Offering three days of educational programming, an expo featuring retail solutions and trends and opportunities to explore the latest in retail technology, NRF 2023: Retail’s Big Show starts this weekend in New York City, hosted by the National Retail Federation (NRF). Until Jan. 11, retailers can register for a free expo pass to Retail’s Big Show to receive access to all the activities, events and networking opportunities. The event, which returned in-person last year after a short pandemic hiatus, will focus on innovations and breakthroughs in retail.
Highlights at the conference will include the Innovation Lab, an exhibit showcasing artificial intelligence, augmented reality, robotics and other technologies, along with the Startup Zone, where you can meet the newest companies with the latest innovative ideas.
Attendees can also attend over 100 different sessions featuring demos and case studies presented by solution providers and their retail clients. In the Consumer Product Showcase, attendees will discover up-and-coming products from small businesses, entrepreneurs and minority-owned companies.
“Retailers are continuously looking to diversify their suppliers and portfolio of product offerings to their customers,” says NRF senior vice president of conferences Susan Newman. “NRF’s Consumer Product Showcase will facilitate these invaluable connections, providing the opportunity for dynamic products from suppliers, entrepreneurs, small businesses and brands to shine on a national stage.”
NHPA’s senior editor Lindsey Thompson will be attending Retail’s Big Show and reporting on the latest retail trends in technology, employee engagement and more.
