About Completely Retail MarketPlace
As a result of industry wide demand for a London based, one day, deals focused event, the first Completely Retail Market Place took place at Old Spitalfields Market on 1st May 2012. The simple, all-inclusive format reflected the economic climate, and made it accessible for all sizes of retail property companies to come together and explore retail property opportunities.
What is it about?
Simple. Doing deals. No seminars, elaborate catering or add-ons. We are offering an environment purely for agents, landlords and most importantly, retailers, to talk about property opportunities.
Following extensive research, CompletelyRetail.co.uk, the free-to-view database of all UK retail property, recognised that there was a gap in the market for a cost effective event that is solely about doing deals.
A market of course! Old Billingsgate Market is in the heart of the City of London; the Grade II Victorian building that was originally Billingsgate fish market provides a flexible space in a convenient retail location close to a range of London Tube Stations.
What's the format?
The format is simple, but professional. There are no elaborate exhibition stands. Instead a segregated space within the market will comprise of 65 fully furnished and branded meeting areas, or stalls. Other meeting areas around the event will be provided for delegates. Free WiFi access and liquid refreshments will be provided throughout the day to all delegates. And to make sure attendees get the most out of the event we're also providing an online function to help people contact other delegates and book meetings ahead of the event.
There will be a drinks reception held outside the venue on the terrace overlooking the river thames between 5 -7pm. Food and drink will be served along with live entertainment. All registered delegates and exhibitors are welcome to join us.
