In true Retail Racing style, the event provides the opportunity to make high-level retail connections with industry peers and suppliers whilst maintaining a heart-pumping motorsport theme.Held at InterContinental, O2, one of the best luxury hotels in our great capital, it’s the ideal event to build your network and pipeline.
This event is one of the best ways to connect with key prospects and build a pipeline with some of the greatest retailers in London and the south of England. Community is at the heart of the Retail Racing ethos and therefore the event commences with a series of curated one-to-one meetings, providing retailers with the opportunity to meet solution and software partners and share their challenges and projects for the year ahead. Retail Racing is an exclusive event attended by senior digital decision-makers from leading retailers and top retail brands. Typical roles are Directors of or Heads of Digital, eCommerce, Product and Innovation, alongside some CIO’s and CEO’s.
Once the meetings have concluded, the action commences with our annual karting challenge. Guests will have the opportunity to compete in a series of races to qualify for the Grand Prix final. The really fun bit, all guests get to experience the high adrenaline world of karting, getting behind the wheel to drive a kart around a track. Every guest gets to drive, this is more than just networking!It’s a full-on action-packed racing with live timing, as guests compete to win the coveted Retail Racing Annual Karting Trophy.
Once racing is complete, it’s then back to The InterContinental, O2, where guests have the opportunity to freshen up and indulge in a lavish networking dinner.This relaxed evening allows guests to network and socialise while having plenty of fun.
