RetailNOW – The Best Yet! [President’s Note]

2011/11/04

After last year’s show, attendees told us that RetailNOW 2010 was the “best yet” and had truly become “Where the Industry Meets”. We then wondered how we were going to improve RetailNOW in 2011. As I write this notebook, we have just finished RetailNOW 2011 with record attendance, a sold-out show floor filled with world-class vendors and an impressive slate of industry specific education sessions. Attendees have told us that this year’s show was the “best yet” and the “most productive in years”. Here’s the secret sauce: we have great support and collaboration with our members, sponsors, exhibitors and committees. All of these areas work together to make a great show. Vendor members like Mercury Payment Systems alone brought fifty first-time resellers to the show. The RSPA Vendor Working Group brought another thirty-nine. BlueStar had their call center contact all of their resellers to make them aware of the show. Most everyone at the Future POS Reseller conference, held on Saturday and Sunday prior to RetailNOW, attended the show. I could fill several pages with the collaborative efforts from our members to help RetailNOW be the “best show to date”. We are gratified by the support, involvement and commitment from our industry community which make our association and events the best yet.

Next up: INSPIRE2012 – RSPA’s Annual Thought Leadership Summit will be held in Costa Rica this year. Registration is now open.
