We realise that following the Pandemic there will be a significant number of international delegates that still have restrictions on overseas travel, which could be in place for the remainder of 2020 and into 2021, so after much deliberation we have finally made the decision to change the format of this year’s events to Virtual Online events, broadcast globally. Our Partners, Delegates and guests’ welfare remain our top priority, and although we may not be able to physically meet in person we intend to continue connecting the industry internationally creating virtual, phygital experiences like no other.

RLI Connect Global Virtual 2020 will be the World’s First Virtual Global Deal-Making Event for the Retail & Leisure Industry, to take place 1-2 September and will continue to connect the world of Retail, Leisure & Entertainment with those all-important pre-arranged one to one meetings in a private meeting room environment, the only difference will be that you do not have to travel thousands of miles to connect and can do it from the comfort of your own office or home environment.

To all intents and purposes you will receive everything you would have done at Wembley except for the F&B but with the potential of a far greater global audience.
