The three-day event, which will be held at the NEC (Birmingham) between 18 and 20 April, has confirmed its status as the main English trade fair for the convenience store market. It is an important occasion for understanding recent market trends, changes in consumer trends and for developing new business opportunities. In order to maximise interaction between all the operators within the sector, the National Convenience Show 2016 is scheduled to take place at the same time as another three events: Food & Drink Expo, Foodex, Farm Shop & Deli Show and will involve more than 300 exhibitors.

Adrian Westrup, Cold Service Commercial Director states: “Epta will be present at the National Convenience Show 2016 which is a key event for presenting its innovative, compact and low environmental impact plug-in cabinets for chilled and frozen temperatures. These have been designed to respond to the requirements of the rapidly growing convenience store market in the UK. This is a market that Epta is looking at with great interest as studies have confirmed it now comprises 51,000 retail outlets and had a total turnover in 2015 of £37.7 billion in our Country.*”
