The Retail Technology Show, an event for retail innovation and technology, has announced its move to ExCeL London in response to overwhelming demand from exhibitors and visitors. This relocation signifies a significant expansion, reflecting the show’s rapid growth and its role in shaping the future of retail.

After several successful years at London Olympia and numerous memorable moments, the Retail Technology Show will transition to a larger venue for its 2025 edition. With demand for space increasing annually and a growing number of retailers attending, the move to ExCeL London is set to accommodate this growth, providing more value to all participants of the UK’s largest retail gathering.
