WHY:

Because the sharing of best practices at the distributor tier is falling behind the type of benchmarking brewers and retailers are doing. Despite innovations like the KEG groups, there's been precious cross pollination between distributors of different brands, sizes, market shares and markets. While you may think a 20 million multi-market case distributor may not have anything to learn from a million case distributor who operates in one contiguous market, we've surprisingly found the opposite.

Here are just a few topics we'll explore at our inaugural event: saving money in the warehouse, delivery, sales structures, merchandising, draft line cleaning and management, fleet management, cooperage management, POS management, human resources and talent retention, the latest in technology management, and allocating resources to the right places to gain the best ROI. We will bring together the top experts in each field — in addition to top performing wholesalers — to present the types of things that make them more money, retain quality talent, and structure a company properly to make it better for the next generation.


WHO:

Do you have P&L responsibilities? Are you responsible for the amount of shrinkage in a warehouse? Do you manage the fleet, including GPS? Do you perform driver check-in and make the deposit each day? Are you an area manager doing routing and running EFT payments for each account? Are you responsible for your firm's route accounting system? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you need to attend, because we will have key insights and best practices for you.


WHEN:

The inaugural Distributor Productivity Summit will begin on Monday July 31st with a reception. Tuesday August 1st will include an entire day of general session with networking opportunities at breakfast, lunch and a closing reception.
