[ EVENT ] The UK’s premier invitation-only meeting for Senior Data Leaders in retail
The CDO Retail Exchange, taking place on the 18-19 July at the Syon Park Hotel in London, is an intimate, invite-only event for senior data leaders in the retail industry.
Operating in an increasingly digital and on-demand age, the need for good, effective data is fundamental for organisations to make the most efficient, effective decisions. There is an increasing need to meet the consumer across a multitude of platforms, but this is impossible without the necessary data foundations within the wider business. The Exchange will explore how to create a truly personalised experience for consumers, precisely manage inventory for cost-effective warehousing, and react in close to real-time to macroeconomic issues.
The Exchange is a different kind of data event offering attendees the highest degree of relevancy; only senior data leaders driving decisions within their organisations are invited. Some attendees already confirmed for this year include the Chief Architect for Primark, the Head of Decision Sciences for Currys, the Group Head of Data, Insights and Analytics for PureGym and the Head of Data and Insights for Monica Viander.
“It was so great to be surrounded by peers in the industry — like-minded leaders who are all facing similar challenges; asking similar questions; and passionate about the space of data and analytics.” Group Head of Strategy & Insights, Domino’s Pizza Enterprises
Our events are unique in that they provide an intimate setting to meet the key decision-makers of leading organisations. Whereas other conferences invite hundreds of people and rarely explore the intricacies of data issues, our Exchanges are smaller, allowing exclusive opportunities to delve deeper and share ideas and challenges that affect those at the top. Before the event, each attendee has extensive calls with our delegate team to personalise their schedules, discuss their biggest challenges and match them with the most relevant solution providers.
Our sessions and presentations are topical and current, delivered by big-name experts. Some key presentations for this year include “The Future of Retail Technologies & the Evolving Role of Data Capabilities” with Jay Kotecha, Data and Business Intelligence Lead for Huel, and Peter Laflin, the Head of Insights and Performance for Morrisons, and “Right Product, Right Place, Right Time: Managing Supply Chains & Economic Uncertainties for Investment ROI” with Nick Sawyer, the Global CDO for Dr Martens.

We only select a limited number of the most relevant vendors who can supply solutions to the challenges of our attendees. The current 2023 sponsors are Billigence, CARTO, Fivetran, Informatica, JK Tech, Objectivity, Qlik, SnapLogic, Snowflake, Snowplow, The Smart Cube and Xpedition.
We offer intimate networking opportunities with both leaders in the field and solution providers — you are guaranteed to leave the event with new and valuable connections within the industry.
