Multichannel Wholesale in 2016


B2C ecommerce is very well established with numerous best practices identified – when it comes to B2B, ecommerce is far less mature; but it presents strong potential for becoming a significant part of the overall customer offering.

Join IMRG, at the launch of a new report from Maginus and Wolseley – Multichannel wholesale in 2016: the magic in the mix – focusing on the role of digital in B2B, what learnings can be taken from B2C and the burgeoning potential threat from major well-established online-only businesses in this space.

This report focuses on three core areas – customer expectation and behaviour, B2B propositions and how to execute change in a digital future. It is being launched at an exclusive dinner event where you will get in-depth insight and knowledge from key industry players who have contributed to the report.
