retailX and Tealium partnership

RetailX European Executive Network Dinners in association with Tealium

To complement our Europe Top1000 research, an executive networking dinner series for the people driving performance in direct to consumer digital commerce

For the last 8 years we have been researching the performance of the best retailers and brands across Europe. We cover company performance, the market context in each country and the vertical sector dynamics. However, retail performance is made possible by people, and so the dinner series is a way to connect Europe’s leaders via informal, confidential dinners – where peers can exchange experiences and ideas.

Tealium has been a research partner for many years supporting the production of our ranking research such as the RXEU Top1000, EU Top500 Brands going D2C, and the UK Country Ecommerce Report 2022

What are the dinners?

Sales-free, presentation-free, confidential and convivial gatherings… Five-star dining and even better company! 20 retail, digital, consumer leaders from across sectors and verticals networking – where the common topic is how to connect with the demanding, savvy, digital consumer.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you really not have sales or presentations?

Not a slide, not a forced “talk about this topic”, no pre-reading, nothing. We arrive, chat, sit for dinner and chat, that’s it. It’s all about conversation and meeting interesting leaders.

Can I come with a colleague?

No. Sorry. It’s one person per company. This ensures that your evening is all about meeting new people and not continuing office conversations over dinner.

What do you mean by ‘confidential’?

The evenings are off the record and held under the honour system known as the Chatham House Rule – You can discuss matters freely without being quoted or named as the source. All guests are asked to agree to this.

Why are the dinners in English? ​

We chose English since it’s the common language for business leaders across Europe. Our board-level guests speak English, often work in English and are growth-focused, looking to other countries than their own. In addition we like to bring guests from other countries to network across borders. However, during the evening you can converse with your fellow diners in whatever language you wish and we would expect nothing else!
