Scottish SPAR wholesaler CJ Lang & Son’s annual tradeshow and conference once again takes place in Aviemore on 28 September at the Macdonald Hotel & Resort and with two hundred (200) FMCG suppliers attending, the organisers have announced that all exhibitor space is now sold out!
Colin McLean, CEO of CJ Lang & Son, said: “We are grateful to all our suppliers who are supporting us in many ways at this event. It is exciting to see the exhibitor space full already particularly given that the event does not take place until September. That gives us confidence that suppliers feel they get value for their money in terms of our event. That is important to us, ensuring our suppliers have a productive time at this business focused event.
“We have several suppliers sponsoring different areas across the event including Headline Sponsor Walkers and Coca-Cola who are sponsoring our Chillout Zone.
“It is a huge task putting together Scotland’s largest convenience retail tradeshow, but our team is doing a great job. This year all exhibitors will be in one area within a large tent structure on the grounds of the resort in Aviemore.
“Delegate numbers are huge in terms of attendance, and we are looking forward to having the opportunity to tell everyone about what has happened in our business over the last 12 months and highlight some of our future plans.”

• Independent community retailer of the year – sponsored by Budweiser Brewing Group
• Company owned community store of the year – sponsored by Graham’s the Family Dairy
