Distributor Summit - Spain

Olaf Lorenz Head of Marketing: Konica Minolta Business Solutions Europe addressing delegates.

Always set against a striking backdrop, this year’s DEVELOP Distributor Summit was no different, hosted in Spain’s third largest city, the beautiful Valencia.

Marc Pillay, CEO at DEVELOP South Africa, a wholly owned Bidvest company, represented the African continent at the annual conference, which also welcomed delegates from France, the Baltics, Germany, Switzerland, Turkey, Ireland, and even the tiny principality of Liechtenstein.

Focusing on the concept of “Sharing visions”, attendees looked at the continuing positive results of the DEVELOP brand and its worldwide successes over the past year and also received an update on the organisation’s roadmap, including the introduction of upcoming products and concepts as well as new DEVELOP marketing tools.
