Revo Conference & Exhibit: 17 – 19 September 2019
Revo Liverpool 2019 is the UK’s largest gathering of people and businesses that together create, deliver, operate and occupy great places to live, work, shop, eat and be entertained, being held at Exhibition Centre Liverpool from 17 – 19 September 2019.
The retail Industry is changing.
2,200+ senior decision makers
The way people shop is changing – no longer just for goods but for experience. An over-supply of retail space has become clear and as an industry we are re-purposing and transforming spaces and places to deliver formats and experiences that are relevant, vibrant and engaging to our customers and our wider communities. And as part of this, we are also transforming our businesses.
That means engaging with, and understanding, other parts of the real estate, infrastructure, retail and placemaking sector is critical as we move towards more dynamic, mixed-use destinations.

- Attendees from over 1000 influential companies.
- An exclusive community of the most senior key decision makers, influencers and experts – as one captive audience.

Study Tour to Royal Albert Dock
Designed by Jesse Hartley and originally opened in 1846, Albert Dock is the largest group of Grade I listed buildings in the UK, and located on the spectacular Liverpool waterfront – a UNESCO world heritage site. There is no better backdrop for the creation of a prime retail and leisure destination. The Dock was recently awarded Royal status to mark its role in the City’s maritime history.
Since acquiring the commercial element in 2016, Aberdeen Standard Investments have undertaken works to reconfigure much of the commercial space to increase its appeal and suitability to a new mix of operators. Albert Dock is a unique space and the letting strategy has been reflective of this, with quality, independent operators across all sectors having been carefully targeted to join a strong, new line-up.
Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool, as it is now known, has been a tourist hot-spot since it was re-developed in the 1980’s, with 6.2 million visitors to the Estate during 2018. The ASI strategy is to create a destination which appeals to both tourists and the local audience.
Book your place here. Places are limited and we can only accept one booking per company on a first-come, first-served basis.
