Retail Live! is similar to many networking events; there is an exhibit part of the program as well as a reception. The key difference is that ONLY retailers are allowed to have an exhibit at the Retail Live! trade show; there will be no architect, developer, or contractor exhibitors unless they are one of the few premium event sponsors. The reason this is important is that it drives the attendance, when people know they are getting in front of 150+ retailers, they attend. In less than a day participants get a chance to network directly with retailers actively expanding in the Southeast including Florida, Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, North Carolina. Conversely brokers, landlords, developers and other related industry professionals have the chance to present their projects or services to these retailers. In many ways this is the opposite of a typical industry event, it is laid back, attire is casual, meetings are impromptu and the ambiance is festive.

At registration each registrant receives a Retail Live! Trade Book with each participating retailer’s site specifications, areas of expansion in the Region and real estate contact information. This is where it benefits the retailers and their real estate partners, they get a chance to get their contact information out together with their client's site criteria to hundreds of people in less than a full's days work. It is much more productive than cold calling and email blasts, or 30 minute meeting blocks such is the case at more traditional event programs where you can only fit in 20 meetings assuming your schedule is completely full. At Retail Live! registrants get the chance to speak to at least 5 times that amount at a 4 hour trade show.
The trade show is immediately followed by a reception with great food, cocktails and Live! entertainment, for additional opportunities to network with all the retailers and industry professionals.
Retail Live! is a great excuse for people to visit Orlando, network with people from all over the Southeast with minimal time commitment and experience Live! entertainment. And who isn’t looking for an excuse to come to sunny Florida?
We look forward to seeing you at Retail Live Orlando 2017!
