The London retail market is a hotspot for the latest innovation and, as competition increases, it is important to keep up to date with these trends.

IGD experts are leading an immersive experience this June. Delegates will tour London’s best stores, across convenience, supermarkets and food-to-go to see which concepts are adding value and find out why. The experience is designed to inspire you by showcasing what’s new and different in retail.
