Registrations for the 2015 Convenience & Impulse Convention & Expo opened today. C&I 2015 will be held at a newly constructed expo venue at Sydney Showgrounds, Olympic Park, on Wednesday 4th and Thursday 5th March.
As well as Australia’s biggest independent trade show, C&I 2015 offers two separate morning Convention Sessions based on the theme “Moving from BEST practice to NEXT practice”. These sessions not about where the best stores are now, but where the best stores will be in several years’ time. These sessions, with six expert speakers, will give retailers and opportunity to glimpse the future and to take their stores in a fresh direction.
The Thursday morning will feature a special Small Stores Breakfast, with a panel of four industry experts who will be making presentations on the key problems that confront the industry as well as taking questions from the floor.
On the Wednesday evening there will be the popular “Retail Sales & Cocktails” function in the Board room overlooking the sports arena, which is adjacent to the main show entrance.
Admission to the C&I Expo and the Convention Sessions if free of charge. Tickets for the “Retail Sales & Cocktails” function are $100 and tickets for the Small Stores Breakfast are $25. The 2015 Convenience & Impulse is open to retailers and suppliers of all banners and brands, but is for trade-only.
