Retail Summit


The Retail Summit was founded in 2018 by friends and colleagues, Gary Thatcher and Marc Howard. 

Whilst working at large, corporate events businesses they became disillusioned by the lack of community building and market immersion due to high churn (and high turnover).

Determined to create a truly global platform that brings together and serves the wider retail community, together they set out to develop a relevant, strategic event that inspires and directly meets the needs of retail leaders across the world.

Returning to the Atlantis Dubai on April 23 & 24, the 2024 Retail Summit agenda is packed world-class speakers, a pan-retail global audience, the latest innovations and strategic networking oppurtunities.
