What Attendees Are Saying


"My biggest hesitation at these shows is being pitched constantly. This was the opposite. It was a conversation. One that honed in on my individual challenges, and how to fix them."

Jonathan Gamble
Director, Brand Partnerships


"It was a really great conference. I found the average attendee was much more senior and therefore more knowledgeable vs most other conferences, which in turn made for great networking and roundtables."

Aaron Zagha
Head of eCommerce, International Operations 


“Hearing from such high level retailers has helped define the direction I should be taking my business. It’s nice to know other companies at my level have experience the same challenges I go through.”

Mary Plemons
VP of Operations
