Retail Trade Shows

Retail is changing at a rapid pace and successful retailers are changing the quickest. Innovation requires learning (see “7 Practices of Highly Innovative Retailers”). Retail trade shows are a great place to learn. Let us know if you need help figuring out which are the most worthwhile for you. We’re happy to help!

(Sophelle is closely monitoring the news about Coronavirus, known as COVID-19, and how it might impact upcoming retail events nationwide. Please come back regularly for updated information on potential changes and cancellations. Also, you can subscribe to our monthly newsletter for the latest updates).
