The Event

We are delighted to invite you, our suppliers, back to this flagship event.
It’s a time to join together and celebrate the year we’ve had and the plans for the future. Our commercial team will raise a glass to all you’ve done together, and we couldn’t do it without you.
Please use the booking tab to obtain your seats or tables.

2021 was a sell out so book early to avoid disappointment.

If you’ve not been before, here’s how it works;

Co-op suppliers of any kind are invited to buy seats and tables at this industry famous event.

Suppliers are then free to use those tickets to invite whomever from their business that they would like to attend. Suppliers are also invited to use a few of their tickets to invite members of the Co-op teams to attend with them and sit at their table. For example, food suppliers will usually invite their Co-op buyer to sit with them. The invitation must come from the supplier directly, however the event organisers are happy to arrange introductions if needed.

Please bear in mind that some Co-op colleagues receive multiple invites and will only be able to accept one invitation.

The Co-op executive team are only available as guests through a sponsorship booking.

The cost of your ticket will go towards; the one-of-a-kind event, the A list entertainment, the bespoke 4 course dinner, unlimited premium drinks and a very sizable charity donation.

You will also see for the first time the winners of the Undiscovered competition
