A partnership with huge impact

Retail Technology Show is the event that brings together Europe’s most forward-thinking retailers and leading tech innovators, where retailers can fast-forward their digital transformation strategies and empower their businesses to thrive, survive and disrupt, powered by technological advancements and innovation.

Pennies is honoured to have been a key charity partner of this leading industry event for over four years. It provides a unique opportunity for Pennies to demonstrate our innovative micro-donation solutions, grow our reach and brand recognition, and meet potential partners and customers too – strengthening our position as leaders in the digital donation space.

We’re hugely grateful to Retail Technology Show for their continued support, helping us achieve incredible impact for hundreds of charities. Since first partnering with the RTS team in 2018, Pennies has seen over 100 million micro-donations made through partner merchants, achieving consistent year-on-year growth in spite of the challenges presented by COVID and more recently the cost-of-living crisis. The Retail Technology Show has helped us stay connected to the payments, technology, retail and hospitality businesses that form the heart of the micro-donation movement, and has enabled us to create real social impact for more than 800 charities.

About Retail Technology Show

Launched in April 2021, the Retail Technology Show is brought to you by the experienced team who previously organised the UKs largest retail exhibition: RetailEXPO (formerly RBTE). For ten years we’ve been showing how to evolve ahead of the market, building a community of retailers, brands and hospitality providers with the courage to seize the opportunities ahead.

This event is unlike other expos. Here you can see, feel, hear and touch the future of retail. Be the first to see the ideas as they land. You can try out the tech and meet the people who make it happen. Not on a computer screen but face-to-face. The business interaction we have all missed.

Our conference programme has always been known for bringing together the industry’s leaders and most influential voices. This year will be no exception. This will be the place to gain first-hand insight to shape your growth plans ahead.
