We’ve just packed up after a fantastic NHT Summit, held for the first time Bristol. And what a success it was.
The event attracted independent retailers from across the country, with 130 stores pre-registering for the Bristol show.
Proceedings kicked off with a drinks reception on Saturday, which was the perfect way to relax and catch up with industry colleagues and friends – and fire us all up for a busy day of networking on the Sunday.
There was a real buzz around the new venue from the off, and good steady traffic throughout the day. It was a great to see so many familiar – and new – brands making the journey to Bristol, including a strong showing from Health Stores UK Partners, A. Vogel, Olivit, Viridian, Faith in Nature, Good Health Naturally, Take on Goliath and Terranova (Bio-Nature).
On the Health Stores UK stand we were offering potential new members a fantastic package of offers from our Partners. And we had a whole range of goodies to help spread the word about Membership and the impressive – and growing – range of benefits it offers to independent retailers. Mugs, pens and even vegan cupcakes all sported the Health Stores UK logo! A big conversation starter was the presence on our stand of Cheryl Thallon’s brilliant book How to Open & Run a Successful Health Store, which Members can download for free on the Health Stores UK website. It was great to speak to so many of you at Bristol and update you on our latest activities and initiatives with Partners.
Congratulations to the whole team Target Publishing for delivering another terrific event.
