On 1 December 2021, the EDA’s 3rd Digitalisation Forum and 1st Data Awards took place to celebrate excellence in product data and the day was attended by over 100 delegates from UK wholesalers and manufacturers.
The event was designed to help UK wholesalers future-proof their businesses by sharing the latest thinking on the ecommerce landscape, their customers’ buying habits, and their options for digital systems that will improve and automate their operations.

The event also looked at the importance of working with manufacturers to obtain the highest quality product data to drive sales in and how electrical wholesalers can learn best practice from other sectors when creating their digital strategies.
