Welcome to

Retaissance Live – 2nd Edition 

Exclusive Online Meet the Buyer Event to boost trade and innovation in the retail sector. 

For the retail industry, 2020 was the year everything changed with conventional business models and ways of driving channel engagement disrupted. Technology has enabled many brands and retailers to keep their trading. The trading conditions in 2022 are likely to be still challenging. Therefore, diversifying their sales and markets is essential to grow their revenues. 

To support the rebuild of the independents, Retaissance in partnership with Enterprise Europe Network is organising the 2nd edition of Retaissance Live to help European Fashion and Lifestyle premium brands connect to facilitate innovation, trade and overcome current challenges. Buyers representing more than 800 physical stores and e-commerce platforms with more than 50 million customers in 35 countries worldwide have registered to this exclusive event.

Retaissance specialises in creating a fair and level playing field for independent brands within the sectors of fashion, footwear, jewellery, beauty, childrenswear and accessories to increase their brand presence and sales revenue globally. 

Key dates 

Between 27th October and 1st November, the buyers will contact selected brands and request meetings on 9th November.

On 3rd November 2021, registered companies will take part in an exclusive 3-hour workshop to help them develop a compelling value proposition and pitch to buyers, and insights to ensure that their e-commerce practices are efficient. 

This workshop will be delivered by: 

  • UK's leading retailing aggregator, Retaissance, is a leading fashion and lifestyle agency building a community of premium independent brands, and providing them with a fair and level playing field to enable trade and build their global presence and revenue.
  • NuORDER, US-based leading B2B e-commerce platform helping brands deliver a seamless, more collaborative wholesale process, where buyers can browse products, plan assortments and make smarter buys in real-time. 

On 9th November 2021, the handpicked selection of independent brands will meet online with buyers that have selected them to present their products and pitch their offering. Our partners carefully select the brands in advance to ensure they align with their current brand portfolio and core values. So both brands and retailers can get down to business on the day. 


Participation to this event is free of charge in order to support the rapidly evolving retail sector and innovative brands. 

This package of support (workshop and 3 meetings with buyers on average) is worth a staggering £10,000 to each brand.
