Convenience Summit 2015

About this event

IGD’s 2015 Convenience Summit is a brand new event on 4th June designed for everyone who wants to improve their performance, knowledge and connections in this fast paced, fast growing channel.

IGD events will always bring you up to speed with the latest developments that impact you and your business and the Convenience Summit is no different – offering new data, practical insights and personal perspectives to help you plan your way to growth in convenience.

On top of all that, this year, we’re delivering even more:

  • NEW - Retailer breakout sessions – one hour deep-dives in to help you get under the skin of specific retailers’ strategies so you can trade better with them
  • NEW - 'Meet the retailer’ networking – speedy one-to-one appointments, booked via our new event app, so you can make the elevator pitch and set up your next moment of contact
  • NEW - An evening reception – head to London the night before the Summit and kick your networking off early over food with other industry leaders and David Jones, Supply Chain Director, Waitrose who’s guaranteed to challenge the way you think about business

Hundreds of companies attended IGD’s Symbols and Convenience conferences last year, taking countless nuggets of inspiration back to their businesses. Whether you attended last year or not, the Convenience Summit is designed for you if growth in the channel is on your agenda...
