Mobile Retail Summit America Square Conference Centre, London - www.mretailsummit.co.uk
The retail landscape is changing and the sector is set for even more rapid change over the next three years as retailers respond to changing consumer behaviour, particularly around the use of mobile in the shopping process. The Mobile Retail Summit, now in its third year, offers retailers the opportunity to explore how mobile is impacting the retail landscape and what their business needs to do stay ahead of the game.
Retail Trust Dragon Boat Race Ocean Terminal, Edinburgh - www.retailtrust.org.uk
Retail Trust is calling all retailers to take part in its annual dragon boat race taking place in Ocean Terminal, Edinburgh. Not only is this a fantastic team building event, but it is also a chance to raise money for Retail Trust, which works to improve lives for all involved in the retail industry.
Meet the Manufacturer is the first and only major sourcing event specifically for UK-only manufacturers of clothing and textiles. More than just a trade fair, this event will provide opportunities for UK factories, designers and buyers to network under one roof in an environment that is open and collaborative to doing business. This inaugural event has been developed due to an increase in requests through the website ‘Make it British’ from designers, buyers and sourcing directors who are actively looking for quality British factories to make their products.
