RetailX is embracing a newly integrated approach to showcasing design, technology, and experience in one space. Taking place June 9-11, 2020 at the McCormick Place in Chicago, RetailX’s new format will bring together 15,000 retailers and industry innovators with 1,200+ exhibiting brands to share ideas, facilitate discovery, and forge new connections.
“This is the most exciting time in retail history,” says Alison Medina, director of content for RetailX. “E-commerce is thriving, online marketplaces are exploding in growth, and brick-and-mortar retail is undergoing a complete renaissance geared toward customer experience.”
RetailX is the meeting place for online and offline retailers to transform the retail experience and boost retail growth. The RetailX intersection consists of:
- GlobalShop at RetailX: Find the retail store design and merchandising solutions to create extraordinary store experiences and environments in the evolving retail world.
- IRCE at RetailX: The meeting place where retailers of all sizes can discover solutions to create and evolve your e-commerce strategy.
- SmartRetail at RetailX: Discover how store-based technologies, inventory location, and tracking solutions can transform retail businesses of every size.
“This is why RetailX is such an important resource for our industry as it’s all about breaking down the silos that are keeping retailers and brands from moving forward,” says Medina. “RetailX is where physical and digital retail comes together harmoniously.”
