As a busy agency it’s sometimes all too easy to keep pushing forward, and not take a moment to reflect on all the achievements and progress made over the last 12 months, as well as taking a moment to align on focuses and priorities for the year ahead.

On the 13th September, Co-op & Threefold held their 2019 Media Centre Supplier Conference at the Curzon Cinema in Bloomsbury and were pleased to welcome 114 attendees across over 60 global FMCG brands to review the highlights of 2018 and look forward to 2019.

Speakers at the event included:

  • From Threefold, Sam Knights, Managing Director; Lee LeFeuvre, Partnerships Director; Chris Goddard, Client Manager; and Georgia Cotter, Client Manager.
  • Anthony Jackson, Media Centre Manager at Co-op
  • Chris Hulme, Senior Marketing Planning Manager.
  • Andy Phelps, Director of Supplier Engagement and Change Integration at Co-op
  • Ben Grant, Yogurt Buyer at Co-op
  • James Lamplugh, Sales Director at Tactical Solutions
  • Elise Jibson, Senior Client Manager at Threefold, and Jess Markowski, Commercial Controller at AB InBev

Each of the speakers shared an update on their specific areas of the Co-op business, covering everything from campaign highlights over the last year and the latest news on compliance, to the launch of new media channels and Midcounties societies. The team also provided detail around Co-op’s 2019 brand and media centre plans, as well as the new customer segments.

The day concluded with breakout sessions, where we asked for live feedback on several key areas. We are on a mission to transform shopper media and having this honest and open interaction with clients is just one of many ways we are looking to achieve this. It’s our belief that the more we can work hand in hand with Co-op and brands to align on priorities and objectives, the more cohesive and joined up our campaigns will be, driving greater value and meaning for shoppers, brands and Co-op.
