DEVELOP South Africa CEO, Marc Pillay, recently attended the annual global DEVELOP Distributor Summit, which was held this time in the Canary Islands, a Spanish archipelago off the coast of northwestern Africa, 100 kilometres west of Morocco.

Tenerife, the largest island, is dominated by the sometimes-snowy active volcano Mt Teide, which has its own astronomical observatory and is part of Teide National Park.

The summit, which was held at the five-star luxury Hard Rock Hotel, spanned two days - one full day of conference sessions and the other for sightseeing and local vineyard excursions. During the first part of the conference, delegates looked at global trends and innovations - and their impact on the workplace of today and tomorrow, along with an outlook on DEVELOP's product portfolio and new marketing tools.

Aside from the South African representation, 65 other delegates from DEVELOP businesses across the globe were present at this year's summit, including Australia, Morocco, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

Commenting on the event, Pillay says: "This summit provided us with an excellent opportunity to review the past year, and to see what DEVELOP has in store for us for 2018. We were able to take away key information on product, marketing and market trends, in support of the continued evolution of the DEVELOP South Africa business, and further support our dealer network."
