The Retail Future will promote direct contact between digital experts and small businesses

The showroom that promotes digitalization and access to technology for small businesses and crafts will open its doors from 17 to 19 October.

RETAIL future, the digitalisation and technology showroom for small businesses and craftsmen is already working on a second edition that will be held in Valencia from 17 to 19 October.

This second edition will once again be held within the framework of the Franchise Show (SIF) aimed at retailers and craftsmen with the aim of continuing to break down barriers to digital transformation and the incorporation of information and communication technologies into their businesses.

At RETAIL future, small craftsmen and traders will be able to find out about the infinite possibilities offered by the digital world: from expanding their markets thanks to social networks or online advertising, to incorporating technology into management, to improving online sales or integrating into sales platforms or marketplaces.

The organisation of RETAIL future has been working for months on this second edition, which will have three different spaces: a Forum as an exhibition and debate area to share knowledge; a Showroom where attendees will find suppliers with the latest technological trends to adapt and improve their businesses and a Networking area to put technology suppliers in direct contact with potential customers.
