Book Your Place at the 2016 Local Shop Report Launch

Time is running out to book your place for the 2016 Local Shop Report launch, taking place on 7th September at Hotel Football in Manchester. The Local Shop Report is ACS’ flagship research project, bringing together information from trusted sources in the convenience sector with brand new information about the people running stores.

This year marks the fifth release of the Local Shop Report, which has helped to transform the way that decision makers in Government view the contribution of the convenience sector. The Local Shop Report provides comprehensive information on the shops that trade across the UK, the people that run stores, the employees that work in them and how those stores serve their communities. This year, we will publish new information about the investment decisions being made by retailers over the last year.

The 2016 event will feature two panel sessions, where those in attendance will be able to hear from retailers and industry experts on what the findings of the report mean for the sector. Speakers confirmed for the panel sessions include:

  • John Kinney, Todays
  • Dave Thomas, McColls
  • Amanda Jones, Conviviality
  • Baz Jethwa, independent retailer
  • Blake Gladman, him!
  • David Rees, Convenience Store Magazine
  • Tim Billson, IGD
  • Chris Noice, ACS
  • Mike Watkins, Nielsen

Attendance at the Local Shop Report launch is free for ACS retailers. To secure your place, click here.

The Local Shop Report launch will be followed by the popular Hosted One to Ones event, which brings retailers and suppliers together for short business meetings in a relaxed atmosphere. More information about the Hosted One to Ones is available here.
