Summit Recap: The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota, Florida
4 - 6 Apr 2018

“I found the vendor meetings both educational and helpful to understanding potential solutions for our projects.”

Jennifer Tangjerd, Kit & Ace

On 4-6 April 2018 at the wonderful Ritz-Carlton Sarasota in Florida, the US edition of our NG Retail Summit brought together senior retail decision-makers and business leaders from across North America to discuss current industry challenges – and how best to tackle them.

The summit focused on key topics such as: next generation don’t get left behind: the future of retail; blending physical & digital to enhance brick-and-mortar: omnichannel power; and faster than a speeding bullet: the unstoppable growth of eCommerce.

From case studies that lift the lid on operations inside best-in-class organisations, to workshops and collaborative sessions that focus on real challenges and future technology innovations, to one-to-one meetings with industry peers offering practical advice tailored to your specific needs, the summit provides you with everything you need to implement your key projects more effectively.
