Summit17 brings retailers, suppliers, and industry experts from around the world together to explore the successes and challenges of the industry and discuss new ideas retailers can walk away with.
This year’s Summit will be divided into three thought-provoking sessions, each segment with a guest speaker and followed by a panel discussion.
The first session will be kicked off by Scott Hartman, the President and CEO at Rutter’s, a chain of convenience and forecourt stores with 65 locations in the United States, as well as hear from Nick Read from Nisa. Food industry expert Jane Milton will then speak on market and industry trends in the sector and how retailers can capitalise on these.
The audience will hear from One Stop CEO Tracey Clements in the second session, Simply Fresh retailer Kash Khera, and also Spar retailer Thomas Ennis.
The final session, the Ideas Studio, will include a presentation from ACS Commercial Director Paul Chamberlain, who will share some of the most innovative displays, products, and features in convenience stores from around the world.
Battle of the Best will be hosted by retailers Raj Aggarwal and Avtar Sidhu, who will share a video of their road trip to film successful retailers across the country.
The day will wrap up with an address from international business speaker David Meade, who has worked on operational development strategies with organisations that include Apple PwC, Harvard in Boston, the Cabinet Office in Westminster and Bank of America.
