Retail Systems Roundtables

Retail Systems organises and hosts a range of exclusive intimate roundtables and bespoke events throughout the year, which are free to attend for retail technology professionals.

A roundtable is a form of discussion where participants debate specific business and technology topics. Each person is given equal right to participate in the discussions which centre on current trends and issues affecting the retail sector.

Roundtable discussions and event write ups are often published digitally and in print. Where applicable the write ups and comments are sent to participants ahead of publication and they are given the chance to approve their comments.

There is also the opportunity for us to work with you on networking drinks evenings, half day conferences, seminars, workshops and much more.

If you have a roundtable or bespoke event topic in mind, please enquire with the Retail Systems Team and our in-house events team can build an event specific to your needs. Topics we are looking to cover include:

Block Chain
Fraud and Security
Technological Innovations

Amongst many more.

For further information on sponsorship on our forthcoming roundtables or bespoke events, please contact:
