More than 700 delegates will gather in Aviemore in September for what will be one of the biggest retail events to be held in Scotland this year.

The 2022 tradeshow from CJ Lang & Son Ltd, the leading Scottish wholesaler and Spar convenience retailer, will be the company's first face-to-face event in over two years.

It will be held at the Macdonald Aviemore Resort on Thursday, September 22 with the company describing the venue as the perfect destination in Scotland and one that is sure to be a huge hit for those attending.

Colin McLean, Spar Scotland's chief executive, said: “Our 2022 tradeshow will be a great opportunity to engage once again with a live audience.

"We will have over 180 national and Scottish suppliers turn their stands into exciting showcases for their products.

"By taking part in our trade show, our suppliers will be able to bring their innovative products to the attention of the largest group of independent retailers to visit a trade show in Scotland.

“We are looking forward to welcoming our estate of independent Spar retailers and company owned staff, key personnel from Spar Scotland, Spar UK and Spar International, to what promises to be a sellout event.”
