The finalists for The Convenience Awards 2022 have been revealed.

A panel of judges have worked through the entries and created a shortlist for the top awards in the convenience channel.

With 13 retailer categories to be decided, these awards are the most sought-after in the industry, with previous winners describing their victory “like scoring a Premiership goal!”. editor Aidan Fortune praised the finalists for this year’s awards. “Judging The Convenience Awards is one of the privileges of my job – it’s so exciting and humbling to see so many amazing retailers working hard for their communities and innovating with new products and services. It may sound like a cliché but it really is so difficult to create a shortlist for each category and our judging panel of experts have had to work hard to pick top retailers for this year’s awards.”

Brought to you by, Lumina Intelligence and The Grocer, The Convenience Awards 2022 takes place on Tuesday 13 September at The Londoner Hotel in Leicester Square, London. 

As well as the retailer awards, seven research-based categories will be awarded, powered by shopper and retailer research powered by Lumina Intelligence’s Convenience Tracking Programme, the largest piece of convenience research in the UK. 

And if that’s not enough to convince you, the event will be attended by the brightest stars of the convenience sector, making it a can’t miss networking opportunity.
