Entrepreneur and Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis to deliver keynote at Revo Conference 2021
We’ve announced today that entrepreneur and Dragons’ Den star Theo Paphitis will be the keynote speaker at the Revo Conference 2021.
The conference is part of the Completely Retail Marketplace event, taking place on 28 September at Old Billingsgate Market, London.
In his address, Mr Paphitis will give his views on what the next 6 months holds for the UK retail sector, how Covid-19 may reshape the high street and the role physical retail will play in the economic recovery.
He will be joined on the Revo conference programme by Richard Morris, UK Chief Executive of IWG, who will discuss the return to the office and the role of flexible workspace alongside retail in dynamic town and city centres.
The programme also features a debate, led by Revo Hub. Featuring Grigor Grigorov from global architecture practice Make, and Poppy Wilcox, from the sustainability team at Grosvenor, they will discuss what the high street could look like in five years’ time. As well as a session led by Howard Ebison, Operations Director at Hammerson, on how successful retail places are embracing inclusivity and diversity.
Revo is re-launching its annual conference in partnership with Completely Retail Marketplace, which will also host its flagship exhibition at Old Billingsgate Market on 28 September, with flexible tickets options available.

It is a critical time for our industry and for town and city centres.
