I’m just over two weeks away from delivering my first large event as a newly qualified event manager #eventprofs!

Together with the team at Rich Insight we’ll be launching Retail Recharged on the 20th October, an event we’ve created where retail innovation is not only the main topic but is also central to the event itself.

This event will bring the cutting edge of retail innovation to a senior level audience, with a number of technological innovations that are designed not only to consolidate a variety of rich content and commentary into half a day, but also display just how efficient such innovations can be for business.

Below are the three key ways Retail Recharged will embrace technology not just in the content, but at the very heart of the event itself:

  1. Innovation Lounge. Retail Recharged has hand-curated the 12 most ground-breaking innovations happening in retail at the moment. Our innovation lounge will showcase top emerging talent, giving retailers a chance to witness first-hand how each piece of technology works, and how it can be applied instantaneously to business. Fast paced and interactive, retailers will be empowered to make key decisions on innovation whilst enjoying their afternoon tea!
  2. Event App. A bespoke application, created specifically for Retail Recharged by Crystal Interactive, allowing attendees to instantly gain more information on the keynotes and presentations or download for easy viewing post event. The app also allows attendees to direct message other attendees, exchange details or perhaps arrange a time to chat and connect during one of the breaks. For the innovation pitches, the audience will decide the category winners, who then go on to have a chance of winning “Retail Recharged: Breakthrough Innovator of the Year”.
  3. Tweet Wall. A digital wall provided by Tweetwall Pro will serve as a live aggregator for all things social media related. A hand-curated feed, throughout the day, will ensure the best insights and thoughts aren’t missed but instead are shared for all to see.

Retail Recharged is being staged with one main purpose in mind – empowering retailers and the audience to navigate an increasingly evolving, competitive and complex landscape.

It’s an exciting time and I’m looking forward to delivering this inaugural event, watch out for the post event write up in a couple of weeks time!

Until next time #Eventprofs…
