The “Way Up” was held on the 24th Floor of The Shard, on January 7th 2019, against the backdrop of London’s skyline. This Global Summit celebrated the fantastic achievements of the Sekura Global teams in 2018, with both sales and growth way up on 2017, recognizing the collective successes of everyone involved. It was part of a three day event designed to bring together Sekura’s principal team members.

Carina Lewis, Global VP of Sales commented: “The Way Up Global Summit was an excellent opportunity for us to meet, network, collaborate and innovate with our colleagues around the world.

“Our focus is on providing high quality solutions to retailers which Save Loss and Save Time, but also enhance the in-store Customer Experience and support initiatives such as ‘friction-less self-checkout’.

“During these three days we have been previewing the latest innovations that we’ll be bringing to market over the coming months, learning how they can improve our customers LP and Ops programs, and providing outstanding ROI for our retail partners”.
