A limited number of places remain for our seminar on the last big deal in British grocery. The half-day seminar - which we are calling What Price Safeway? - takes place at the Intercontinental hotel in London on Wednesday, February 12.

The Grocer has teamed up with industry experts to offer key insights on the ramifications of such a deal to those most affected by a sale of Safeway.

Speakers include former Somerfield boss David Simons who will offer a retailer’s perspective on the pitfalls of big mergers.

Ed Garner from TN Sofres will use the latest market share data to highlight the relative strengths and weaknesses of each bid.

And top retail analyst Mike Dennis, from CAI Cheuvreux, will give the City’s perspective on the Safeway auction frenzy.

There’s still time to book a place at the event. Call Jo Williams on 01293 610398 for more details.
