You Should Know About
Retail AI Council

and you should join today!


Will You Be Netflix Or Blockbuster?

Although we’re in the very early days, the forecast is clear. AI is coming and there will be massive disruption. AI will change the way consumers shop, the way retailers operate. AI will change every department in a retail organization. It will improve efficiencies, create capabilities, and expose new risks – all at a scale and pace that will challenge even the most advanced organizations. We all better figure out how to be a disruptor or we will be disrupted.

I hope we all say #imadisruptor!


Retail AI Council Is Here To Help You Be a Disruptor

Retail AI Council is a retailer-led organization, dedicated to helping retailers embrace the transformative potential of AI. The Council’s mission is to guide and empower retailers in navigating the disruptive landscape of AI technology, enabling them to stay ahead of the curve and unlock new opportunities for growth.


Retail AI Council Will Help In Many Ways

The Council mission is clear and working toward delivering value to its members. Here are some of the ways it will help.

  • Information – “Knowledge Is King” and Retail AI Council is building a Retail AI Resource Center. There you’ll find free and easy access to valuable information, including retail AI case studies, webinars , podcasts, tools, and more. (Launching April 1st)
  • Networking – It’s not just what you know. It’s who you know. Retail AI Council is holding in-person and online events to promote networking and collaboration.  (Events already underway)
  • Talent – Disrupting will require assembling the best team. There’s no better place to meet the best and brightest than an industry organization dedicated to the topic. Retail AI Council academic partners will also be presenting thought leadership on attracting, hiring, and retaining AI talent. (Webinar in April)
  • Access – Retail AI Council events and resources are free and open to members. Membership is free and open to all retailers, brands, solution providers, media, investors, academicians, students, and other interested parties. (Membership open now)
  • Discounts – Retail AI Council is working with our partners to offer discounts on the retail industry’s best conferences and events. (Launching in April)

Retail AI Council Works With All, Competes With None

The challenge for the retail industry is far greater than any one council or group can address fully. That’s why Retail AI Council partners with NRF AI Working Group, Coresight AI Council, and others.

Learning is critical to retailers’ success and conferences are among the best places to learn. Retail AI Council works with the leaders in retail conferences, such as NRF Big Show, SubSummit, and many more. Check out our networking events at

Contact us at to discuss how we can work together.


Call for Content

The Executive Leadership Committee  has given clear direction on what retailers are looking for. Retailers want to learn about real world success stories with specifics on who the retailer is and what KPI improvements were achieved. They’ve published a Call for Content, free for all Industry Partner members to submit, and free for all Retailer members to view. Click here to see an example.
