A review of NRF Big Show, New York, January 2020

NRF Big Show is simply best in class for retail technology vendors. 3 This was our third visit to NRF Big Show in New York. Every time we have tried to pack as much into the three days as possible, including the many breakfast meetings, evening meetups and more.

Central Research Laboratory Pitch Event, London - Nov 28th, 2019

Our scores for the evening as a whole: Startups: 2/5Organisation 5/5Networking opportunities: 4/5Event location: 5/5 (big shout...
