Why Do YOU Need To Be At RetailNOW?


Over the past month I have provided updates on our preparations and the status of attendee registrations. This week I wanted to give you an update on the show content. By the way – attendee registrations remain ahead of last year and we should have the same number of exhibitors as last year.

Critical Meetings
RetailNOW starts with RSPA’s Board of Director’s meeting on Saturday July 11th. In addition to the Board Meeting there will be a Vendor Working Group and a Canadian Committee meeting. There are a total of 28 Vendor/Dealer meetings being held in conjunction with RetailNOW. Some meetings such as Future POS and Dinerware are two day events, others for two hours. No matter how long the meeting, it’s a great opportunity for vendors and dealers to meet face to face.

Compelling Education
We begin and end our education sessions with keynote addresses. In the course of 3 days, you can choose from 23 different education sessions each designed to provide industry specific information to help your business. One of the more interesting panel discussions designed to help your business expand is sure to be Monday’s session which looks at different ways to take retail technology beyond retail.

Relevant Technology
With well over 100 exhibitors and RSPA’s RetailNEXT pavilion you have a chance to see current, new, and future technology up close and personal. I always look forward to meeting and speaking with the companies that bring you the technology that fuels your business. It seems like I always take away new ideas from the show floor.

Great Venue
Mandalay Bay is a world class convention destination making it the perfect venue for conducting business. To reduce your expenses RSPA has negotiated a great price for the rooms ($119 per night with free internet). You’ll also get a $500 “fly back” coupon from Mandalay Bay. Many of your meals are included as part of RetailNOW – Lunch is served on the expo show floor and we have a Welcome Reception and After Party where you can network and gather up great ideas.

Think there’s a lot going on? Well, you’re right! There is a lot going on at RetailNOW and it is definitely worth your time and cost. Here’s how I look at it. You can get immediate ROI for RetailNOW by picking up just one good business idea or learn about a new product that will land that extra deal for you.

Your next mouse click should be to check out our web site for the latest show information and register NOW to be at RetailNOW – Where the Industry Meets.

See you in Las Vegas!
