Retail Design Expo, Europe’s leading annual event for innovation and inspiration in retail design, visual merchandising and shopfitting returned to London on 8th and 9th May 2017, with a huge boost in attendance of visitors including retailers and brands. The event was held at London’s Olympia, co-located with RBTE and Retail Digital Signage Expo.

The event showcased 225 market-leading suppliers from global players to innovative smaller suppliers covering every aspect of the in-store journey.

Business leaders including Guy Smith, Head of Design, Arcadia; Andy Turnbull, Global Creative Principle, New Look; Alan Taylor, Head of Retail Design, B&Q; Tony Holdway, Creative and Marketing Director, BHS; Liz Silvester, Head of Visual Identity, Liberty and Stephen Dempsey, VM Concept Manager, John Lewis discussed a broad range of topics at the conference sessions run alongside the event covering the wide spectrum of retail design, branding and visual merchandising.

In addition to the extensive blue chip conference programme and exhibitors there were a lot of new features on offer, including the Innovation Trail and Awards, which helped visitors navigate the most cutting edge exhibitors; and the VM Christmas Awards which saw the cream of the VM world nominated.


Embracing the booming digital signage market, Retail Digital Signage Expo featured the entire range of suppliers, from screens and kiosks, to content management, AV, media players and networking solutions. In addition to the broad range of vendors, the topic was widely addressed in both the Retail Design Expo and RBTE conference programmes.

SDEA ran its popular Best Members' Stand Award again at this year's show which saw Display By Design take the top spot in a close fought contest voted for by SDEA Members.

Exhibitors have been praising the show, and the number and relevance of the visitors who came. Many exhibitors have already started the rebooking process for Retail Design Expo 2018, less than 24 hours after the doors closed on this year's Expo.
