NEG Conference & Independents Day 2017

Following the great success of the coming together of our two conferences we are continuing to do it all again this November -  with one important difference - WE HAVE MOVED!

This years event will be held at the the Ricoh Arena outside Coventry. As in recent years we have kept the NEG Conference, iDay and iNight under the one roof and the iShow exhibition continues to be free-to-attend over the 2 days. 

It has been over 40 years ago since James Gulliver, one of the founders of modern Supermarket retailing, first delivered the seemingly obvious statement that “retail is detail”, but it still holds equally true today. Following on from the popularity of last years theme 'How to be a Retail Champion', we plan to delve even deeper into some of the key themes raised by last years speakers. 

Once again this year's programme is as relevant to the front-of-house team, as it is the professional team and we encourage owners to bring along members of their support team.

Whilst the emphasis is on business there will also be plenty of CET scattered across the 2-day programme.
