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.
