Welcome to R:Evolution 4.0

R:Evolution is our flagship retail and consumer conference created for industry leaders and influencers, senior investors and entrepreneurs

In its 4th year, R:Evolution answered the question: “What’s next for the retail and consumer sectors?”

R:Evolution brought together the leading lights of the industry to share knowledge and insight, and allowed them to plug into the latest thinking, experiences, technology and innovation that will help keep us all ahead of the curve.


Battle of the Titans

Themes covered at this year’s R:Evolution 4.0

Alongside international speakers, we hosted four think tanks. These engaging panels were hosted by those shaping the face of our industry and covered topics including technology and data, innovation, social commerce and content, and the future of retail. Our hotly anticipated "Battle of the Titans" was a future-gazing panel of leadership figures who explored the areas that will be key to shaping our industry over the coming year. Back by popular demand, our high energy Dragons' Den saw the finalists in TrueStart's Summer Campaign pitching for funding. Alongside numerous networking opportunities throughout the day, the event also hosted the TrueStart Emporium that featured a plethora of the most-up-date industry-relevant innovation. An after show party closed the day's festivities.
