Europe’s leading meeting place for Retail and Property

Completely Retail Marketplace is a series of events that take place across multiple countries, where retail and leisure brands meet and network with a diverse range of property agents, landlords, shopping centre owners, franchise operators and organisations to discuss the market and opportunities for space.

The format of the show is stripped-back for optimum effectiveness. All the exhibition stands are the same size to enable a level playing field. Exhibitors and visitors meet, network, exchange market insight and requirements, set up deals, then leave in a better, more-connected position than before they went in, simple.

All delegates representing a brand attend for free and can benefit from a monetary contribution towards flights if arriving from overseas*.

How did it all begin?

Created by Dom Millar, CEO of The Completely Group, the Marketplace format was initially conceived to help the struggling 2012 UK retail industry get back on its feet.

The first event in London facilitated not only new connections between retailers and property professionals, but also the accelerated acquisition of new bricks and mortar stores, pop-ups, kiosks and pretty much any other creative space you can think of.

Today, Completely Retail Marketplace has a dedicated team of event management, marketing, sales and international specialists, who offer a personalised, expert service to ensure every delegate benefits from the show and meets the right people.

Marketplace now operates in London, Stockholm, Madrid and Prague.
