It's finally signed, and often in the last days of February, or even on the evening of Monday 1 March 2021! It is such a pity that this 1st March 2021 did not fall on a Friday, as it did two years ago, leading to a well-deserved weekend for key account managers and buyers. Because from the morning of Tuesday, March 2, 2021, without transition, another era began! That of the actual execution of the agreements. Completing commercial negotiations by 1 March, with the signing of the annual agreement for the coming year, is in fact both a legal constraint and a source of relief for both sales managers on the supplier side and buyers on the distributor side.
