A one-stop shop for innovation: Explore 200+ technology suppliers
Over 200 tech innovators will be exhibiting across the two-day expo, showcasing the latest cutting-edge technologies to digitally transform retailers’ businesses, from established enterprise technology solutions – including Amazon Just Walk Out, Toshiba, HP, WorldPay and Zebra – to new disruptors, fast growth up-starts and start-ups. The breadth of innovation on display means retailers can explore the full spectrum of retail technology for every part of their business and operations, all under one roof – from next-gen ecommerce capabilities and new solutions to power payments, future-proof supply chains, optimise operations and empower the retail workforce.
Hear from the ‘who’s who’ of retail, as industry luminaries, including New Look Chairman and ex-Sainsbury’s CEO Mike Coup, Dreams former CEO Mike Logue, Deliciously Ella’s founder Ella Mills, and Sam Jones of Gener8 with his investor, Tinie Tempah, take to the stage. Six tracks over the two days will host 90+ retail leaders, covering the hottest topics that are defining the new retail landscape.

The very latest tech that can give retailers the edge they need to create first-mover advantage has been curated in the dedicated Discovery Zone, which champions the newest innovations on offer to the market. New tech suppliers include mobile data analytics platform, Waizu, sustainability tracking solution, Dayrize, and queue orchestration provider, AKIS Technologies, among others.
Take a tech tour on the Start-up Safari
Taking place across the two-day event, the Start-Up Safari is a key part of Retail Technology Show’s continued commitment to driving the retail industry forwards through innovation. Carefully curated by leading international consultancy, Baringa, the Start-Up Safari will take retail visitors on a journey of discovery as they explore the top ten picks of the most exciting technologies set to disrupt the retail sector, as well as profiling the high-octane start-up community. Tech suppliers featured on the Safari include augmented reality solution, London Dynamics, customer data and marketing platform, Ometria and in-store feedback technology, TruRating.
Celebrating future-forward tech at the Innovation Awards
A mainstay of Retail Technology Show’s mission to showcase the most progressive innovations that help drive retail businesses forward, the Innovation Awards, sponsored by Google Cloud, celebrate and recognise the most future-forward technologies with the power to transform retailers’ operations at the show. A shortlist of ten solution providers from across the technology spectrum – from sustainability to supply chain and payments to POS – have been chosen, with the winner to be crowned at the BIG Retail Reunion Party, from 4pm on Day 1 at the Champagne Bar.
Matt Bradley, Event Director for the Retail Technology Show, commented: “No part of a retailers’ business has been untouched by the fallout of the last two years – from digital acceleration and ecommerce adoption, to reimagined retail formats, new consumer behaviours and upended supply chains. Retailers have lived through that change and understand now, more than ever, the role digital transformation and technology play in redefining their future success. And that is why innovation sits front and centre of the Retail Technology Show. We can’t wait to reunite the industry and celebrate the power of transformative technology.”
