Wholesale Day 2022

The annual Wholesale Day brings together wholesalers and policymakers. It is your opportunity to discover wholesale, its complexity and its important role in the supply chain.

Following the Commission’s adoption of a proposal to encourage sustainable and responsible corporate behaviour, this year’s event examined Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence. Policymakers and wholesalers debates what the due diligence obligations could mean in practice for businesses across the EU, the potential impact that it could have on doing business in the Single Market and beyond and despite the good intentions, consider if there could be a risk that SMEs are included less in the supply chain.

The 2022 edition took place on 15 June. EuroCommerce was proud to welcome Didier Reynders, European Commissioner for Justice, as our keynote speaker.


Wholesale Day 2021

The annual Wholesale Day provides a valuable opportunity to bring together wholesalers and policymakers to discuss the important role of wholesale in the supply chain.

The 2021 event, organised on 3 June 2021, focused on wholesalers’ contribution to the EU’s post-COVID recovery, to the sustainability transition and the overall economy. Philippe Delpech, CEO of Sonepar, the world’s no 1 wholesaler of electrical goods, gave a keynote speech on the challenges facing wholesalers in a highly volatile economic environment. Panel discussions on circularity and on the role of wholesalers in the economy have highlighted the diversity and range of sectors in which wholesalers operate, the challenges they face and how they address them.
