About The Retail Conference
The Retail Conference was first held in September 2007. The event was created by Clare Rayner, The Retail Champion. Having observed that the majority of retail events were hard-selling exhibitions and that quality, content-driven conferences
were typically only available for a hefty ticket price, Clare determined that there was an opportunity to bring something new to retailers.
The Retail Conference provides retailers with a place to network, learn and share in a 'safe environment' with a like-minded audience.
Most importantly, The Retail Conference differs from other events by ensuring that attendees are not aggressively sold to by a plethora of exhibitors and non-retail attendees.
Now, The Retail Conference is an established event on the retail calendar
and has attracted up to 200 attendees in the past. The event has evolved over the years in response to delegates' feedback but the ethos of providing a quality, content-rich event has been maintained.
Our carefully selected sponsors
are the lifeblood of the event, enabling us to offer heavily subsidised tickets to our forward-thinking delegates. Each sponsor is a well-regarded expert provider
in their field and all have been advised that attendees won't respond to a 'hard sell' approach.
Instead, The Retail Conference presents engaging content based on a consultative approach, sharing case studies, insights and lessons learned.
This means that delegates understand what each sponsor offers and can then build a relationship of trust from which far more mutually profitable partnerships
The Retail Conference 2016 takes place on Wednesday 21st September at the fantastic Nottingham Conference Centre in the heart of England. If you would like to join us, please register now.
