Welcome to Retail's Best Show

Our 8,000+ attendees tell us that Shoptalk is the industry’s best retail and ecommerce event, describing their experience as amazing, educational, energizing, exciting, insightful, inspiring, productive and fun.

Over the past three years, Shoptalk has created the industry’s leading community of digital innovators, grounded in a fresh and intellectually honest conversation about both the status quo and changes ahead.

Shoptalk covers the ongoing transformation of retail and the evolution of how consumers discover, shop and buy in a digital age—from new technologies and business models to the latest trends in consumer behaviors, preferences and expectations.

Established retailers and brands, startups, tech companies, investors, real estate operators, media, Wall Street analysts and others attend Shoptalk to learn, collaborate and evolve over four days of valuable content, curated meetings, wide-ranging exhibitors and productive networking.
