Crowds building at Retail Design Expo 2017

The doors have opened at Retail Design Expo 2017, to crowds of visitors which had been gathering outside the Olympia venue in London.

More than 17,000 visitors are expected at the combined two day event, which consists of Retail Design Expo, Retail Digital Signage Expo and RBTE. The event runs for two days – 8-9 May – meaning there is still time to attend. Entry is free.

Attractions include more than 650 exhibitors and a packed conference schedule. Speakers include senior managers from a range of retailers, brands and shopping centre operators, who will be speaking about the changing role of physical stores and shopping journeys as consumer behaviour evolves.

Retailer speakers include Wickes CMO Ian Crook, JD Sports fashion group creative visual manager Joanna Quinn, Doddle chief customer officer Paddy Earnshaw and Lloyds Banking group head of branch formats and design Paula Rowntree.

Premier Foods marketing controller Emma Tappin and Hasbro European retail activation manager Irene Martinez will be among speakers from leading brands, alongside speakers including Dyson Professional director Simon Jones.
