Embracing the digital approach, the Convenience Conference has moved to a week-long broadcast series of webinars, panels and social media content beginning on Monday, 05 October 2020.
The Convenience Conference will focus on highlighting the key trends that are impacting the sector – sharing market leading insight, as well as showcasing best in class examples. Sessions across the week will cover the convenience shopper and how their expectations have changed, sustainability and the impact 2020 has had on the trend, convenience store delivery and a crystal ball look to the future. We will also be showcasing the deserved winners from The Convenience Awards throughout the week.
There are some inspiring speakers lined up for the sessions, including Nick Read, Group CEO at The Post Office, Nick Brown, Head of Sustainability at Coca-Cola European Partners, Sally Wake, Commercial Director at Company Shop and Phil Ponsonby, Group CEO at The Midcounties Co-operative. We have many more amazing speakers still to announce over the coming weeks.
In a joint statement, William Reed managing director of retail & manufacturing Lorraine Hendle and Lumina Intelligence managing director Jill Livesey said: “This truly will be an event that showcases and celebrates the very best people, retailers, companies and initiatives from across the UK convenience retail market.
“We would like to thank our sponsors, speakers, and delegates for their continued support and patience during this challenging time.”
