RetailEXPO returns for 2020

Taking place at London’s Olympia from 29 to 30th April 2020, RetailEXPO is the go-to event for architects looking for the right tools, solutions, innovations and advice on retail schemes. The two-day expo attracts over 18,000 of the industry’s leading technology vendors and suppliers – from established enterprise-level solution providers to innovative start-up and market disruptors – as well as key decision-makers from international brands and retailers.


In addition to the high calibre of exhibitors and speakers, RetailEXPO provides visitors with a host of networking opportunities, such as The Networking Bar which hosts the ceremony for the Innovation Trail & Awards. These awards celebrate vendors whose innovative products and services deliver enhanced customer experience across their business, from in-store design and digital signage, to payment solutions, biometrics and robotics.

The show will also have a ‘digital networking’ app, which provides visitors and exhibitors a match-making service to help set up meetings with brands, retailers, vendors and partners. If you’re looking for innovative solutions you haven’t seen before, then head to the Discovery Zone which features exhibitors not seen at the show before, whilst the Start-Up Safari curated by Baringa, showcases the very latest disruptive technologies pushing the boundaries of retail innovation. Chris Field, CEO of Fieldworks, will also lead a select number of guided visitor tours, showcasing the Innovation Awards shortlisted exhibitors.



Not to miss the Stylus Retail Masterclass which gives an exclusive in-depth look at one of retail’s biggest areas for innovation – sustainability – in this masterclass on day one of the show, followed by a live Q&A where Katie Baron, Director of Brand Engagement will answer your most burning retail questions.

In addition, the 2020 POPAI Awards, which seek to reward creativity, innovation and best practice in retail marketing, will be showcasing retailers dedicated to achieving excellence in-store. RetailEXPO will also be supporting the Student Design Awards initiative, committed to inspiring the next generation of store designers by setting live briefs in partnership with major retailers and brands.

Matt Bradley, Chairman at the RetailEXPO advisory board, said: “Retailers who answer the call for excitement and innovation are flourishing while resistors are falling by the wayside. This year, the show will offer up even more unparalleled levels of insight and inspiration for the retail sector, underpinned by innovative tech and striking design. The result is a more exciting, more diverse industry in which retailers are constantly pushing the boundaries of what they offer and what they do.”
