During the show, there are three theatres running concurrently offering sessions across a wide range of topical challenges in retail today. All the theatres are free to attend and on a first come first served basis.

Innovation Trail

The innovation trail is a fantastic opportunity to focus on the latest developments in retail solutions across the board.
