NRF 2022: Elevating retail and serving a dynamic industry

Get a closer look at NRF’s work on behalf of the retail industry

In 2022, the National Retail Federation is helping retail go further.

We started the year off strong with NRF 2022: Retail’s Big Show, where thousands of retailers came together safely in person for the first time since January 2020 to learn from, connect with and inspire one another. A few months later, we celebrated a successful NRF Foundation Honors, where more than $3 million was raised for scholarships and programs that propel people into meaningful retail careers.

In our nation’s capital, NRF’s advocacy efforts in 2022 have generated bipartisan support for key legislation that helps retailers thrive, including preservation of the corporate tax rate and passage of the Ocean Shipping Reform Act and the Postal Service Reform Act.

As businesses and consumers face rising costs, NRF is calling on Congress and the administration to lower inflation now through tariff relief and immigration reform.
