The Shoptalk team is excited to announce that Shoptalk 2020 will feature an all-women speaker lineup. We believe this groundbreaking move is necessary to propel our industry forward and showcase the many incredibly talented women who are working to transform retail from all angles.

Beginning in 2021, Shoptalk will feature 50/50 male and female speakers every year. Read more HERE.
