The culmination of this year’s NBG Conference saw the presentation of the annual NBG Supplier Awards on Wednesday 20th November at the event’s Gala Dinner.
Drawing together around 600 partners, suppliers and guests, NBG’s 2019 Conference was held in Glasgow from 19-20 November under the theme of ‘Maximise Sales’. The grand finale of the event was the presentation of awards to some of the group’s key suppliers, recognising the achievements of the outstanding individuals, brands and businesses in delivering stellar service to the Group’s merchant partners.
Awards were presented to suppliers from each of NBG’s eight Category Management Teams after votes from partners were counted. In addition, special Awards were given for the NBG Brand of the Year and, in a new category, Most Innovative Supplier of the Year.
