NRF events update

While we were optimistic about the prospects of a quick timeline for vaccine distribution, the reality is that it is taking longer than we had all hoped. Experts believe the process could extend through the summer.

Because of this projected timeline, we will not be able to safely host NRFtech, NRF 2021: Retail’s Big Show – Chapter Two or NRF PROTECT as in-person events in 2021. In the weeks ahead, we will unveil a new and exciting online offering that only NRF can provide for the industry, featuring more expansive content, networking, entertainment and expert insights for registrants.
