About the Event

A joint initiative of the four major European retail associations - EuroCommerce, Euro Coop, European Retail Round Table and Independent Retail Europe - the inaugural European Retail Day focused on the role of innovation to drive the sector's competitiveness.

The event, which attracted over 200 participants from all over Europe, heard from EU Commission Vice-President Jyrki Katainen and an impressive series of retail leaders, industry experts and consumer representatives. Following the success of the initiative, a second edition is currently in the works for early 2020.

What We Did:

  • Programme development support and speaker liaison
  • Media partnership with key trade publications
  • Video highlights and speaker interviews

Testimonials

“I must say that this was a really excellent event – well organised, well attended and I both learned a lot of new things and made some very interesting contacts. It’s probably one of the two or three best events I have attended this year and had rather changed my mind about Brussels, EU policy events and collaboration.”

Ian Jindal, Founder and Editor in Chief, Internet Retailing
