Needless to say, NRF (Retail’s Big Show) looks a lot different this year than it did last year. However, just like previous years, this January’s show (NRF 2021: Retail’s Big Show – Chapter 1) is sure to be the most informative show in the retail industry. In fact, with the current landscape of retail, this may be the show’s most important year yet. The unprecedented coronavirus pandemic has catapulted online ordering, social distancing, and more to the top of retailers’ priority lists, and the show is sure to deliver the best and latest solutions for retail businesses during the ongoing pandemic – and well beyond.
About the Show
Per the show’s website,
“This January, plugging in starts with logging in.
This has been an unprecedented year, with the retail industry showing tremendous resilience, agility and leadership in the face of a global pandemic. It's with that spirit that the National Retail Federation is proud to announce Retail's Big Show will continue as a virtual event in January 2021.
NRF 2021: Retail’s Big Show – Chapter One is meant to address the immediate needs facing retailers today. It's a jumping-off point that will lead the retail industry forward until we can meet in person at NRF 2021 – Chapter 2, taking place June 2021 in New York City.
NRF 2021 – Chapter 1 is an online version of Retail's Big Show that includes all new curated sessions, networking programs and a virtual Expo where you can easily connect with the industry’s brightest solution providers.”
