The Experience


Much More Than Presentations


The unproductive days of aimlessly strolling an expo floor are over! In advance of the event, participants of RetailSpaces are able to login to our private network and schedule face time with the service providers and supplier companies that interest them most.


In addition to thought-provoking talks, RetailSpaces also includes numerous opportunities for casual discussions amongst peers. With a delegation made up of the nation’s leading retail chains, we realize the potential for these organic conversations.


Wouldn’t it be fun to travel to Los Angeles and sit in a conference center all day? Yeah, didn’t think so! Numerous excursions and our RetailSpaces Rocks! party with surprise musical acts are just a few of the memorable experiences we have planned.

Networking Activities


DTLA Food Tour

Join industry friends for a guided Downtown LA food tour which includes six unique stops showcasing the best of the growing, diverse DTLA food scene. Expert foodies have done extensive and delicious research to offer you the ultimate best-of food tour of DTLA.

Hollywood Sign Hike & Picnic

Enjoy a guided group hike to the Hollywood Sign and Griffith Park Observatory, then cap it off with a gourmet picnic lunch in the park. Take in breathtaking 360° views from high atop the hills of this sprawling urban paradise with an unforgettable panorama of the majestic downtown skyscrapers, the glitter of Hollywood and more before finishing off with an insider’s tour of the world-famous Griffith Observatory.


RS Rocks!

Join us as we light up the night at our RetailSpaces Rocks! party at an exclusive LA location. Mingle over craft cocktails, California cuisine, and carnival games. Just when you think the night is winding down, a multi-platinum musical guest will take the stage for an exclusive, intimate performance. But the party doesn’t end there-  we continue indoors with a silent disco!

“RetailSpaces is where you go to get ideas to be ahead of the game. Compared to other events, it’s a lot more fun and easy to talk to people here.”
