The future for retail stores is unknown. It is vital that industry adapt to remain viable.

While retailers rush to latch on to the latest tech trends, the main focus must be the establishment and projection of a brand and the beauty of the physical store.

The best of brick and mortar is driven by the understanding that design is a profit centre, and great design drives sales.

The Store Transformation Summit taking place in Sydney 29 – 31 August will bring together 30+ international and domestic thought leaders who’ll share expertise with over 150 of their peers who are looking for inspiration and solutions. This is where you fit in.

Showcase your expertise to a highly engaged and motivated audience. Present a case study, hold a dedicated lunch or lead a small group in a discussion around solving their biggest transformation challenges.

We can customise a sponsorship package to match your business development and marketing goals.
