Why Exhibit?

More than 3,000 visitors

Over just two days, 3,000 retail professionals will pour through the doors of the show with the sole intention of improving their customer journey, and in turn maximising their business. To do so, they will be looking to form long lasting relationships with innovative organisations and technology suppliers, and that’s where you come in.

Gain exposure

As an exhibitor you will gain exposure to each and every one of our pre qualified visitors, all of whom are looking to find the latest products and solutions that will not only optimise their customers’ experience, but also render it absolutely unforgettable. By placing yourself in front of these buyers, you have the chance to pitch them first hand, fully demo your product and achieve a direct line to market, all in one place.

Pre qualified attendees

Smart Retail Tech only invites pre qualified attendees, meaning that only those with decision making powers, or at bare minimum with buying influence, will be in attendance. From independent shops to internationally known department stores, Smart Retail Tech provides a base for all those in the industry to learn and improve their retail business.

The power ofFace to Face

Crowd of people

This is because our show allows you to get up close and personal with over 3,000 potential clients and pre qualified business leads, all have been selected by the organiser and they have chosen to attend.


“This was my first time attending the Smart Retail Tech Expo and I was amazed to see so many interesting and innovative companies demonstrating their wares. There was truly something for everyone in the retail space, from cutting edge online tech through to warehouse robotics and automation. The speaker line up was stellar and I was privileged to deliver a talk to a very engaged group of attendees. I will be back next time!”

Combining this with the obvious benefit of access to decision makers from companies we all know and love is what gives the Expo its winning formula. We'll be back.”
