Craig Brown

PLANS are underway for the Scottish Wholesale Association’s 2018 Annual Conference with Darren Goldney, managing director of Today’s Group, soft drinks company AG Barr’s commercial director Jonathan Kemp, Craig Brown (pictured), retail sales director at Glasgow-based wholesaler JW Filshill and Ruth Davidson MSP, leader of the Scottish Conservatives, among the speakers.

Gary Maclean, Scotland’s National Chef, will also be speaking at the conference along with founder of the SuperJam sugar-free jam brand, Fraser Doherty.

The 2018 Annual Conference – entitled Bridging The Gap – will also incorporate a number of panel discussions.

Kate Salmon, executive director of the SWA, said: “It’s all about ringing the changes and ensuring that our annual conference remains relevant to members and suppliers – their time is at a premium so we must provide a platform for networking and create an environment that is conducive to encouraging discussion and sharing information.

The conference will take place at Crieff Hydro from June 8-10. All queries should be directed to Kate Salmon or Jo Mathieson on 0131 556 8753.
