Now in its 70th year, the Shop and Display Equipment Association (SDEA) has recently voted Alan Pegram (CEO Global Display) as its President for the third year running as the organisation continues to thrive and develop under Alan’s leadership and the hard work of its Executive Council.
The SDEA’s primary role is to provide a competitive advantage to its members by promotion to, and leads from, prospective retailers and specifiers.

“In my 25 years of working with Retail we have seen many challenges, and it looks as though things are not going to get any easier. However in some ways the challenges to the Global Economy and the growth of Omni Channel will force us all to work harder to revitalise the store environment, working with, as opposed to against technology to enhance the shopping experience. The SDEA and its members such as Global Display are well placed to play a pivotal role in this mission.” Alan Pegram
Global Display have supported the organisation for many years in conjunction with a host of major suppliers to the retail industry, benefiting from the new client links and networking events, which enables companies such as Global Display to keep abreast of the latest market trends.
