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.
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 San Diego and sit in a conference center all day? Yeah, didn’t think so! Numerous outdoor networking activities and a RetailSpaces Rocks! party with surprise musical acts are just a few of the memorable events we have planned.
“RetailSpaces is where you go to get ideas and get ahead of the game. Compared to other events, it’s a lot more fun and easy to talk to people here.”
