Retail Shopfitting & Display Summit 2018 - Putting industry trends in sharp focus

The Key Finance team attended the Retail Shopfitting & Display Summit this week - and it was a great forum for the industry to come together, make new connections and exchange ideas.

A clear theme running through both days of the event was how retailers can make sustainable profit from new store concepts, designs and re-fits.

There was also plenty of discussion around new technologies, such a visual merchandising, omni-channel marketing and experiential stores, plus how 'bricks and mortar' stores can thrive side by side with digital outlets.

As such, we spent a lot of time on our stand talking to retailers about their current projects challenges, and concerns - and the ways in which Key Finance can help.

Our Shopfit Funder tool provides a way for retailers to finance a huge variety of projects, including shop builds, shopfits and shop refits, in addition to the build and maintenance of warehouse and distribution centres - encompassing everything from fixtures & fittings and IT, through to architectural and planning costs.

In fact, we launched the product at the Retail Shopfitting & Display Summit last year, so we were able offer detail on how it has evolved since then, plus give case study insight from dozens of real-life deployments

We also had positive discussions regarding our Vendor Programme, which is designed to help industry suppliers offer quick and easy finance solutions to their clients.

So, whether we had the pleasure of meeting you at the show, or you would like more info on the above, we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have - whether related to Shopfit Funder, our Vendor Programme or the wider world of finance.
