What was on at RBTE 2017

RBTE is more than just an exhibition and the 2017 education programme included a host of areas and features giving visitors the opportunity to catch up with the latest innovations.

During the show we had three theatres running concurrently offering sessions across a wide range of topical challenges in retail today. All our theatres are free to attend and on a first come first served basis.  The full programme can be found here.

Innovation Trail

The innovation trail is a fantastic opportunity to focus on the latest developments in retail solutions across the board. Every year we ask our exhibitors to enter their product developments and, judged by our steering committee, we reward the best innovations. If you are interested in what is new and exciting in the retail space then take our innovation trail to get a great insight. 

Payments Theatre

RBTE’s dedicated Payments Theatre, in partnership with Barclaycard will feature numerous retailers together with other payment industry experts to cover all the essential issues being faced in the current highly innovative and disruptive payments market.

If you need a rest from it all… or catch up with your emails then we have three main areas for you to do so. In addition to the various catering outlets available with Olympia we build too dedicated areas for retailers to relax.
