Retail Expo

  • The UK’s three leading retail exhibitions are transforming into one to create RetailEXPO

    Based on significant insight research around the new needs of retailers and brands, we are embracing retail transformation and boosting our offer.

    RetailEXPO is the all-encompassing event that brings the challenges and opportunities of the transformation of retail into focus. Showcasing the full range of technology, digital signage and design solutions, it is the definitive place for the retail community to meet face-to-face, find new ideas, source new products and services, and to keep up with trends, at pace.

  • Why are we transforming?

    With the industry changing so rapidly we wanted to make sure our events were keeping pace. So we began a project with 150+ leading retailers and brands to understand what was happening in the market and how we could meet the needs of today’s retailers and brands.

    What did we find out? Everything a retailer and brand does is driven by customer needs. With this customer-centricity now embedded in every team and individual, decisions around tech and design are longer taken in isolation but through a blended understanding of customer experience.

    Tech separated from design is not the answer; consumers still crave the emotional and physical experience of the high street despite the huge advances in the online shopping experience. A successful campaign needs the best of both worlds: effective use of tech, merged with inspired creative elements of design.

    Retailers asked us to transform our offering to reflect this new world. Three separate events just doesn’t make sense anymore; retailers and brands want one event where they can find the tools to energise their business and create engaging customer experiences.

    Our network of retail experts who contributed to the research includes:

    • With the fundamental shifts in retail, it makes complete sense that RDE, RBTE and RDSE have been brought together under the Retail Expo banner. Retailers can no longer consider different elements of their business in isolation and the new show format will create a great forum where we can all learn from each other.

    • The UK has needed an all-encompassing retail event for decades. By creating Retail Expo, Reed has rightly put London in the forefront of Europe for everyone involved in the retail experience. With today’s ever changing marketplace and job roles, it is logical to have one event that covers the complete retail environment.

    • The retail visual experience is more than ever linked to technology. To make sure retailers stay relevant in the eyes of the consumer, we must embrace and develop this connection.
