RBTE Innovation Awards & Trail

Innovation in the spotlight at RBTE 

Innovation has become increasingly critical to the successful modern multichannel retailer and therefore sits at the heart of RBTE.  It’s what our visitors always say they want to see more of.  We know that our exhibitors have some amazing innovations that can dramatically change and improve retailers’ businesses, so we’ve created a platform for RBTE exhibitors to showcase the very best solutions, products and services that are shaping the way that the retail industry will evolve.

We think retail is the most exciting and dynamic industry, and we believe that the people who work in retail deserve the opportunity to see the ground breaking innovation available to help run their business even better all under one roof with the RBTE Innovation Awards and Trail sponsored by Aptos.

Launched at RBTE 2015, the RBTE Innovation programme is now a hugely important part of the show, and proves highly popular with the exhibitors who are selected to take part, and with visitors to RBTE who make a beeline for the selected stands.

Exhibitors at RBTE are invited to submit entries to take part in the Innovation Trail and Awards. The entries will be reviewed by a judging panel of experts. The shortlisted entries will be featured in the Innovation Trail at RBTE, and highlighted on the ‘Winners Wall’, with the overall winner being announced at RBTE on the first day at the Big Party.
