Whittlebury Hall, Northamptonshire

More than 150 retailers joined us to discuss and debate the latest retail trends. This year was all about unleashing the potential of omni-channel retail and we had sessions from Brown Thomas, Claire’s, Liberty, Lyle & Scott, Pets at Home, Primark, Snow+Rock and Tesco.

With more high profile retailer-led sessions and technology demos than ever before it was an opportunity for delegates to tap into lots of inspiring ideas and come away with a ton of practical advice.  A two-day conference with inspiring retail speakers, demos, debates – and dinner.

Getting the right network in place

Omni-channel retail can be impossible to support without an intelligent network at the heart of your operations to bring all your channels together.

Are we really just a nation of promiscuous deal-hunters? Maybe not. New research reveals a more complex relationship between consumers and brands. The Consumer 2014, a Retail Week Report produced in association with BT, is based on an extensive survey of 2,000 shoppers and in-depth exclusive interviews with a nationally representative sample of UK consumers of all ages.
