The Swan Hotel, Bedford

Curated Introductions

Our October event, one of the premier networking events in the retail industry, began with a carefully curated series of one-to-one meetings. These meetings were specifically designed to provide the retail leaders in attendance with the opportunity to interact with software and solution partners. This was an ideal platform for them to share their challenges, discuss upcoming projects, and strategize for the future. Furthermore, this event presented sponsors with an excellent opportunity to connect with key prospects and build a robust pipeline with some of the most successful retailers across the country. This event was a must-attend for those who aspire to be at the forefront of the retail world.

Indulgent Networking Dinner & Prize Giving

Once the formal introductions were complete, guests were treated to a delicious 3-course networking dinner. This indulgent evening is an example of just one of our premier networking events, designed to foster connections in a relaxed and enjoyable setting. Retail leaders, along with other esteemed guests, had the opportunity to network and forge new relationships. The evening's activities also included an engaging guest speaker, adding an element of excitement and learning to the event.

Luxury Driving Experience

The second day of the event promises an exclusive luxury driving experience at PalmerSport. Guests had the unique opportunity to take control of eight high-performance racing cars, partaking in a series of exhilarating challenges. This event was not merely about the thrill of speed but also served as a significant retail networking platform. Our Retail Racing Palmer Sport October bash was an exceptional networking event that allowed retail leaders to form new relationships and share memorable experiences.
