Exciting New Retail Tech Event Coming to Dallas in September!

By: Melissa Campanelli

Hello Inner Circle readers!

I wanted to use this space today to let you all know about a new event our sister brand, Total Retail, is hosting that I’m super excited about! It’s called Total Retail Tech, and is taking place from Sept. 18-20 at the Highland Hotel in Dallas! Why am I so excited about it? Well, for starters, the invitation-only event (which is limited to 50 pre-qualified enterprise retail executives focused on the intersection of retail technology and marketing) gives attendees the opportunity to take a deep dive into emerging technology in a small group setting. No distractions. No wasted time. Just the important information retailers need when they’re making huge decisions like buying technology systems and other types of software. In addition to first-rate content, Total Retail Tech will feature networking opportunities with other retailers (and fun entertainment galore!).

And get this — for qualifying retailers, Total Retail covers all expenses, including travel, hotel accommodations, meals and entertainment. (FYI: qualifying retailers include executives responsible for making budgeting decisions on the technologies used at their companies. They hold titles such as chief digital officer, chief technology officer, chief information officer, chief marketing officer, chief strategy officer, vice president of digital, vice president of e-commerce, etc.)

Total Retail Tech will focus on three key marketing technology themes: Digital & New Technologies; Marketing & Merchandising; and Omnichannel & In-Store. These topics will be discussed in boardroom case studies, pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings with solutions providers; and tons of peer-to-peer retailer meetings.

If you apply and are qualified, you’ll be networking with the following attendees, who are already signed on:

  • Director, Experiential Marketing, Sur La Table
  • Senior Executive Vice President/Chief Financial Officer, Boscov’s
  • Senior Director, Digital, PetSmart
  • Co-Founder, The Grommet
  • Senior Director, Customer Experience, Chico’s FAS
  • Vice President, E-Commerce, Title Nine
  • Director of Content and Creative, CDW
  • Vice President, Global Engineering Operations, Groupon
  • Director of Product and Growth, 1-800-Flowers.com
  • Vice President, CRM, Digital and Analytics, DSW

Retailers, we’d love for you to attend. You can register here. We’ll review your application as soon as we get it! Space is limited, so please apply as soon as possible.

Oh, and if you have any questions about Total Retail Tech, please feel free to send me a note at mcampanelli@napco.com. I’d love to hear from you and/or answer any questions!
