It’s entirely free for you to attend and you’ll also get access to our inspiring seminar sessions, while all hospitality – including overnight accommodation, all meals and refreshments, plus an invitation to our gala dinner – is entirely complimentary.

Coffee is free and we guarantee you won’t get sore feet.

Luxury In VM Dr Valerie Wilson Trower, Lecturer, London College of Fashion

Visual Merchandising (VM) and luxury in retail are, to some extent, opposites given the transient nature of VM. However, this presentation will demonstrate that effective VM embodies luxury just as much as contemporary tropes of premium retail.

  • True luxury – not only bevel-edged mirrors, marble and chrome
  • The patina of time
  • Space as luxury
  • VM as an everyday luxury – enriching our environment
  • Luxury VM – key to building the brand

Personalisation: Changing The Retail Dynamics – Richard Askam, Founder, WNC Limited

A presentation on the past, present and future of personalisation/customisation product campaigns

  • A look at where the popularity of personalisation has come from and where it’s going
  • How it can help retailers and brands unlock a relationship with consumers
  • What does it feel like to be living in the middle of the Digital Revolution
  • What’s in a name?

Attending the Retail Shopfitting & Display Summit? Here are our top tips for industry networking!

If you’re coming to the next Retail Shopfitting & Display Summit (or if you’ve been to one before) you’ll know just how many opportunities there are to network with your industry peers.

The networking areas are where, as industry suppliers or buyers, you can follow up on conversations you’ve had during the one-to-one meetings that form the core of the two days.

Or, you know, talk about the football.

Either way, business is more often than not about building relationships.

We create networking environments that are informal and free of any pressure – whether that’s during the plentiful coffee breaks, over the delicious lunches and gala dinner, or playing roulette as part of the evening entertainment.

To help you get the most out of these opportunities, we’ve pulled together a few top tips for becoming the consummate networker:

Always be yourself: You’re among friends at the Retail Shopfitting & Display Summit, so there’s no need to feel nervous about walking into a big room of people. Our staff will be on hand to help with introductions and grease those social wheels (do come and say ‘hello’!), plus the evening entertainment lineup means fun and relaxation are the name of the game (did we mention the roulette?).

Have a think about what you want to achieve: Who’s in the room? Is there anyone you met earlier in the day that you’d like to follow up with? Whether you’re a supplier or a buyer, you’ve come to the Retail Shopfitting & Display Summit with some specific goals in mind – the networking periods are a chance to help solidify those new partnerships.

Be curious: The Retail Shopfitting & Display Summit seminars are a great place for developing your industry knowledge and learning new skills. And they always create points of discussion. So why not see what everyone else thought of the talks, or swap some ideas on the latest technological developments and trends in the industry? And if you’re new to the industry, there will be seasoned veterans ready and willing to impart their wisdom!

Don’t forget your business cards! You didn’t think we could get through a whole article about networking without mentioning business cards, did you? It’s an old chestnut, but one worth re-roasting. This author has forgotten his cards more times than he cares to remember – it happens. Always keep a few spread between your wallet/purse, pockets and bag – then you’ll be able to produce one when you most need it. But don’t blanket bomb – just because you have 100 cards to give out, it doesn’t mean you have to!

Always follow up: You’ve given your cards out, but hopefully you’ve picked some up too! So make sure that when you get back to the office you log into LinkedIn or fire off some emails to your new contacts while everything’s still fresh in the mind.

Follow the above tips and you won’t go far wrong. Just don’t spend too long in the bar at the end of Day One – you’ll need to be bright as a button for all the networking we have lined up on Day Two!
