Update on 2020 and 2021 Events
Due to COVID-19 related restrictions on large gatherings and travel that are expected to continue through the fall, we will be holding our next in-person Shoptalk at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on March 21-24, 2021. Our sister event, Groceryshop, will continue to be held at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on September 19-22, 2021.
We are replacing our previously scheduled in-person Shoptalk 2020 event with a groundbreaking new virtual event called Shoptalk Meetup—retail’s first digitally native event. Shoptalk Meetup will take place during three half-days on Tuesday-Thursday, October 20-22, 2020 at 12:15 pm-4:30 pm ET (9:15 am-1:30 pm PT). Click here for more details about Shoptalk Meetup.
We have started our outreach to all Shoptalk 2020 sponsors, attendees and speakers with next steps. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
