The session will seek to uncover the depths of the sector, looking at how c-stores have changed over the years, how they are now embracing current trends and how they are expected to evolve in the future.

This year, we are building on our success by launching the most interactive Summit conference ever with a new app dedicated to the event and a challenge to retailers to bring together more great ideas about convenience stores in one place than has ever been achieved before.
