LIVE is the event where colleagues, competitors and change-makers meet in a space that stimulates conversation and builds networks.

Bringing together 200 years of journalistic and business intelligence expertise in the retail, grocery and FCMG space, this year's event is a powerhouse collaboration. LIVE 2025 will bring together an even greater community for high-calibre content, specialist-curated insights and more industry big-hitters than ever before.

Attending LIVE will leave you inspired about the art of the possible.

LIVE 2025 will be the only UK event in your calendar that matters. Because we talk about what really matters, with those that truly care so you leave with solutions that actually make a difference.


Driven by a mission to bring the right insight and inspiration to the right people, you can create your personalised event with our zoned content. You’ll hear the most relevant and innovative sessions to help you navigate your day to day challenges and you'll network with people that have been where you are.


Hear from retail legends like John Boumprey, UK Country Manager, Amazon as well as the up and coming startup's bursting onto the scene, as we adapt to serve the future consumer.

Our speakers aren’t afraid to take control, spark ideas and open up about failures as much as successes.


Talent development remains vital in the industry. We need ways to inspire the next generation of leaders - whoever they are, whatever their background. Brought to you by Be Inspired, a year-round learning and development programme, this zone will explore the key themes all future leaders need to know to ensure career growth and drive business success.


This is a content-driven event steered by the leading voices for retail in the UK. Expo's have their place but we're experts in engagement. In building lasting relationships with retailers, we stand out from the crowd. We create thought leadership which delivers memorable experiences. And through a shared experience, you build organic and meaningful connections.


This year we are dedicating a whole morning to challenging the status quo and what we think we know. You can be 'reverse mentored' live on stage by our Young Minds - the next generation of consumers, innovators and disruptors. Learn exactly how they think, live and shop, and what it really means for changes we need to make today.


We are the retail gathering where collective change happens - ideas are formed, solutions debated and thinking challenged. We offer the very best environment to inspire new thinking and generate game-changing industry partnerships and that is why it is the only UK retail event that you need.

Your networking opportunities will be seamless using “tap and go” technology from our digital badge partner Blendology.
