Steve Barnes, Chief Executive of GroceryAid said; “We launched our Barcode Festival last year and were blown away by the feedback. It has very quickly become a must-attend in the grocery calendar selling out months ahead of the July 4th date. Barcode will enable a wide range of industry colleagues to engage with the charity, network and have fun at what is going to be our biggest ever event. With well over 100 companies attending, Barcode is breaking new ground in how we bring the whole industry together for our cause.”
Charles Wilson, CEO of Booker added; “Barcode Festival sees the industry unite to have fun, network, dance to amazing headliners and support the industry charity GroceryAid. This is the summer event on everyone’s lips and Booker can’t wait to be there again on July 4th.”
