TV presenter and radio DJ, Vernon Kay, will be at this year’s VOW Green Light event, which the company has deemed ‘the biggest and best yet.’ The gathering will be taking place on 7th December in Birmingham’s Hilton Metropole hotel.
Vernon, a former model best known for hosting ITV shows Family Fortunes, Beat the Star and Splash!, will present awards recognising outstanding suppliers, products and resellers at Green Light’s gala dinner. He will also compère a game, based on Family Fortunes, involving teams of resellers, and deliver a DJ set at the after-show party.
Adrian Butler, VOW Managing Director said, “the conference will have the theme Expect More and will outline ways in which we’ll enhance our service to resellers in 2018. Green Light will also cover key initiatives we’ve undertaken this year, in areas such as delivering innovation, creating opportunities for resellers and improving their experience of dealing with us, as we’ve progressed towards our aim of becoming a world class wholesaler.”
Alongside Vernon, visitors will enjoy a conference and an exhibition of suppliers’ products. VOW says reseller registrations to attend this year’s Green Light already equal 90 per cent of last year’s total, with the event still 10 days away. Over 400 reseller representatives and 70 exhibitors are expected to attend.
External speakers Nigel Risner and Geoff Ramm will also feature this year. Motivational speaker, Nigel has picked up a host of awards including Speaker of the Year by business leader development specialists The Academy for Chief Executives, the Executive Committee and Vistage, plus commercial execution software experts Footdown. He is also one of only six UK-based recipients of the Award of Excellence from the Professional Speaking Association.
Geoff is the creator of business concepts Celebrity Service and OMG Marketing. He has been acclaimed as an expert in devising highly successful marketing ideas and designing memorable customer experiences. In addition to providing entertainment, his presentations aim to make audiences engaged and leave inspired.
Adrian added, “Nigel’s Green Light address, entitled How to Create Impact for You and Your Team, will challenge attendees to expand their horizons, embrace opportunities that await them and aim to have them dreaming of achievements which may have seemed impossible before.”
“Geoff will ask the audience whether, when their competition goes in one direction, they follow or head the other way. Making the point that, to become memorable, they must stand out from the competition, he’ll tell the audience how to market their businesses, so customers think of them not only the next time they’re looking to order but in 30 days, 30 months or even 30 years.”
This year’s gathering will be sponsored by backers including office product manufacturer Acco Brands, consumer goods maker BIC, multinational conglomerate 3M, filing products manufacturer ExaClair, speciality packaging and envelope provider Bong and transnational food and drink supplier Nestlé and many more.
