The Out of Home Gala Returns: Everybody Back on the Boat!

The countdown to D Day has begun on what promises to be the biggest and best ever Smart Retail Solutions Out of Home Summer Gala.

This year’s event will be held at The Steel Yard, Allhallows Lane, London, on Thursday, June 6 starting at 10.00am (and by the way, that’s the day after the Vendies, so if you’re coming to town for that…)

In addition to a panel discussion – which will feature, among others, Nicola Knight from IGD – and an interactive session, attendees will be addressed by a high profile guest speaker, namely Jim Brinton, the founder, CEO and Chairman of Avanti Markets and Evergreen Refreshments. He’ll be on hand to discuss the challenges of automated retail and how he overcame them; enabling his unattended retail businesses to grow into the large-scale operations they’ve become. Another highlight will be the official launch of Smart Retail Solutions’ business offers for 2024. New kit, technology and prices will all be revealed on the day.

Smart Retail SolutionsNow in its fourth year, the Smart Retail Solutions Out of Home Summer Gala has established itself as a key networking event for entrepreneurs who wish to maximise their presence in automated retail, and with industry experts on hand to offer a one stop shop solution across award-winning equipment, technology, food & beverage and vending furniture, that’s hardly surprising.

The gala is organised by Smart Retail Solutions, whose member companies are 365 Retail Markets, Nebrak, Britvic, Coffeetek, Kepak and Pepsico.

Carl Hunter, Automated Retail & New Business Controller at Kepak Group, says this year’s gala is one not to be missed: ‘The day will focus not only on business-boosting developments in automated retail solutions, but also it will share important insights. We’ve created, in our three previous events, the perfect environment in which to explore opportunities and discuss tailored solutions to address specific client requirements and we’re confident that 2024 will be the best yet. I’d urge to those who are thinking of attending to book as soon as possiblee, to avoid disappointment.
