Shoptalk’s Annual Retail Education Certificate

Shoptalk Annual Retail Education Certificate

Starting in 2019, we will formally launch an annual certificate program for individuals who attend a minimum number of sessions and take part in other Shoptalk learning opportunities like Techtalks, Tabletalks and the Hosted Retailers & Brands Program.

Our Annual Retail Education Certificate is awarded each year to every individual who completes at least 10 credits of approved continuing education at Shoptalk. Credits are earned onsite during the event by attending our sessions–credits can also be earned through Tabletalks (interactive peer group discussions among retailers and brands), Techtalks (overviews of technology innovation presented by tech company executives) and through our Hosted Retailers & Brands Program (meetings with tech company executives). Credits will be awarded for these different types of onsite learning as follows:

Continuing EducationCredits
Track Sessions: Core Curriculum and others1.0 credit per session
Main Stage Sessions0.5 credit per session
Tabletalks *1.0 credit per Tabletalk
Techtalks0.5 credit per hour (10 Techtalks)
Hosted Retailers & Brands Program *0.5 credits per hour (4 meetings)

* Retailers and brands only

The Annual Retail Education Certificate helps recipients distinguish themselves at a time when there is a significant divide in retail industry professionals’ knowledge of digital innovation. Any attendee can qualify for an Annual Retail Education Certificate and we’re working directly with employers to help teams across their organizations participate in the annual certificate program.
