Sorry for the cliché, but if you attend only one technology event per year, this should be the one.

There is no better collection of senior retail execs and leading technology vendors, just small enough to engage in enlightening one-on-one talks and just large enough to encompass the current activities and strategy of the broader retail sector.
– VP – LaJolla Group (O’Neill & Rusty)
The RIS News group sets a tone for the meeting that keeps it like a close knit group which facilitates sharing of ideas and experiences.

Pre-Show Symposium: Omnichannel Merchandising
The need for retailers to have a 360-degree view of their operation is often talked about as an ideal but the reality is often much different. With planning and merchandising, the fact remains that many retailers still maintain separate systems for their stores and direct-to-consumer channels. During this symposium, attendees will learn the value and importance of an omnichannel merchandising strategy and discuss how retailers have more tools than ever at their disposal to effectively migrate to this approach.
