 AMP Conference

To mark the AMA’s 40th Anniversary the AMA will stage a revised Industry meeting format, the 2017 AMP Conference, with a focus on professional development, while honouring the history of the industry and the individuals that have been at the forefront of its development.

The AMP Conference concept is not centred on buying and selling. It is focused on industry training, professional development and face-to-face time with wholesalers and one that seeks to assist industry leaders in improving their business.

We seek to create opportunities for wholesalers to engage with retailers without the need for a trade display, but via presentations, seminars, sponsored business and social activities.

For more information go to the AMP Conference website.
