From Store Associates to the C-Suite
When market forces cause disruption, retailers search for innovative opportunities to gain competitive advantage. Successful executives today are arming themselves with new ideas, methods and leadership skills that support smarter strategic, business and IT decisions.
Three great reasons to attend!
Challenge assumptions, learn from thought leadership visionaries, and network with senior-level retail executive peers.
Encounter innovative ideas and technologies that enable you to overcome the hurdles that stand in the way of success.
Power-packed learning built around three important themes: leadership, innovative business strategies, and cutting-edge technology. Topics covered include digital transformation, employee engagement, mobile, artificial intelligence, competing with Amazon and more.
Sessions feature prominent retail leaders and recognized industry experts in a varied format that enables a truly interactive sharing of ideas. Other best-in-class features include the RIS CIO of the Years Awards, a panel of Wall Street analysts, boardroom straight-talk sessions, a Shark Tank-type competition for technology start-ups, and rapid-fire TED Talk-style sessions that spark new ideas for taking actions that deliver results. There's no better place for retailers to make useful contacts or find solutions that will maximize the effectiveness and success of their teams, departments and organizations.
RIS’ annual CIO of the Year Awards is always a highlight of the Retail Executive Summit, and this year will be no different. The revamped awards will feature new categories and the launch of RIS’ Hall of Fame.
