Introducing NRF Retail Converge

NRF’s new virtual event offers the depth of a workshop within the breadth of a conference
Eric Olson
VP, Education Strategy

NRF’s newest virtual event, NRF Retail Converge, is coming your way this June, and it’s unlike any event NRF has hosted before. Designed with cross-functional teams in mind, the event will focus on disciplines across all major facets of retail, from marketing, digital and data analytics to supply chain, cybersecurity technology and more.

This holistic educational approach means attendees can go broad across the industry as well as deep into their field, whether that’s diving into topics that directly impact the day-to-day, understanding insights about working with other departments in an organization, or gaining broader leadership strategies.

The event features speakers from some of the industry’s most dominant organizations like Walmart, CVS Health, Qurate + Zulilly, Crate & Barrel, and Amazon; innovators such as Spotify, Stitch Fix, thredUP and Wayfair; and agile startups including Guesst, ByReveal, Nimbly and Recurate, which represent retail’s “next normal” across multiple retail disciplines.

Main stage inspiration

The main stage is where top CEOs, presidents and thought leaders in the retail ecosystem will share their insights in 15 main stage sessions. Each day begins and ends with discussions including socio-economic impacts on global retailing; collaborative partnerships as growth opportunities; business transformation challenges and success stories; retail’s role in health, wellness and a safer population; the power of diverse, equitable and inclusive workforces; and leadership principles for the next era of capitalism. 

Feature focus

Diving more deeply, Feature Stage sessions will incorporate a “track” approach. Attendees can both select topics relevant to their unique roles and those where other functional areas might intersect with their area of responsibility.

We’ve taken the expertise and content planning regimen from NRF’s summer events and applied that thinking to tracks covering loss prevention and asset protection, cybersecurity, supply chain and sustainability, and technology leadership. Sessions in these tracks will complement marketing and data analytics, store operations, customer experience, ecommerce and digital, along with corporate-level strategy.

Connecting the dots

We’re also scheduling retailer-only product demos in the NRF Retail Converge Marketplace, roundtable discussion groups for peer-level conversations, sponsor-produced lunch-and-learn educational sessions, and Exhibitor Big Ideas sessions. There is something meaningful and substantive for everyone, and we encourage you to join us either individually or as a team.

We look forward to seeing you virtually at NRF Retail Converge, June 21-25.
