Leadership From Six Continents:  A Capacity Crowd Of Charter Exhibitors Announced For The London  Produce Show And Conference

The other day in a piece, titled British And International ‘Thought Leaders’ Panel Announced For The London Produce Show And Conference, we unveiled the incredible diversity of intellects that would grace our Perishable Pundit “Thought Leader” panel, and for some time, we have been laying out the intellectual case for The London Produce Show and Conference, as in this piece titled REVOLUTIONS IN UK RETAILING Is Tiny Whole Foods Setting An Example For London Retailing? New Retail Dynamics To Be Discussed At The London Produce Show And Conference, and we have been highlighting speakers such as Bruce Peterson and Lisa Cork.

Yet the heart of the event is a trade show, and we are both honored and humbled to unveil our roster of Charter Exhibitors

It takes some guts for a marketing director to take a chance on a new event. Much as in days gone by they used to say that nobody ever got fired for buying IBM, so no marketing executive ever got fired for sticking to the same old shows. But, of course, no marketing executive ever gained competitive edge for his organization by just doing what others do.

This show is different. The great continental-scale events are extraordinary, but there is a value in intimacy as well. Not having to have a calendar set in 10-minute increments… having a smaller scale that allows the luxury of in-depth conversation in search for mutual points of connection.

This floor is incredibly diverse — from specialized players such as the Fair Trade Pineapple Association of Thailand to giants such as Dole and Del Monte. But what it mostly has is leaders — the kinds of companies that want to be pushing the edge, that want to not be left behind.

We have worked with many firms and we find that this characteristic, this willingness to innovate, is the unique characteristic that leads these companies to adopt practices that enable their trade partners to advance. In other words, those companies that have embraced The London Produce Show and Conference are the kinds of companies that embrace innovation and, as such, everyone gets an edge who trades and associates with them.

A roll call please. Ladies and gentlemen, the capacity-busting roll call of the Charter Exhibitors of The London Produce Show and Conference:
