Our Objectives

Retail technology is developing fast as consumers and retail businesses embrace multi and omni-channel modes of selling and shopping. The TLA Retail Tech Group brings together online and offline focussed startups, experts and practitioners in this exciting area of digital innovation. Our mission is to promote London as a centre of Retail Tech innovation, supporting start-ups in this sector and facilitating dialogue between members.

In 2018 we celebrated the launch of our RetailTech 50 List. Coverage of the list can be found on The Evening StandardTech HQ, and Medium

Our events feature speakers from innovative high street brands to startups pushing the boundaries of retail tech including, Farfetch, River Island, Google, Sainsbury’s, Lone Design Club and Mishipay. Sign up to be the first to hear about our upcoming events!
