We're going to Retail Week Live 2018!
We are excited to announce that our very own Head of Strategy & Innovation, Simon Liss, will be hosting the LaunchPad stage at the highly anticipated Retail Week Live 2018 this week at The InterContinental London.
The 2-day event will host over 150 industry experts who will be speaking about topics ranging from Brexit to future tech, such as Deputy Mayor of London for Business Rajesh Agrawl, Senior Director of Google’s Retail & Technology Martijn Bertisen, Sir Vince Cable of the Liberal Democratic Party, Royal Mail CEO Moya Greene, New Look’s Head of Digital Paul Rasmussen and Global VP of Retail Development at The LEGO Group Simone Sweeney, to name a few….
‘Designing spaces and experiences that people will queue for’, ‘The tech your customer really cares about’, ‘Planning in the face of economic uncertainty’ are a few of the exciting seminars and workshops that delegates and other event goers can participate in on 7 & 8 March.
There is also an app built exclusively for the forthcoming event where individuals, industry experts and retailers alike, can network and share their thoughts on the social platform, as well as ‘check-in’ to the event and browse through the extensive attendee list.
Tickets are still available on the RWL18 website – use our discount code LIVE15 for 15% off!
