The Shoptalk Heretics Program

For 2017, we're excited to introduce the Shoptalk Heretics Program. This program is designed to recognize individuals from large established retailers and brands who champion disruptive innovation, ranging from groundbreaking partnerships and technologies to new consumer propositions. These individuals boldly go against the status quo to get through processes typically designed to ensure operational efficiency rather than innovation.

The dictionary definition of a heretic is “a person holding an opinion at odds with what is generally accepted”. Heretics are nonconformists, rebels and agents of change. They see the world differently and work to make their vision a reality.

As part of 2017’s Shoptalk, we’re recognizing these individuals at the forefront of change. Those selected will receive recognition pre-event and onsite at Shoptalk as well as other benefits, such as comped tickets and travel allowances to attend Shoptalk.

To nominate yourself or someone else for the Shoptalk Heretics Program, complete the form below. The deadline for submissions is January 31.

If you're a technology company, nominate those special individuals at your clients! The Shoptalk Heretics Program is an industry-wide way to recognize their achievements.
