Shape the Agenda for Summit16 – Send Us Your Views

We want to hear from you about the challenges facing your business and the things you’re looking to introduce into your stores over the coming year. The feedback that we receive will help to shape the conversation at Summit16 on 19th April 2016.

What are the biggest challenges facing your business right now? What is the one must-have piece of kit that will change the way you do business in 2016 and beyond? How will engaging with your customers change in the near future? These are all questions that we want to hear from you about, as well as any comments you have about the legislative challenges you face and where the big opportunities in the market are.

In the countdown to Summit16, we’re also calling on retailers to submit their photos of great in-store ideas that they’ve seen – it could be something you’ve put into practice in your store, or something futuristic being trialed in retail from around the world.

Summit16 is the biggest event in the convenience sector, bringing together retailers from across the UK, with both large and small suppliers, and other industry experts. The packed agenda for Summit includes Wawa CEO Chris Gheysens, SPAR UK MD Debbie Robinson, Leon co-founder Henry Dimbleby, the return of the Battle of the Best with award winning retailers Paul Stone and Dean Holborn, and many more.
