Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and associated government restrictions and limitations on large gatherings and travel restrictions, both domestically and internationally, retailX has postponed its annual face-to-face event until August 2021. Originally slated to take place May 12-13, 2021, the new event dates are Tuesday, August 24 to Wednesday, August 25, 2021, at McCormick Place in Chicago. This date change is designed to provide participating brands and companies the time to effectively plan their participation during these challenging times.
“Our community is incredibly eager to come together again in person. After consulting with customers, partners and speakers, we made the decision to secure dates in August in order to maximize success for the event for our entire audience,” explains Katherine Childress, retailX show director. “We want to build on the success of our virtual event in October 2020 and feel that moving the face-to-face event to later in the year will allow both exhibitors and attendees of retailX more time to make plans to participate.”
