What our visitors say

"NCS2016 has been absolutely brilliant – there’s been a lot of new innovations and I’ve met a lot of new contacts I didn't know before who can all help my business"
Raaj Chandarana, Tara’s News

"National Convenience Show is something I look forward to every year – it’s THE place to be if you’re looking for new products or suppliers"
Subhash Patel, Family Choice Superstore

"NCS016 has again been a fantastic source of innovation, inspiration and technology that will help our business grow sale and profit in the next year – I’m already looking forward to NCS2017. I think having the show co-located with other shows is amazing, its really valuable for us to spend two days out of the business with everything we can learn from convenience and the Farm Shop & Deli Show."
Paul Cheema, Malcolm’s Store

"NCS2016 has been fantastic – there have been loads of different companies I’ve not seen before and it’s great to come to a one-stop shop of suppliers of various products and services and get all the information you need under one roof’’
