Wholesaler or distributor finalists announced for Progressive Preschool Awards 2020

The wholesaler or distributor finalists for the the Progressive Preschool Awards 2020 have now been announced, reflecting the flexibility, dedication and focus on continuing to drive business forward which has been seen throughout the preschool industry over the last 12 months.

The finalists reflect the cross-category focus of the Progressive Preschool Awards, highlighting a number of specialist wholesalers and distributors who have all excelled within their space, whether that is toy, nursery, gift or all three.

“Wholesalers and distributors have always been a vital component of any trade retail partnership,” said Rob Willis, publishing director and co-owner of Max Publishing, which owns the Progressive Preschool Awards, “and this has never been more true than when retail is uncertain.”

Retailers rely on wholesalers and distributors for easy access to a wide range of hand-selected products and – particularly over the past year – value them for their adaptibilty, flexibility and nimble service as well as their invaluable industry knowledge. We’re are extremely proud to be able to recognise this with this year’s Best Wholesaler or Distributor Award, the winner of which will be announced on Thursday 12 November as part of our exciting virtual ceremony.”
