Execulytics To Offer Retail Tours at the CPMA Convention and Trade Show

TORONTO, CANADA - Execulytics Consulting will offer key retail insights to produce companies at this year’s Canadian Produce Marketing Association Convention and Trade Show; the consulting company’s Senior Vice President and Managing Partner Mike Mauti announced plans to offer personal retail tours at the annual trade show taking place in Vancouver, from April 23-26.

Mike Mauti, Senior Vice President of Client Services, Execulytics Consulting“The CPMA Show is an excellent opportunity to visit retail where it all happens, with the companies that make it all possible,” said Mike. “It’s no secret that there is an important collaborative relationship between retailers and produce suppliers, sometimes that collaboration needs to be encouraged and what can be more encouraging than touring stores?”

Execulytics noted, in a press release, that it will offer tours throughout the week-long trade show, including:

  • Monday, April 23rd, 1 p.m.  – 5 p.m.
  • Tuesday, April 24th, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. and 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
  • Wednesday, April 25th, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.
  • Thursday, April 26th, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m.

The tours, guided by Execulytics Retail Expert Paul Thompson, will be available in two distinct options—each visiting four retail grocery stores. One option will allow participants to gain insights into a number of mainstream national supermarket chains such as Superstore and Sobeys. While a second tour option will visit a collection of retailers that cater to an upscale or organic customer base like Whole Foods and Urban Fare.

Paul Thompson, Retail Expert, Execulytics Consulting“Although these retail tours are going to be a great time, there is a greater purpose to them,” noted Paul. “Our intention is that the tours will bring produce suppliers closer to retail, Vancouver style. In essence, we hope they will help bridge the gap between suppliers and retailers.”

The two different half-day tour options will, according to Execulytics’ press release, allow companies to tour relevant stores while being free to discuss their observations amongst themselves as they pertain to their own business strategy.

“All retail tours are a great experience,” added Mike, “but having the comfort level to discuss private business-related issues right on the store floor, while it’s happening can sometimes add to the overall value of the tour.”

Tours will be available in parties of 4-6, 7-10 or more than 10 people, and interested parties can book tours at www.execulytics.ca/cpma-retail-tour. Execulytics encourages interested parties to book early to ensure availability and to avoid missing the April 11th deadline.
