Today’s Retail Realities – What Does it Take to Compete?

The sky-high expectations of today’s consumer have created a revolution in the retail industry, driving changes at an unrelenting pace.

As consumers want it all, and want their needs met right now, the challenge facing retailers is how to position their business to offer a seamless experience and connect with customers in person and online.

This presentation will focus on how manufacturers and suppliers in the tissue paper industry can engage their retail customer by providing additional value - not only in terms of price but also great convenience and exceptional customer service.

We will use examples of “When Best in Class Wasn’t Good Enough”, to illustrate the full value chain retailers consider when making key purchasing decisions.
