Checkout Events

Throughout the year, Checkout hosts a range of events and awards that not only celebrate the best in the Irish grocery industry, but also present unique networking opportunities.

Annual Checkout Events

Checkout Conference

A must-attend event each year, the Checkout Conference brings together leaders and innovators from across the retail and FMCG industry to discuss some of the key challenges and opportunities in the Irish grocery space.

Checkout Best In Fresh Awards

The annual Checkout Best in Fresh Awards are the only awards ceremony in Ireland to recognise excellence in fresh produce retailing. The Best In Fresh Awards reward and promote excellence in fresh food retailing in Ireland, with retailers of all sizes and formats honoured.

National Retail Supplier Awards

The National Retailer Supplier Awards acknowledge best-in-class logistics providers, equipment manufacturers, store fit-outs, utility providers, loyalty programmes, facilities management and merchandising teams – in essence, the suppliers ‘behind the scenes’ that make Ireland’s retail industry one of the most competitive in the world.

The Checkout National FMCG Awards

The Checkout National FMCG Awards are designed to recognise best practice in sales, marketing, sponsorship and advertising in the FMCG sector. The awards examine areas including new product development (NPD), best-in-class merchandising and sales support, innovation in advertising and marketing, and sponsorship, by both retailers and suppliers.
