There’s also an exciting programme of free workshops, seminars, and talks. Higor Torchia, Country Manager of EMEA for Vend, will be speaking on the future of retail technology and how tech will impact your retail business. You can catch his talk on the Main Stage at 03:15 – 04:00 pm on 4th February and 02:15 – 03:00 pm on 6th February at the Retail Skills Theatre.

Our top two picks are Jo Fairley, Entrepreneur and Co-founder of beloved chocolate brand Green and Black speaking on building a brand that matters and Davy Pittoors, City Visual Merchandising Manager for Louis Vuitton, who’s talking about what independents can learn from luxury brands.

Other topics range from social media and ecommerce to pop up shops and implementing PR. Don’t miss out ⏤ take a look and make note of the most inspiring and valuable talks for your business.
