ONE-ON-ONE STRATEGY MEETINGS

Ain’t nobody got time to stroll an expo floor! Participants at RetailSpaces have access to a private network where they can review the suppliers and service providers attending and schedule face-time with the ones that suit their needs.

UNFORGETTABLE NETWORKING

JEEP TOURS OF THE SAN ANDREAS FAULT

Experience the twisted and tortured landscape of an active earthquake fault system as your guide describes the geology of the area and you explore the skeleton of the earth. An experience you can only get in Palm Springs…and a perfect icebreaker to start RS17.

BACKYARD BBQ SOCIAL

We have the whole resort to ourselves, might as well make good use of all of their space! Join us on Sunday afternoon for a delicious Backyard BBQ Social before we officially kickoff RS17 later that evening.

BACKYARD OLYMPICS

We bought-out the resort so we might as well make good use of all of their space! Join us on Sunday afternoon for some friendly competitive games and a delicious BBQ. Not an athlete? No worries, every team needs a cheerleader – settle into our spectator section ready to rally on your favorite teams!  

A NIGHT AT THE CARNIVAL

Step Right Up! On Monday evening the Influence Hotel will be transformed into a magical carnival. Rides, Midway Games, Food Trucks, and some Surprise Musical Guests…are just a few of the exciting things you can look forward to! 

MUSICAL PERFORMANCES

We are thrilled to announce that Ed Kowalczyk, lead-singer of the multi-platinum rock band LIVE, will be taking a break from LIVE’S current world tour to join us at RetailSpaces to play an acoustic set under the desert sky!  And in addition to his previously announced keynote, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels will be also be performing a selection of Run-DMC hits. Because…”It’s like that, and that’s the way it is”!
