Looking ahead

Moving forward

Completely Retail Marketplace announce their event dates for 2020. The European event series is set to go even further to support key retail markets

Although 2019 proved a challenging year for the retail market, the Completely Retail Marketplace events across Europe (London, Stockholm, Madrid and Prague) proved that the industry is indeed buzzing with innovation, exciting new concepts and developments rebranding as ‘destinations’ for living, work and play in addition to shopping. The word ‘sustainability’ was also a hot topic, with more and more companies making a conscious effort to reduce their impact in the ongoing global climate crisis.

Unique from any other retail property event, Completely Retail Marketplace operates a no-fuss, stripped format, where a targeted gathering of retailers, e-tailers, property agents, landlords, franchise operators, developers and shopping centres meet to network and discuss site opportunities and growth within the respective retail markets.

Giving brands a voice

To further support brands looking to grow within a certain market, Completely Retail Marketplace runs its regular Soapbox fixture at each event.

The Soapbox stage enables brands that are embryonic, or established yet growing, to take to a stage in front of an audience of the event’s attending agents and landlords and pitch their concepts and expansion plans.

Previous brands who have taken part in Soapbox include London Grace, PureGym Local, Engenie, Fruitisimo, Dashl, Dum Dum Donuts, MADE.COM, Pirate Studios, SLAW, Monemel, Tortilla, Nacion Sushi and The Athenian.

“As a new restaurant business, Completely Retail Marketplace was a fantastic opportunity to raise our profile with property agents and landlords. Our Soapbox presentation was very well received and led to some fruitful connections and conversations. We also loved our full page spread in the event guide - One Day Magazine.”

Introducing Cityscape Marketplace

Completely Events have partnered with Informa Markets, organisers of the Cityscape real estate events across the Middle East, to jointly organise a brand new event in the UK – Cityscape Marketplace. The brand new two-day event is expected to attract investors from across the globe who are looking for partnerships and investment opportunities spanning the real estate spectrum.

Set over two days, Cityscape Marketplace focuses on the global trend for urbanisation, which is driving a steady migration of populations into conurbations. It’s a place where property investors and developers can meet to discuss the future of the trend and upcoming projects.

Cityscape Marketplace will take place on 29th-30th April 2020 at Old Billingsgate Market, an accessible and iconic venue in the heart of the City of London.
