ACS has announced the shortlist for the 2023 Technology Showcase, taking place on 16th May at the Everyman Broadgate cinema in London.
The Technology Showcase provides a unique opportunity for retailers to find out about new technology solutions that have either been recently launched or will be launched in the future by suppliers.
This year’s Technology Showcase will be headlined by an exclusive discussion with Ben Wishart, Global Chief Information Officer at Ahold Dehaize, one of the world’s largest food retail groups. The showcase will also hear from Mike Callachan, CEO of Snappy Shopper, on the future of delivery services and other opportunities for the convenience sector.
The following companies were selected by ACS’ Independent Board and have been shortlisted to demonstrate their product or service at the event:
- Point Four
- Syndico (VoCoVo)
- Herbert Group
- HL Display
The event will be co-chaired by Sarah Johnson from ACS and independent retailer Rav Garcha. There will also be a panel of retailers discussing the showcase entries and retail technology issues: Ian Lewis (Spar Minster Lovell), Fiona Malone (Premier Tenby) and Ramesh Shingadia (Budgens Southwater).
ACS chief executive James Lowman said: “Investing in technology is an integral part of modern convenience retailing, as retailers seek out ways to make the business more efficient, more appealing to customers, and for futureproofing the store for years to come. We’re delighted to have the shortlisted companies involved with this year’s Technology Showcase, where they’ll have the opportunity to put their solutions forward to an expert panel of retailers.”

The event will be followed by the Hosted One2Ones at Balls Brothers, Austin Friars. Hosted One2Ones is the business speed dating event which provides retailers and suppliers with the opportunity to network build new and exciting relationships. The 'dates' are short and focused meaning retailers have enough time to understand the supplier's brand and the supplier to find out about the retailer's store.
Our Hosted One2Ones event is open to Club, Premier Club and retailer members of ACS.
