Sponsor: Rewarding Visits

If you're unsure how to bring the "Digital High Street" to your town in a practical or affordable way, then we invite you to visit the Touchpoint at the Future High Street Expo.

Use a Touchpoint to promote your town to visitors and display promotional offers from retailers, for users to print as vouchers. You'll gain insight and a digital contact database.

Touchpoints are branded to suit and come compete with your own card, app and mobile website, or can integrate with an existing card or app.
Ideal for BIDs and Councils, digital rental packages start at £39 per week.

Supporter: Colliers

With business rates experts present across our national offices, we can manage large portfolios on a local level rather than from one centralised office.

This local presence means that we have stronger working relationships with local VOA Surveyors and billing authorities, along with local knowledge of markets. This enables us to maximise savings and identify opportunities such as Material Changes of Circumstance Appeals at an early stage.

Our rating and audit specialists are from both the market, billing authorities and the VOA. They have experience across all aspects of retail including: high street shopping centres, 'out of town' larger stores, supermarkets and more niche retail outlets.

Sponsor: #WDYT

#WDYT (What do you think) is a Government backed, business led campaign that is accelerating the evolution of our towns and cities. It helps towns, retailers and local businesses connect with consumers through digital channels.
Research by Loughborough University in our initial pilot towns reveals that up to 74% of high street retailers nationally do not have an active social media presence, 55% have no e-commerce facility and 40% do not have a website. This data is in stark contrast to consumers, where every piece of research points to the accelerating importance of digital visibility. Places and retailers that are not part of an online conversation are now trading on a back street, not the high street.

The #WDYT campaign is live in 7 towns and is gearing up for a national roll out. We are identifying towns, retailers and associations that will be part of the next phase of accelerating the Digital High Street program across the UK
