Join me at Velocity: The My Private Brand Conference

    Private Brand, Velocity ConferenceWe’re just under 60 days from Velocity: The My Private Brand Conference as a subscriber to My Private Brand I would like to personally invite you to attend our first ever My Private Brand conference.

    Running September 13 – 15, 2017, at the Omni Hotel in beautiful uptown Charlotte, NC, Velocity is bringing together My Private Brand subscribers and other industry leaders to accelerate the pace of change and uncover private brand’s potential to win.

    With the recent announcement of Amazon’s acquisition of Whole Foods, the opening of the first Lidl stores, and the rapid evolution of the customer in the age of Google, private brand has never been more important. The speed of change and the increase in competition is rapidly forcing retailers to transition from private label knock-offs to building consumer informed differentiated brands.

    • Walmart
    • BJ’s Wholesale Club
    • Fresh Direct
    • Staples
    • Giant Eagle
    • Big Lots!
    • Boxed.com
    • Circle K
    • Petsmart
    • Office Depot
    • Lowe’s Foods.

    Attendees will walk away with ideas you can immediately put into action to grow your business and brands.

    I look forward to meeting each of you in Charlotte

    Best Wishes
