CHFA West offering retailers strong business program

 

chfa logoIt’s been a busy holiday season. Now that you’ve taken a moment to enjoy reading the latest issue of CNHR, please also take a few minutes to visit chfa.ca/west for the most up-to-date information on this year’s CHFA West.  The show is being held at the Vancouver Convention Centre on February 22 to 25 and there’s no question the event will live up to its theme, Connecting the Industry.

More opportunities

What can retailers expect? We’ve created even more opportunities for you to network both on and off the trade show floor.  And, we’ve developed one of the most comprehensive conference programs to-date.  One of the sessions that will be of interest is titled Death by Amazon. It’s a jarring headline that was published in the Financial Post. The article led with “Amazon.com Inc.’s purchase of Whole Foods Market Inc. last month has pushed an already nervous retail sector into a collective panic not seen since the great recession.” But the real headline according to Bruce Winder should be “how retailers can withstand the onslaught.”  Bruce (co-founder and partner at the Retail Advisors Network), is often interviewed by leading TV media outlets such as BNN, CBC, CTV News, CP24, Global News and has contributed to the Globe & Mail, the Financial Post, The Toronto Star, Reuters, Bloomberg, Adweek, The Calgary Herald and the Ottawa Citizen just to name a few. We’re excited to be able to bring his expertise to the program.

Sharing insights, solutions

Another highlight for 2018 is the Retail Leader Round Table where retailers will share challenges, insights and solutions. Be sure to take advantage of this opportunity to make connections with retailers who share the same experiences.  There are a whole host of other great topics including trends and global influences, marketing to millennials, organics vs. “x-ponics” and more.  Check it out at chfa.ca/west and register today.  •

FREE  FULL or HALF  PAGE AD! 

Our next issue – July-August – is our annual Supplier Profile issue.  This is the only issue of the year where you have your chance to tell your company story to retailers.  

 Choose either a full or half-page profile

Here’s how it works: It’s basically a two-for-one – when you buy a full page ad, you get a second full page for free to tell retailers about your products, your staff and what makes you different from your competitor.  The same applies if you buy a half-page ad: you get the second half page for free to tell your story.  It’s the chance for you to give store owners, managers and buyers an inside look at your company, and help them to get to know you a bit better.
