News from RDE: Retail Design Expo (RDE) will soon be opening its doors for 2018


For 2018, Retail Design Expo has put together a show that is better than ever before, inspiring and delighting visitors design senses. As brands increasingly look to differentiate from their competitors, stand-out design, inspiring visual merchandising, thought-provoking marketing, and stunning lighting will all play a role in delivering an exclusive experience.

Europe’s largest retail solutions show is still open for visitor registrations. RDE is the must-attend exhibition for innovation and inspiration in retail design, where visitors can discover first-hand the latest cutting-edge technology, innovations and trends that are set to shake up the retail sector.

Taking place at London’s Olympia on 2 and 3 May 2018, RDE is the key industry event for innovation and inspiration in retail design, marketing, branding, visual merchandising, architecture and shop fitting. With just two days to pack everything in, make the best of your time at RDE 2018:

The exhibition is the primary reason delegates attend RDE and it’s not hard to see why. This year, cutting-edge exhibitors will be showcasing the very latest retail design and marketing solutions, making it the perfect place to find those suppliers who will help set your brand apart from the rest.

Innovation: it can be hard to source the most inspirational and cutting-edge products in such a short space of time, so following the success of last year’s Innovation Trail and Awards, we are again rewarding those exhibitors whose products, services and solutions will shape the retail and brand landscape. All shortlisted exhibitors are featured in the dedicated Innovation area and feature in the Innovation Trail, which leads delegates around the exhibition to the Innovation Winners Wall.

Speakers: This year, we are hosting 60 free conference sessions across three dedicated theatres focusing on retail design and branding, visual merchandising and shopper. This gives you the opportunity to learn from the experts, hear all the latest trends and absorb the experiences of top retailers and brand owners.

Networking: exhibitors and delegates alike tell us they attend RDE to expand their network. Retailers and brands are invited to meet with peers and exhibitors at the Networking Breakfast ahead of the show. We are delighted that SMP are partnering with RDE again to host the Great Gatsby themed ‘Bubbly Bar’, the venue for our popular big Party on Wednesday evening. And, we are offering smart networking, which allows delegates to find and set-up meetings with key exhibitors at the touch of a button. If you haven’t already don’t forget to download the app.

Industry excellence: as well as the Innovation Trail and Awards, we will be announcing the winners of the VM Awards, which recognises the best examples of window dressings, POP and displays across all sectors and seasons; while the Retail Design World Student Awards, celebrate and promote the industry’s future stars.

Visitors can register for their free pass to RDE, Europe’s leading retail technology trade show, here.
