About Us

Revo supports the people and businesses involved in the diverse world of retail property and placemaking to thrive and prosper, energising and driving progress for our community.

It's time to move onwards and upwards.

Our industry is shifting and evolving. We’re changing too, so that we can better represent our community and membership base, and drive the industry forward.

Making what's good even better.

Rest assured that our founding principles and commitment will remain the same. We will continue to build on all the great things we've achieved over the past 30-plus years.

A broader remit.

We are now embracing all kinds of retail property and all kinds of stakeholders – everyone, in other words. This diversity makes us uniquely placed to champion real improvements and positive change for our sector.

Working together.

We intend to harness the collective experience, as well as the influence and resources of our network to challenge and shape our industry for the future. And we’ll be working in constant dialogue with the entire retail property community.

The influencers.

We are here to help shape the future of the retail property and placemaking industry. So we will be engaging with even more senior figures in key government departments to raise awareness of Revo locally and nationally.

The network.

Who you know is just as important as what you know. Our membership has a really broad base, with specialisms and experience of all kinds. We aim to create more relevant and accessible business and career development opportunities and make sure the industry has the right people, with the right skills.

The benchmark.

Revo sets standards, recognises achievement and sparks ideas. A new educational programme will meet the needs of industry professionals throughout their careers, and there will be a renewed focus on apprenticeships. We’re also expanding our Awards Programme to better reflect the diversity of our industry.

The trend spotters & thought leaders.

Revo intends to stay ahead of the curve, prepared for and embracing the future. We will analyse trends, interpret market data and organise focused working groups and think tanks run by true experts in their fields. We will produce pioneering research and insight papers, and establish Revo as the place to come for authoritative commentary.
