2018 Social Retail Conference

Come and experience the Momentum.

Momentum is the theme of our 2018 European Social Retail Conference (SRC) to be held at the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel in Brussels on 27th/28th January 2018. It is an appropriate theme too at a time when the Modere phenomenon is picking up momentum around the world. Europe is no exception. We’re seeing exciting growth and would love you to join us as we roll out our 2018 plan. The SRC enables you to join our Leaders, other Social Marketers and special guests for two inspirational days as we shine the spotlight on the industry, the Modere model and our market growth.

The venue
The Radisson Blu Royal Hotel is located in the center of Brussels and is just minutes from top attractions. You can take a leisurely stroll to the Grand Place, the Royal Palace, the Magritte Museum and many other cultural attractions from the hotel. Browse the city’s famous chocolate shops or step out in the evening to experience the local nightlife.

SRC 2018 Agenda

I’m going to the SRC 2018 and I’m taking…

Whilst we look forward to celebrating together at the SRC in Brussels, let’s also take the time to think of those who may need a little extra help at this time of year.

Can you squeeze a little extra item of clothing into your luggage?  Preferably something snuggly and warm that you won’t be taking home with you….

We will be accepting clothing donations for the asbl Chez Nous-Bij Ons vzw charity, which provides shelter, clothing and other support for the homeless in Brussels.  Spare your thoughts and then spare an item you simply don’t need any more.  All items are most gratefully received, and everything gets used.

Stay up to date
Keep an eye on the Shifting Retail Facebook and Twitter pages, as we will be posting regular important updates on the event.
