“The theme for 2024 is ‘Raising the Bar’ and once again we will have a few surprises in store for those attending. Our tradeshow will be supported by business presentations where we will share future plans for our continued growth. The SPAR Scotland Awards will return for a third year, and we will host a gala dinner. The evening festivities will be rounded off with a live band, entertainment, and plenty of dancing.

“With over two hundred suppliers exhibiting this year, this event is hotly anticipated, and we expect demand to be high, so we are urging everyone to register as soon as possible – it will be on a first come, first served basis! This event promises hands-on networking opportunities like no other in the Scottish convenience retail market.”
