Blog: Petah MarianSeeking "tomorrow's solutions"

Petah Marian | 11 October 2010

I'll be attending the IGD Convention today (12 October), which is setting out to find "tomorrow's solutions" to issues facing the grocery industry, such as the sluggish economy, sustainability issues and improved public health.

The creme de la creme of UK grocery retailing will be there, as well as representatives from some of the top manufacturers.

I'll be looking forward to see how people respond to (relatively) new Morrisons CEO Dalton Philips in one of his first appearances in the role, as well as speaking to the Co-operative Group's Tim Hurrell about the company's strategy.

Also, I'll be looking forward to meeting as many of you as possible, so if you see me around tomorrow, please do say hi.

P.S. - I'm not really blue.
