Retail’s BIG Show
Every year, the National Retail Federation (NRF) organises its Convention & EXPO, nicknamed “Retail's BIG Show”. The event that has been running for more than a century consists of a four-day convention that offers education, collegial networking, and an EXPO Hall full of technologies and solutions. Every year, people from every layer of the Retail industry visit the Big Show, ranging from C-Level and Senior Execs to the regional managers and the single store operators.
The event will be held from 11-14 January 2015 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York City, known as 'The Glass House', and located at 11th Avenue in the west of Manhatten.
For consulting firms, the conference provides the ideal moment to showcase their thought leadership, to learn from best practices from other experts in the field, and to come into contact with leaders in the retail industry. This year, three consulting firms signed up as sponsors of Retail's BIG Show:
Deloitte (Platinum) sponsors the ‘New Digital Divide’ keynote session.
Kurt Salmon (Silver) is the sponsor of the “Optimizing Omnichannel: Lessons and Insights from Industry Leaders” breakout session.
Tata Consultancy Services (Gold) sponsors the ‘Leveraging Big Data for Deeper Customer’ insights’ and the ‘Smarter Retailing Breakout’ session. The firm also co-sponsors the CIO Party and is present at the EXPO floor.
