14 extra members for Confex so far this year

Confex UK has signed 14 additional members so far this year, which will help it reach its turnover target of £3 billion by 2020 (up from £2.83 billion over the past 12 months).

Managing director Nicky White added that the group was “firmly on course” to achieve its goal.

White – confirming figures published in Cash & Carry Management last month – was speaking after the group’s fifth Member Incentive, held in Malta and attended by nearly 100 delegates.

Held over four days, the event included 532 business meetings between suppliers and members.

The social programme offered delegates a tour of the capital Valleta, water sports, a cultural trip to Mdina and pilates sessions.

Plans have already been made for a similar trip next year – to Lake Maggiore in Italy from 6-9 September. Invitations will go to members showing the highest growth across selected suppliers for the February-April 2018 trading period.

In the first half of this year, group turnover with Confex’s top 20 suppliers rose by 24% and volume increased by 18%.
