RBTE adds to international retail reach

Retail Business Technology Expo (RBTE), Europe’s biggest and fastest growing retail show, has boosted its international reach and retail credentials with the appointment of Richard Mader to its executive team.

Mader will serve as the RBTE representative in the US.

Mader brings with him over 40 years of experience in the retail industry and was formerly executive director of the Association for Retail Technology Standards (ARTS), a division of the National Retail Federation.

Richard was one of our earliest supporters when we launched the show and was integral in building the strong relationship that we now enjoy with ARTS and the NRF

ARTS was founded in 1993 to lower the cost of retail technology through standards.

Nick Field, event director, Retail Business Technology Expo, said: “Richard was one of our earliest supporters when we launched the show and was integral in building the strong relationship that we now enjoy with ARTS and the NRF. His experience and contacts with the retail industry in the US and across Europe will prove invaluable. he is recognised as a leader in retail information throughout the world having made presentations at retail and distribution conferences in the US, South Africa, Europe, UK, and Japan.”

“Having seen the team at RBTE grow the show so successfully since its launch in 2011, I’m looking forward to being part of such a dynamic organisation,” said Mader. “They are passionate about delivering the very best event possible for the retail industry, and work closely with retailers, vendors and other retail stakeholders to ensure all enjoy maximum benefits from attending and exhibiting.”

Retail Business Technology Expo takes place for the third time on 12-13 March 2012 at London’s Earls Court, South Hall.
