In this edition, we share the 2016 SPAR worldwide results and reflect on what was another hugely successful year for the SPAR Brand with growth of 4.5%. We look at the trends arising from this year’s EuroShop and SPAR Store Development Seminar in Düsseldorf and we share the success of strengthening our brand exposure through the sustained investment in athletics sponsorship, most recently at the 2017 European Athletics Indoor Championships in Belgrade.
We feature interviews with Lex Hollmann from SPAR South Africa and Krisztina Várkonyi of SPAR Hungary, whose inspiring stories are outlined in our regular Local Champion and SPAR Star stories. We also highlight the rapid development of SPAR China’s Supply Chain and feature a country profile of SPAR Spain, hosts of this year’s SPAR International Congress – more of that event in issue 3-2017.
