Dear Partner,


Welcome to the Partner Registration Portal where you will be able to access all the information you need to help make the Nisa Virtual Expo a fantastic online experience for you and your suppliers.

The events of 2020 have meant that the independent retail environment has been extremely challenging. It’s a market where we are proud to say the sector has really stepped up and through working closely with our supplier base we have been able to differentiate ourselves from the competition and gain market share.


We felt that now, more than ever, it was important to work together with our suppliers, partners and Nisa head office teams to really showcase Nisa as well as the full range of Co-op own label products. We are really proud to create the first ever Nisa Virtual Expo that will include all the usual features of Stoneleigh, together with some additional interaction that is only available through a virtual platform.

To confirm your attendance please click on the Register Now link below.
