Guided by an Expert in Retail Trends

Stratten, an expert in identifying and analyzing emerging trends in the retail sector, and he often leads retail safaris to showcase cutting-edge retail concepts and experiences. He is a regular speaker at Source Fashion, specialises in retail innovation and future trends, is known for his insightful commentary and ability to help businesses understand and adapt to the rapidly evolving retail landscape.

Stratten says, “We’ll be going to a diverse range of some of London’s most remarkable retail stores, and in doing so we will create a picture of how the future of physical retail might look. From global flagships to quirky boutiques across Soho and the West End, our tour will examine the changing role of stores – from marketing and storytelling to rich experiences and problem-solving. In a world of growing digital influence, stores have to do more than just sell – and London offers a fascinating glimpse into what’s coming next. And as ever, our experience and network ensure we get a glimpse behind the scenes of retail too.”

Insights from Source Fashion’s Event Director

Event Director Suzanne Ellingham says, “We talk a lot within Source about the importance of storytelling and connecting with customers, and how great retail blends the digital and physical experience. But the reality is that great retail is about connecting with customers in new ways, and London is a fantastic retail destination packed with innovation and experience, we wanted to offer up an opportunity to our visitors to see what different retailers are doing. People always want to find out what good looks like, or what their peers are up to, this is a fantastic opportunity to do just that.”
