ACS to Showcase a Host of Inspiring Ideas at Summit 15

ACS is set to launch the new and highly inspirational ‘Battle of the Best’ section for their Summit 15 conference on 21st April 2015. The annual event, to be held at the NEC in Birmingham, will showcase multiple innovative and motivating convenience ideas from all over the UK.

The ‘Battle of the Best’ will be a reinvention of the popular ‘Road Trip’ video based feature in the second half of the event called the ‘Ideas Studio’. The new and improved video feature will follow two of the finest c-store retailers as they scour the country in search of the most cutting-edge innovations that convenience stores in Britain have to offer.

Over the past few years, the ‘Road Trip’ section has been a source of great inspiration, providing many retailers with a renewed vision of the sector, allowing them to implement these fantastic ideas in their own store. The ‘Battle of the Best’ is hoping to equip retailers with an even larger collection of exciting, modern and game-changing concepts.

Summit 15 will additionally feature some of the most knowledgeable, exciting and motivating speakers within the retail industry. Kris Engskov, President of Starbucks in Europe, Middle East and Africa, BP’s UK Retail Director, Catherine Nunn; and Executive Director of him! Research and Consulting, Jill Livesey, will all be revealing their inside knowledge of how to be exceptionally successful in the retail and services industry.

Past videos from Summit’s ‘Road Trip’ feature can be viewed on ACS’ YouTube Channel here:
