Visa letters

If you need a visa to attend the Retail Technology Show it is essential that you begin the application process as soon as possible, in order that you obtain your visa in time for the show or registration deadline. Visa application procedures for entering many countries, and in particular the UK, have become stricter and more complex following Covid-19, and therefore it can take much longer to process your application than anticipated. You must submit your own application to the relevant authority and follow up accordingly. The Retail Technology Show is unable to follow up your application on your behalf or enter into direct correspondence with consulates.

A Visa Support Letter will ONLY be issued to SPEAKERS and EXHIBITORS who have been invited by the Retail Technology Show or who have paid their exhibition registration fee in full. Once we have confirmed receipt of payment from the proposed attendee, we will need the full name, nationality, passport number, expiry date and date of birth for the attendee, only then can we issue a Visa Support Letter. The Visa Support Letter will confirm the event title, date and location. It will also confirm whether the individual is a speaker or exhibitor. It will not imply any undertaking to provide funding nor act as financial guarantee for your stay in the UK. The Retail Technology Show reserves the right not to issue a Visa Support Letter in certain cases even if above conditions have been met. Exhibition Fees will not be refunded in the case of a Visa not being obtained.

At The Show 

Where can I eat and Drink?

Themed cafés serving items ranging from light snacks and refreshments to hot meals and drinks can be found within the venue. Please find the full catering map here 

How do I find my way around the show once I’m there?

On arrival to Olympia, printed brochures with floorplans can be collected at the entrance. There will also be access to the floor plan through the visitor portal and app. 

Are you able to book the conferences?

No, our conferences / seminars are run on a first come, first served basis. All we advise is that visitors arrive at the seminars in plenty of time to avoid any disappointment.
