“I am most looking forward to, not only the annual EuroCIS tech trade fair, but also the vast range of other retail supplies showcased at EuroShop every three years – from lighting and merchandising developments, to the latest tech and sustainability solutions. I’m particularly looking forward to the reta awards, having served as one of its judges for over 15 years now. The ceremony is always a highlight of the event for me. As to store tours, I would thoroughly recommend checking out the curated list from the event’s organizers themselves, here.”

NRF  It’s all about the people and friends…. After 32 years that is the big thing.  So many friends and colleagues.  And then RetailROI SuperSaturday.

Last year was phenomenal.  I was skeptical you could pull off a great party with all the competition on Monday night, but you did.  Now there is great momentum.  And with the AI lead-in, you have a great retail audience to lead into it.  Well done.
