The launch edition of the Retail Business Technology Expo drew 4,200 visitors to Earls Court.

Running from 16 to 17 March and organised by Legend Exhibitions, the show aimed to fill a gap left by Emap’s cancelled Retail Solutions expo and the Retail Business Show organised by the defunct
Retail Events.

Next year, event director Nick Field hopes to see significant expansion in terms of net space and visitor numbers.

“A lot of the key players sit on the sidelines to see what happens the first year,” he told EN. “We were lucky to have Hewlett Packard and Microsoft taking quite big stands but we know many more big companies came along as visitors and will be coming as exhibitors next year.”

The show also included the Cards and Payments Solutions exhibition.
