Written by Conor Simpson ·
We are delighted to have been shortlisted as one of the top 10 finalists in line to receive the “2019 Innovation Award” at the RetailExpo. This conference is Europe’s leading retail technology event and will be held at the London Olympia on May 1st and 2nd, featuring innovative tech, design and signage within the retail space. RetailEXPO will open the doors to the new retail era, helping brands to evolve with the rapid changes, create meaningful customer experiences and guide retail business strategy at the hand of technology.
The finalists were announced yesterday on the EssentialRetail website, the media publication covering the RetailEXPO conference. All entries were independently judged by a panel of well-known industry experts such as Kathryn Malloch, Head of Customer Experience at Hammerson; Ken Daley, CEO of JML; Mark McMurtrie, Director of Payments Consultancy; Matthew Valentine, Editor at Retail Design World; and Caroline Baldwin, Editor at Essential Retail.
Our participation at the RetailExpo will be in a variety of formats. Our Senior Vice President of Product and Growth, Rafa Pulido, will deliver a TrIED It Talk on the opening day of the event at 11:40 AM about “Reinventing the High Street with Location Intelligence”. In this session, we will deep dive into how Location Intelligence is changing the way retailers do business by showing them what’s really going on around their stores and out there on the high street.
Two stands, one company
In tandem to this, the Geoblink team will also be present in two distinct stands during the conference: Stand 2B52 in the Discovery Zone and Stand 2A30 in the Start-up Safari. The Discovery Zone can be found within the TECH area of the event, showcasing top-of-the-line technology providers and services that are leading the new retail revolution.
The second stand (2A30) is in collaboration with the award-winning business and technology consultancy, Baringa Partners. Geoblink was selected to participate in Baringa Partners’ prestigious Start-up Safari zone to showcase its cutting-edge technology solutions to forward-thinking retailers during the event.
Rafa Pulido, Senior Vice President of Product and Growth at Geoblink, comments: “We are honoured to be so involved in this prestigious retail technology event. Having Geoblink shortlisted for the 2019 Innovation Award and also being selected to showcase in Baringa Partners’ Start-up Safari shows just how essential effective data analysis is becoming to survive in this new retail paradigm. The key to navigating through this turbulent climate will come down to the retailers’ ability to go beyond collecting data to actually understanding how to apply it to every facet of their business strategy”.
We look forward to seeing you at the RetailExpo!
