Retaissance Live: virtual conference and Meet the Buyer event

News article

2-day event to facilitate innovation, trade and overcome current challenges faced by retailers and brands across Europe

More than six months after the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic was declared, retailers and brands are now trading in a different world. Customers’ shopping habits and preferences have changed, supply chain has become unreliable and shipping products takes longer than before. All these factors put businesses at risk. 

To support the struggling retail sector, Retaissance in partnership with Enterprise Europe Network has launched Retaissance Live - a two day virtual conference on 3 and 4 November 2020 that will help European retailers and jewellery, footwear, gift, beauty, garden, homeware and clothing brands connect to facilitate innovation, trade and overcome the current challenges.

Participants will get:

  • exclusive access to keynote presentations about issues and opportunities faced by the retail industry
  • a unique Meet the Buyer session to do real business

Free to attend, Retaissance Live aims to share the insight and personal experience of inspiring industry experts from small and large organisations with the aim of bringing the retail industry together to recover from the global crisis and grow again.

Meet the Buyer event
This matchmaking event brings together companies (buyers as well as suppliers) from a large number of European countries. This is a unique opportunity to generate new business contacts and contracts. Meetings will be arranged in advance through the event's website.

The Meet the Buyer will run in parallel to several sessions, including the one on changes to online sales from the UK to the EU from January 21. See full agenda here.
