Annual Supplier Conference Set to Kick Off Year of “Inspiring Innovation”
The stage is set for Rite Aid’s Annual Supplier Conference, scheduled Sept. 11–12 at the Sheraton Harrisburg Hershey Hotel in Harrisburg, Pa. The theme of this year’s conference is “Inspiring Innovation,” reflecting Rite Aid’s commitment to making innovation a top priority for the coming year and an integral part of the company’s culture, philosophy and business strategies.
Rite Aid Chairman, President and CEO John Standley and other key members of the executive management team will give conference attendees highlights of the enhancements to the popular wellness+ loyalty card program, our innovative Wellness stores, this season’s flu shot campaign and other exciting initiatives. Supplier partners will also have the opportunity to discuss exciting new promotions and meet with their respective Rite Aid category managers. Annual awards will also be announced and conference attendees will again have the opportunity to receive free flu shots at the conference from Rite Aid certified immunizing pharmacists.
Rite Aid supplier partners whose business name begins with A through K will arrive the evening of Sept. 10 for meetings on Sept. 11, while those whose business name begins with L through Z will arrive the evening of Sept. 11 for meetings on Sept. 12. A cocktail reception will be held for each group on the evening of their arrival. The conference is being held earlier this year to align more closely with supplier partners’ planning schedules for the new fiscal year.
Invitations have already been emailed to the attendees with registration details. Supplier partners who have not received an email invitation should contact their Rite Aid Category Manager.
