Consumer Goods Conference: The future of Pricing in Europe
Tuesday April 11th, 2017
Kasteel De Hooge Vuursche, Baarn
13:30 - 17:30

With increasing consumer confidence and economic growth in the vast majority of European countries, branded consumer goods manufacturers are in a strong position to increase revenue and profits. However, the industry landscape has structurally changed over the last years and Pricing Power is no longer self-evident.

Price transparency is increasing and sales/distribution channels are starting to blur. In some cases customers are becoming competitors. At the same time, market consolidation is leading to larger and more professional purchasing departments. As a result, many companies see their growth paths slowed down by price erosion, exposure risk, and inefficient trade investments due to historically grown pricing structures.

These opportunities and threats call for increased European leadership in pricing and revenue management with a clear sight on the legislative agenda. Successful companies limit value leakage and harmonization risks by focusing on commercially and legally defendable strategic price structures between channels, countries and international (key) accounts. This also includes capabilities across consumer prices, promotions, trade terms and key account management.

During this conference we will share our insights on European pricing. Between sessions, there will be opportunity to address your challenges and meet other participants informally.

Industrial Sales & Pricing Seminar 2016: Monetizing your value delivered
Tuesday November 15th, 2016
Kasteel De Hooge Vuursche, Baarn
14:00-18:00 uur

Simon-Kucher’s annual Global Pricing Study revealed that 8 out of 10 companies experience increasing price pressure. Whilst cost cutting programs are largely exhausted, 87% of top managers recognize that their pricing strategy is not optimal and contains untapped improvement opportunities.

Too often, we see industrial companies struggle to realize the full potential of their products and services because a robust value pricing & selling strategy is missing. Prices are often historically grown and cost-plus, instead of based on value and willingness-to-pay of customers. Our experience shows that smart solutions such as portfolio & price optimization, innovative price models, discount differentiation and value selling provide substantial revenue and margin improvements.

During the Industrial Sales & Pricing Seminar, Simon-Kucher & Partners provided insight into pricing & value selling as key levers for profitable and sustainable top line growth. Our marketing, sales and pricing experts shared inspirational learnings, practical know-how and proven best practices with a focus on the full Industrial Goods & Services value chain.

During sessions and breaks there was room for dialogue, questions and meeting industry colleagues.

31st Strategic Pricing Conference: Pricing on the Executive Agenda
Tuesday November 1st, 2016

Kasteel De Hooge Vuursche, Baarn
13:30-17:00 uur

How do you ensure profitable and sustainable top line growth when faced with increasing price pressure? Simon-Kucher’s annual pricing study has shown that 8 out 10 companies are facing increasing price pressure. This combined with 60% expecting costs to increase, return on sales are set to fall.

Although pricing is more and more recognized as a key profit lever, many companies have yet to give pricing the place on the executive agenda it deserves. Successful companies focus on smart quantification of their value, rigorously defending their value in the market, and consistently monitoring their pricing across customers, channels and countries. A company’s pricing policy can make or break the bottom line.

In this conference Simon-Kucher & Partnersfocused on today’s main challenges in pricing, but also presented their vision on trends in pricing for the future. Our marketing, sales and pricing experts – and our guest speakers from Basic-Fit and Liberty global – shared their recipes for success and show how leading organization deal with these challenges. They shared learnings, practical know-how and best practices to provide you with valuable eye-openers and relevant take-aways. During and between the sessions there was room for dialogue, questions and meeting industry colleagues.
