…AND MUCH MORE

Much More Than Presentations

ONE-ON-ONE STRATEGY MEETINGS

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.

ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONS

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.

MEMORABLE NETWORKING

Wouldn’t it be fun to travel all the way to Scottsdale and sit in a conference center all day? Yeah, didn’t think so! Go Kart Racing, an Old Town Pub Crawl and a Neon Nights Party with surprise musical acts are just a few of the memorable events we have planned. 

Networking Activities

Kart Racing

Rev Your Engines, Shift into Gear..we’re headed to Octane Raceway this year! Get ready for some friendly rivalry as you race over 4 miles of indoor/ outdoor track to beat your retail friends to the finish line. Complete a full pit stop with your pit crew on a real NASCAR!  Jump over the Pit Wall – Jack up the car – Change the tires – First to finish or fastest time wins! Round it out with some refreshments and lunch for the perfect balance of excitement and networking.

Old Town Pub Crawl

Hop on board, pump up the tunes and let the good times roll.. we’re going on a pub crawl in Downtown Scottsdale! Unlike other bar hopping experiences, this one requires a little bit of ‘footwork’.. Grab a seat on one of our 15 person party bikes as we pedal our way through Old Town. Here, we’ll check out the entertainment district and pop in 2 of the area’s best loved bars. Enjoy refreshing drinks, local fare and good conversation - this afternoon promises to be fun-filled for all.

Neon Nights Party

Get Ready to Glow - we're lighting up the Valley Ho and dropping the beats for our Monday night dinner party! Meet us under the desert sky to celebrate the end of a productive day. Mingle with new friends over craft cocktails, gourmet food stations and good tunes. Keep your ears open..we've got a special performance coming your way - stay tuned for details!
