New digital content
We will build an entirely new dimension to the schedule which will explain the role of technology in retail strategy and bring a whole new layer of technology decision-makers to Retail Week Live for the first time.
Each session on our agenda has been assigned to a Tribe which allows you to not only create a personalised agenda, but also meet with like minded individuals from across the ecosystem.
Each of the five tribes have one Meet-Up where you get to meet these fellow tribespeople to discuss any challenges, ideas, or brainstorming for the future.
Which tribe do you belong to?
On the evening of Wednesday 7th October, join us for Live Late, the industry party that will give you serious FOMO if you don't attend! A perfect opportunity to do some serious networking, bust a groove (should you wish) and enjoy some down time with your colleagues and new connections after a jam-packed first day at Live! This is your chance to meet new people, build connections and establish long-lasting relationships that could make a real difference to your business, so don't miss it!
This is a fantastic sponsorship opportunity, so if you’d like to be aligned with the best industry party then contact
firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
App - Book Meetings
Our new app will include the ability for retailers and sponsors to book on-to-one meetings with interested, relevant people which means that you can control who you meet and make more valuable connections.
Sometimes a beautiful relationship needs a helping hand. This is where Start-up Matchmaking comes in. Working with Co:Cubed we want to ensure you don’t miss out on a key part of the show - the entrepreneurs and start-ups shaking up the industry.
Start-up Matchmaking at Retail Week Live will help connect retailers and brands with a passion for innovation to stellar start-ups with solutions that fit your needs.
How does the Matchmaking work?
All you need to do is give Co:Cubed your innovation goals and they’ll match you with the start-ups shaping the industry. Meet with 5 revolutionary start-ups in 30 minutes.
How do I join the Matchmaking sessions?
You can connect with Co:Cubed ahead of Retail Week Live who can organise you a bespoke session. Or you can join one of the existing sessions onsite and you will be able to find out the times on the app.
If you are interested in start-up matchmaking please email email@example.com for your bespoke session to be arranged
New for 2020 we are introducing the Meeting Lounge.
Retailers and brands know that they cannot keep up with the pace of change alone so at Live we want to ensure companies can meet to discuss strategic partnerships.
Using our app sponsors, start-ups, retailers and brands can arrange 20-minute meetings in the Meeting Lounge. The app will recommend people for you based on your preferences provided during registration to ensure you have tailored and specific meetings.
Please note access to the meeting tool on the app is reserved for retailer pass holders, sponsors and start-ups only.
Treat yourself to some pampering! From cupcakes to shoe shines, a massage parlour to a nail bar. Retail Week Live is most certainly more than just a conference!

London Shoe Shine - London Shoe Shine is also back again for 2020 – make sure your shoes are looking tip top by taking a seat in their pop up shop. You also never know who you might be sat next to and could meet your next business contact. Or use the London Shoe Shine area to have a meeting.

Make your Pledge
What is the Retail Week Live Pledge Board?
At Retail Week Live 2020, we want to celebrate the fantastic initiatives that organisations and individuals are spearheading to drive social and environmental change. Everyone in the retail ecosystem is doing their part, whether as an individual or a company, to create a positive impact on the planet, and it’s about time we shout about.
Whether it’s ‘I pledge to carry my reusable cup with me wherever I go,’ or ‘I pledge to join a volunteering scheme in my local community,’ or company wide ‘we will reduce plastic waste by 50% in 3 years’ or ‘we will use ethically sourced cotton by 2025’ – we’ll be asking delegates to pin their pledges to the Board for all to see. The aim at the end of the two days is to have a great mix of pledges that we can shout about on social media to create a really positive buzz.
