This year we’ll be debating the most relevant issues to the diverse and fast evolving sector we represent. 

From Brexit, to evolving retail formats, to health and wellbeing, to transport and infrastructure, to leisure, entertainment and hospitality and the biggest trends disrupting retail, we’re going to examine, debate and be inspired by leading influencers from our own sector and wider industries, both in the UK and internationally.

Here’s just a few of this year’s key talking points…


Clicks, bricks & Brexit.
The UK economic & political outlook 

The Big Five. 
Key trends disrupting retail

How people are changing the retail landscape.
Age is but a number in a customer journey 

Placemaking and building emotional connection.
Why adopting an umbrella strategy to health, wellbeing, accessibility and inclusiveness pays off

People and goods on the move
The importance of transport and infrastructure in connecting people and place 

Retailers sell products. Retailer leaders sell experiences.
Fusing physical and digital to deliver ‘ultimate experience’ 

Inspiring hospitality and leisure.
The challengers and their relevance to future retail

Retail formats – but not as you know them.
Changing formats. From big box to high street

“We’re delighted that Revo has developed a new format for Liverpool which has enabled us to exhibit for the first time. We’re looking forward to bringing our retail agency team to the event and we're sure it will provide a great meeting and networking facility for us.”
