In-person events. Just under a year ago, these words were better off labelled as wishful thinking. The pandemic changed our day-to-day normality, and what used to be the ordinary became the mythical. We resigned ourselves to networking events confined to Zoom and let out habitual sighs at the thought of post-work virtual drinks.
One year on, it’s a different story. For the first time in over 18 months, the Go Instore team attended an in-person event…and it sure wasn’t one to miss.
Back and better than ever, we headed to the Magazine in Greenwich for Retail Week Live 2021. The event saw talks from retail giants such as John Lewis, FarFetch, IKEA and Tesco, and sponsorships from tech giants SalesForce and OpenPay.
Pitching to a live audience was our very own sales superstar, Alicia Jackson. Alicia’s pitch lasted three minutes, complete with demonstrations and a live Q&A from the audience at the end. Go Instore’s pod in the discovery area was manned by the sales dream team of Jeremy Dodd and Claudia Covino. Our pod even boasted some special Go Instore merch (bottle opener, anyone?!).
Though this was the first event in a long time for Go Instore, it definitely won’t be the last. We can’t wait to get stuck back in!
