Ireland’s Convenience Retailer Summit to reveal speakers

The world-class roster of speakers featuring in the most exciting retailing conference of the year will soon be revealed, according to the event’s organisers.

Ireland’s Convenience Retailer Summit will inspire and motivate the local industry when it takes place in the Clayton on Burlington Road, Dublin, on September 6.

The day-long event follows on from the successful Ireland’s Forecourt & Convenience Summit 2016, and will feature inspiration as a key theme to help convenience retailers seize the market’s growing opportunities.

“The market is bouncing back but that doesn’t mean the benefits come automatically,” said event organiser and Ireland’s Forecourt & Convenience Retailer publisher, Bill Penton.

“There are a number of incredibly exciting speakers from the cutting edge of US retailing, national experts, and very high-profile motivational speakers already involved.

“This will be the most inspirational event of the year. As the market grows, it’s essential your business grows with it, and this event will give convenience retailers of all sizes the latest information and insights to help them grow ahead of their competitors.”

The Summit involves three strands, including an inspiring conference, an innovative Trade Exhibition, and the annual Ireland’s Forecourt & Convenience Retailer Awards.

A full roster of speakers is expected to be released in the coming weeks, so ensure to follow the Ireland’s Forecourt & Convenience Retailer Facebook and Twitter handles to be among the first to find out.

A mecca for Irish and UK retailers, there will be special focus on independent grocers, supermarkets, symbol groups, delis, wholesalers, cafes, food to go, restaurants, off-licences, and all types of neighbourhood, convenience and forecourt retailers.

Over 400 guests attended last year’s event, where the keynote address was provided by All Blacks rugby legend Sean Fitzpatrick.
