Plans for The IPG’s first-ever Conference and Annual Dinner are well underway and the event that will be held at Mercedes-Benz World in Weybridge on November 3, will bring together Independent plumbing merchants and suppliers to showcase The IPG’s exciting three-year plan.

The theme for this year is ‘Unlocking the future for Independent Plumbers Merchants’ and the conference will focus on the challenges that Independents face and show new insights into how Independents can succeed and shape a positive future.

Robin Beal, Founder and Managing Director said: “We believe that the Independent Merchant should have a voice and a better chance to compete in the market given all the challenges facing them today. We offer access to an extensive membership network and strive to gain better buying terms and build sustainable growth for all. I’m looking forward to seeing The IPG members and suppliers in Weybridge for what I am sure will be an informative and entertaining conference.”

Robin concluded: “The IPG team are lucky to have such a steadfast group of members and suppliers alike and I reiterate our marching slogan, that we are stronger together.”

The action-packed interactive day includes high-speed track and passenger drives, F1 simulator experiences and a large exhibition space for The IPG suppliers to meet members.

The Dinner will be hosted at the nearby Hilton hotel at Cobham and will include evening entertainment.
