General Information

PLMA’s annual Roundtable Conference helps member manufacturers and retailers to learn about the latest trends, identify opportunities in private label, and understand competitive challenges. Speakers include market research specialists, retail executives and trade journalists.

The Roundtable is held annually in late February. The venue rotates among major European cities. This year’s programme will be held in Dublin, 22-23 February 2018. Ireland was selected because it has become a microcosm of retailing trends throughout Europe. Both Aldi and Lidl have carved out significant market share for themselves while traditional retailers like Dunnes, Supervalu and Tesco have counterattacked with their own brands to maintain customer loyalty. The programme in Dublin will also focus on the ever-growing challenge from E-commerce not only in Ireland but across all major European markets.

PLMA’s Roundtable Conference is a unique event, bringing together manufacturers, retailers, trade press and industry consultants to examine and discuss the issues facing private label.

Programme details and speakers will be announced in the Fall.
