New “Soapbox” initiative gives retailers a voice at April’s CRMP

At our sell out Completely Retail & Leisure Marketplace event on the 29th of April we are introducing a new and exciting opportunity for ambitious retailers and occupiers. We’re holding a series of break out sessions that will be known as Soapbox. Just 20 emerging retail brands will give a three minute presentation focusing on their expansion plans to the individuals responsible for the UK's leading retail and leisure destinations.

Expanding businesses will have the opportunity to raise their profiles with the key players in retail and leisure property and explain their property requirements. We estimate as many as 200 retail and leisure property professionals will be in the room at Old Billingsgate Market and most of the major retail destinations will be represented.

Dominic Millar, Managing Director of The Completely Group commented “It will be a great opportunity for the brands that present. They’ll have the chance to explain their property requirements to many of the agents and landlords that could facilitate their growth strategies in one fell swoop.”

We'll be publicising the line up of brands before the event, and films of the presentations will be made available on the Connect website after the event.
