RetailSpaces is an invite-only retreat for store development and design leaders.

The program features thought-provoking talks from industry experts as well as a series of peer-led discussions on topics that are top of mind for today’s retailers.

Now more than ever, it’s essential to come together with peers to navigate the disruption transforming the industry. RetailSpaces provides access to some of the sharpest minds in retail as well as the ability to review and source strategic partners.

Through our custom app, attendees can schedule one-on-one time with the industry’s leading service providers.

For 2018 we are once again taking over a whole resort, so attendees can look forward to a true retreat experience! And of course, we wouldn’t make you go all the way to Scottsdale and not enjoy the beautiful surroundings! Desert jeep tours, golf and a Carnival are just a few of the exciting things we have planned.

Who Attends?

Participation in RetailSpaces is by invitation-only. Invited participants are responsible for leading store development, design, construction and operations for the world’s leading retail brands.

“It was an incredible networking opportunity and overall great experience; a different and refreshing way to approach a trade show.”

– Director of Global Store Development & Procurement, Ralph Lauren
