Digital in Retail and Hospitality

Register for the programme

Now more than ever, digital plays a crucial role in helping retailers build resilience and growth. During the pandemic, we’ve seen retailers adopt digital platforms to continue sales, or use in-store technology such as ordering stations to reduce face-to-face interactions and minimise the risk of having to self-isolate.

At our first 'in person' event for retailers and hospitality held at the Malmaison Hotel on Newcastle's Quayside, we will hear from retail and hospitality businesses about how they have used digital within their business. We will also outline current grants and funding opportunities for implementing digital.

The event will close with a Q&A Panel featuring digital & innovation experts to help you answer your questions surrounding digital.


* Start: Networking with drinks and food;

* Overview of available grants for implementing digital;

* Keynote Speech: Tony Taylor, IT & Business Change Director from Greggs;

* Panel with retail and hospitality businesses;

* Q&A with the Digital Pathfinders innovation team;

* Close & networking.

Speakers and schedule timings to be confirmed nearer the date.

Please Note: If you wish to attend this event, you need to register with the Digital Pathfinders programme. Registering for the programme will open up access to more events, one-to-one support and in some cases event funding opportunities.
