Grocery industry salutes retail heroes

The Asian Trader Awards Return

The premier awards event in Britain’s Convenience calendar is back with another glittering Central London ceremony to celebrate the best of independent neighbourhood and local retail ...

The 31st annual Asian Trader Awards – the UK’s most prestigious event recognising achievement in Convenience – will be held in NOV 2020 at a top central London venue.

Last year’s special 30th anniversary Awards was truly memorable and this year’s will be an even celebration, shining a light on the very best in the independent retail channel.

Store owners everywhere, you need to mark the date in your diaries now and make sure all the shifts are covered on the big day! The Asian Trader Awards will showcase how local and independent retail serves and transforms local communities, and will salute and reward your hard work and dedication across the UK.

The message the awards sends out is loud and clear: Britain needs Convenience more than ever, and Convenience is offering the country more than ever before.

From banking services and post offices to food-to-go and delivery, with new franchises, repairs and laundry services among many others increasingly being offered, the Convenience store is truly the linchpin of its neighbourhood. The sector as a whole is stepping up as defender and main support of local life as the High Street suffers – and as the needy and elderly in more isolated locations depend ever more on their local shop and its staff.

This event attracts the biggest names in independent retail organisations, CEOs of leading manufacturers and wholesalers, government ministers and celebrities. Join us for a fabulous night of wining, dining and winning!

Nominations will soon open for this year's Asian Trader Awards and we want to hear from as many independent retailer heroes as possible – stars working miracles at the heart of their communities.

“Who is your Convenience hero?”
