There is nothing like meeting face-to-face! With an amazing selection of retail industry events coming up this month we want to invite you to get involved in engaging discussions, share challenges and solutions, and discover the power of social proof messaging for your business. 

It’s official, autumn has arrived! Out with dazzling summer sales and in with cosy fall trends. As we welcome the pumpkin spice season with open arms, we also welcome back the opportunity to participate in face-to-face retail industry events again.

We are seizing every opportunity to speak to everyone face to face once again. To kick off the new season, we attended The Retail Hive Exchange event which welcomed a truly open-minded community of retail leaders, all coming together to share support, guidance and insights. Event feedback has been overwhelmingly positive from  first time and returning guests alike…

An incredibly well-organised, educational, and fun couple of days, sharing challenges, experiences and solutions. It was my first in-person Hive event, and I was super impressed!” 

“Another great Hive event. Efficient meetings with relevant providers thanks to highly personalised agendas. And such open conversations with peers on a lot of business topics.”

If you weren’t able to catch us at this event there are plenty more opportunities to get involved in the conversation and find out how Taggstar is committed to supporting retailers to maximise the huge growth opportunities in eCommerce – increasing conversion rate uplift and revenue with real-time social proof messaging .  

Read on to see where to find us this October.
