Innovative companies are invited to submit proposals for the opportunity to take part in Europe’s largest gathering of the retail industry, where topics such as loyalty, mobile, integration, payments, global expansion, real time inventory and fulfilment are just a small selection of the subjects under discussion.

Nick Field, event director, RBTE, said: “RBTE is the event that sets the agenda for the retail industry. Our visitors demand the most innovative and thought provoking speakers covering new ideas and topics which will appeal to the broad range of job functions that the show attracts. RBTE is for the whole team, from the CEO to managers, and not just the IT Department, with visitors representing all the key business area’s from IT, Marketing, eCommerce, Mobile, Supply Chain, HR, Finance, Operations, Payments, Buying, Merchandising, Multichannel, Loss Prevention….. There’s something for everyone.”

The comprehensive education programme at RBTE 2014 features three conference theatres, with one theatre dedicated entirely to payments, (plus the e-commerce bootcamps, the 20/20 theatre and the Innovation programme) providing plenty of opportunities to hear the very best retail content there is to offer – all FREE! And as the educational programme is the star of a vast marketing campaign, speakers will benefit from an extensive publicity drive, pre and post show. 

The call for papers deadline is October 16th 2013. More details and hints and tips on how to submit a proposal can be found at
