In true Retail Racing style, our 2022 Christmas Bash provided attendees with 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, this was the ideal event to build industry network and pipeline.
Retail Racing events are 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, so our Christmas bash commenced 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 future. Our exclusive events are 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 concluded, the action commenced with our annual karting challenge. Guests had the opportunity to compete in a series of races to qualify for the Grand Prix final. The really fun bit, all guests got to experience the high-adrenaline world of karting, getting behind the wheel to drive a kart around a track. This was a full-on action-packed race with live timings, as guests competed to win the coveted Retail Racing Annual Karting Trophy.
Once racing was complete, it was time to head back to The InterContinental, O2, where guests had indulged in a lavish networking dinner. This relaxed evening allowed guests to network and socialise while having plenty of fun. During the evening we had an exciting guest speaker and will conclude with prize giving.
