The 2014 Retail Innovator Awards program was a huge success. We were able to bring together retail executives in different roles from a variety of industry segments who shared insights and learned from each other in order to help improve their own businesses. We are providing that type of unique opportunity and much more in 2015 with the Retail Innovation Conference.”
