Countdown to Retail Design Expo begins

With just days to go before the doors open at the first Retail Design Expo a host of international exhibitors, speakers and visitors are making final preparations for their London visit.

Companies exhibiting at the event come from across the UK and continental Europe and far beyond, travelling from Canada, Japan and the US to take part in this groundbreaking event, held at Olympia in London on 10-11 March.

Speakers represent the cream of the retail establishment alongside innovative and hot new talent that is changing the way consumers shop. John Lewis, Marks & Spencer, Boots, Selfridges, Liberty, Ted Baker and The Post Office are on the same conference programme as The Future Laboratory, TUI, Boxpark, Appear Here and a host of others.

Top international design agencies are appearing at Retail Design Expo as both presenters and exhibitors, giving delegates access to the latest thinking and trends in one spot, while the VM Live! Stage will feature the live creation of stunning visual displays.

Experts in design, P-O-P, lighting, visual merchandising, mannequins, props, shopfitting, display equipment, signage, shelving, flooring, surfaces, graphics and large format print will be in evidence, meaning a full day of discovery and learning for all visitors.

“The support for the launch of Retail Design Expo has been staggering – it is obvious that the retail design industry has been waiting for an event like this to come along,” says Retail Design Expo show director Annie Swift. “We have established a packed programme across four conference theatres, plus a host of feature areas, along with an exhibition that is bursting at the seams with the input of some brilliantly creative people.”
