The SWA stages two key annual events that are unique in the UK and present us with a real point of difference over other trade associations.

We also run a number of training courses, workshops and interactive sessions covering a wide range of topics. Keep checking the website for updates.

'Sharing the Vision' event – 28th March 2019, Hampden Park, Glasgow

Colin Smith will present his vision for the Scottish Wholesale Association. The day will combine presentations on our key pillars, along with a focused business-building workshop aimed at forging stronger links between our wholesale and supplier members.

This half-day workshop in Glasgow will help you manage your time more effectively, identify ways to save time and demonstrate how you can be better organised to achieve peak efficiency. It will also help you to understand the importance of, and techniques for, setting and achieving goals.

The Scottish Wholesale Association's Annual Conference is one of our two key events and the 2019 event will take place at Crieff Hydro in Perthshire from May 31st-June 2nd. We can now reveal our line-up of speakers, which includes Chieh Huang, chief executive of the US-based online wholesaler Boxed.

Scottish Wholesale Achievers is our annual awards initiative and returns to the Sheraton Grand, Edinburgh on Thursday, 13th February 2020.
