The Retail Technology Show will be organized by the event's director, Matt Bradley, who launched the Retail Business Technology Expo (RBTE) in 2011, which he later rebranded to Retail Expo. Also joining the launch is Nick Field, former co-founder of RBTE, who will be taking a seat on the show’s Advisory Board to help shape his success.
The aim of Retail Technology Show is to help businesses thrive in the highly disruptive retail sector. Retail Technology Show will bring together a range of the most innovative suppliers in the industry alongside an extensive free to attend conference agenda covering the issues facing retailers not only today but in the future. Whilst, high-level connections will be facilitated through a curated one-to-one meetings programme.
Nineteen Group's Matt Bradley said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to be bringing Retail Technology Show back to an industry which has never needed it more. As retailers begin their recovery from a year of unprecedented disruption the show will be the platform for vital connections between supplier and buyer with an extensive conference programme to give retailers a clear roadmap for a successful future. Nineteen’s philosophy and ambition make them the perfect partner to support Retail Technology Show. They mirror the fast-paced world of retail and will offer stability, support and creativity.”
Peter Jones, Nineteen Group's CEO added: “We are extremely excited to welcome Matt and his original show team to the Nineteen family as we continue to grow and enter new markets. It is also a delight to re-join forces with Nick Field, who we worked with nearly two decades ago launching shows in Europe & Asia. Nineteen Group prides itself in serving the markets we serve, making Retail Technology Show the perfect fit for our business. There were many other parties interested in launching this event and we are delighted that Matt has chosen Nineteen Group.”
