2017 Program here
Australia's $12 billion office products industry is in the midst of a corporate upheaval with leading contract players and the nation's dominant office supplies retailer being recalibrated under new ownership.
Innovative marketing strategies will be a priority for all players in the new environment, which will be further impacted by a full frontal assault on the local retail market by Amazon.
With digitalisation also accelerating the need for operators to move into new areas and adjust their business model, it's a critical time for many in the industry as private equity interests disrupt the status quo.
For independent resellers, the challenge is to make the most of the opportunities that will arise as the industry adapts to the new order at the 'big end of town' and the looming threat of an online giant.
Stationery News LIVE: Breaking Boundaries (In a Changing Office Products Landscape) will explore how resellers, retailers and suppliers are responding to enhance their revenue potential in innovative and exciting ways.
This year's program will highlight the opportunities that are presented by engaging with trends around cause-related marketing, environment-friendly, sustainable and creative new products, supplier diversity in supply chains and global online threats.
More details to come.
