Book Now: Two Weeks Until Summit22!

Book your place at our biggest event of the year, Summit22 - taking place in just two weeks at the Vox in Birmingham on 26th April.

This year’s conference will explore how convenience stores are separating themselves from the competition right now, as well as looking ahead to the future at what the sector could look like in 2030.

There are also exclusive masterclasses exploring two high priority issues for the convenience sector. The first masterclass on offer for retailers (sponsored by Juul Labs) will focus on responsible retailing and age restricted sales in store, and we’ve also lined up a masterclass on the upcoming HFSS regulations where ACS Government Relations Director Ed Woodall will run through what you need to know to adapt your store ahead of the change in the law in October.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Ali Jones, Customer Director, Co-op
  • Kien Tan, Director of Retail Strategy, PwC
  • Mike Hollis, Retail Director, Bestway Retail
  • Louise Hoste, Managing Director, SPAR UK
  • John Hoyle, Founder & CEO, Sook
  • Mandeep Singh, Premier Sheffield
  • Corinna Trainor, Trainor Bros SPAR
  • Steven Wilcock, the chair of Trawden Forest Community Centre, Library & Shop
  • Rebekah Duncalfe, Music Psychotherapist, Meraki Creative Therapies
  • James Lowman, Chief Executive, ACS (conference chair)

ACS chief executive James Lowman: “We’re excited to be returning to Birmingham and we have a fantastic line up of insightful speakers confirmed. There’s still time for you to book your place at this unmissable event so that you can be part of the discussion.

“Summit is a highlight in the convenience calendar and is a valuable opportunity for retailers, suppliers and industry experts to come together to explore what’s happening in our sector and to look into the future at the opportunities and challenges that we might face.”
