RLI Connect - Bringing The Deals To You

Taking place on 4-5 June 2014 at Stamford Bridge, London, the home of Chelsea Football Club, RLI Connect – the world’s first global retail and leisure property deal-making forum is set to provide an ideal opportunity of face-time with key global retail and leisure decision makers for the second time.

The RLI Connect deal-making forum provides a sustained platform for doing business and building value through strategic partnerships, on a truly global scale. Jayne Rafter, Publisher of RLI Magazine and founder of RLI Connect, said: “RLI Connect is the perfect platform to bring together international developers, retailers, leisure operators and industry peers in an ‘easy and relaxed’ meeting environment which connects the brands with the franchise operators and shopping centre owners to clinch deals and build up long-lasting and meaningful international relationships.”

RLI Connect aims to once again attract the largest number of actively growing retail and leisure concepts internationally, as well as the hottest up-and-coming concepts. Instead of weeks of impersonal emails and phone, goals can be accomplished in a single day, resulting in longlasting, profitable relationships and that all-important deal.

There will be no conference or panel sessions at the RLI Connect event, just a focuse, highenergy forum for networking and deal-making, with the combination of moving existing deals along and being introduced to new deals, and the opportunity to collaborate and share knowledge with top performers in the retail and leisure real estate industry.

Sands Retail, part of Las Vegas Sands Corporation and a world leader in the development of integrated resort destinations, has been announced as Headline Sponsor of the event, while the Gold Sponsor is US-based Thor Equities.

Following invaluable feedback in 2013, RLI will be adding a fresh spin in 2014. New additions include Speed Matchmaking Sessions; an improved online Database making it easier to connect from day one; colour-coded badges to help distinguish between Retailers, Developers and Affiliated Companies; and an additional Networking Lounge to ensure maximum connectivity.
