About the Event

NACS Insight Convenience Summit – Europe took place 11th – 16th June 2017

In June, convenience and fuel retailing industry professionals from around the world gathered in Zurich and London for new knowledge, new commercial connections and networking, and the opportunity to discover and discuss new ideas from retail store tours. And, the event featured the popular International Convenience Retail Awards—now in their ninth year, which recognize and promote convenience retailing excellence.

The Zurich segment of the programme (11-13 June) featured high level European retail thought leadership, strategy, trends and economics. Supplier hosted dinners and store visits connected our attendees and showed them what is new in Zurich convenience retailing.

Our main conference days took place in Central London at the St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel (14-16 June). This was the main ‘must attend event’ for the European and international industry with retailer roundtables, international best practice presentations on key trends/developments in the global industry, retailer case studies and our famous awards night programme. Conference highlights in London included:

  • International retailer roundtables – what are the key issues driving your business today and tomorrow?
  • Comprehensive overview of strategic industry developments
  • Best in class international retailer case studies and retail vision video content and much more

The Summit is a modular programme, which means that delegates were able to attend any number of days they wished.
