able to differentiate ourselves from the competition and gain market share,” said Nisa CEO Ken Towle.
“We felt that now more than ever it was important to work together with our suppliers, partners and Nisa head office teams to really showcase Nisa and the full range of Co-op own label products. We are really proud to create the first ever Nisa Virtual Expo that will include all the usual features of Stoneleigh along with some new elements that are only possible through a virtual platform.”
Registration for the Expo will open in the coming weeks at which point further details will be revealed about what partners and suppliers can expect from the event.
