Sponsors of The Retail Conferences

Sponsors are vital to ensuring that we continue to offer quality insights, exciting innovations and low-cost attendance to retailers. When you sponsor one of the Retail Conferences you help us to widen our audience, welcoming more quality delegates who otherwise may not have been able to attend.

We are currently inviting sponsors for our 2017 events, with those already confirmed listed below.

Sponsor: Mobaro Retail

Sponsor: Mobaro RetailRetail businesses are under considerable financial pressure. With rising business rates and minimum wage, consumer confidence issues due to Brexit and the General Election, and the devalued pound, retailers need to radically improve operational efficiency, eliminate waste, address issues at the root cause, and increase sales performance. If this sounds familiar then we'd love to talk to you...

Mobaro Retail enables multi-location consumer-facing businesses to get immediate insight into the state of the operations, no matter how wide the geographic distribution of stores.

£millions are spent by retail HQ teams, on activities such as marketing and promotional campaigns, to VM, remerchandising instructions, and layout chances, with the intention of maximising sales and margin. However, in far too many cases the information flow is one way - once the store instructions are released to stores there is no immediate feedback loop, or insight, for all those invested in the operational execution of the activities. Furthermore, store staff have no robust mechanism to report issues or be reassured that action to resolve problems is underway. Apart from anecdotal feedback claiming that poor store implementation or low compliance is to blame, there is no true context to what causes some promotions or campaigns to underperform.
All this uncertainty leads to poor quality decision making, but more importantly, lack of clear communications, follow-up, insight, and issue resolution, puts all the collective effort, and investment, at risk of failing to produce the desired results.

Mobaro Retail is an easy to use app that allows HQ and ops teams to share operational activity lists, with all supporting documents (such as VM instructions) with stores. Stores complete simple, intelligent digital "checklists" to confirm actions are complete, or if not, and there are issues, they can request the necessary support.
Data from stores populates a management dashboard, in real time, where your KPIs and key indicators are presented in visually engaging graphics, all of which are "drillable" to the detail data.
Why not contact us for a FREE trial of Mobaro Retail, and discover how it could be an essential part of your store teams' tool-kit, getting colleagues out of the office and onto the shop floor.

Sponsor: Soundtrack Your Brand

Sponsor: Soundtrack Your BrandSoundtrack Your Brand (Spotify's only investment in the business music world) want to raise the awareness of the recent studies on
a) the positive impact of brand fitting music on in store sales/customer experience and
b) how playing customer fitting music (music not fitting the brand) can hurt sales more than silence.

Putting music on and assuming this is immediately an improvement on silence, is not the reality at all. We want to explain to businesses how we can help them leverage brand fitting music to grow their business and have control of music in the palm of their hand, just like in their personal lives.
