The European retail community will be gathering at London’s Olympia next week when RBTE, Europe’s most influential retail solutions event and the co-located Retail Design Expo and Retail Digital Signage Expo opens its doors for business. Global visitors from as far away as Australia will be joining their European colleagues from hundreds of tier one and two retailers, as well as hospitality and leisure providers, while over 17,000 visitors are expected over the two day event.

RBTE has many compelling reasons to visit – over  370 solution providers, ranging from the largest international players to small boutique suppliers and innovative start ups, will offer a range of solutions from full scale ERP systems to mobile payments.  The most innovation solutions will be put under the spotlight with the RBTE Innovation Trail and Awards, sponsored by Aptos.   This popular feature makes a welcome return. RBTE exhibitors were invited to submit entries which include Projected Augmented Reality, Touchless Checkout and Electronic Price Labels which were reviewed by a judging panel of experts. The overall winner will be announced at the Dilax Big Party in the gloodoo Champagne Party at 4.45pm on Monday 8th May.
