More than 200 leading suppliers of convenience products and services are expected to take stands at the Convenience Retailing Show at Birmingham’s NEC on March 19-22, 2006.

The show gives visitors the chance to sample new products and provides information on trends and technology. Attractions include the interactive Ideas to Take Away, where 15 retailers will share their secrets for increasing sales.

The Food 2 Go section will this year be set up as a themed sandwich bar, offering samples and playing host to a series of demonstrations and workshops, while the Buyers Lounge will provide the perfect environment for visitors to network with both new and existing contacts.

The show will be open on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday from 10am-5pm and on Wednesday from 10am-4pm. To register for free, go to
