During one of the morning business sessions, Kirsten Hughes, Travel Counsellors’ Commercial Director, told delegates: “To protect your business and earn the margin you deserve, how you buy a product is as important as how you sell it. That’s why, as well as having access to the widest choice of suppliers in the industry, we are dedicated to developing the very best dynamic packaging system, enabling you to take control of what and how you sell, and grow your businesses in an ever competitive commercial market.”
