Meet the 2024 Keynotes

Immerse yourself in fresh perspectives from influential leaders

Discover a dynamic lineup of thoughtfully selected themes and speakers representing top retailers and brands. The Shoptalk agenda offers invaluable insights into the ever-evolving landscape of the retail ecosystem, addressing pressing challenges head-on and showcasing innovative strategies employed by inspiring executives to overcome them.

Our agenda covers the latest technologies, trends and business models, as well as the rapid transformation of how consumers discover, shop and buy—across all retail verticals. Shoptalk’s agenda features zero pay-to-play content, leading the retail industry narrative and promising insights and perspectives not found anywhere else.

Shoptalk 2024 will also feature brand new Shoptalk Original Content, including independent research and data, along with the Shoptalk Retail Zeitgeist, a framework for understanding the most important forces, challenges and opportunities in retail today, developed in-house by the Shoptalk team.

Generative AI has the potential to add $4.4 trillion in value to the global economy annually. Despite its buzz, two key questions remain: What applications of AI will have the greatest transformational power, and how will these impact your organization? Our expert speakers will answer these and other questions about AI’s long term potential. They’ll also share tactical frameworks for the near-term adoption of AI within your organization, including how to navigate its risks and shortcomings.

In an era of heightened sensitivity and microscopic focus on missteps, brands must be crystal clear on what they stand for, the purpose of their brand and products, and who their customers are, with little margin for error. The Shoptalk agenda will help you gain insights into forging authentic relationships with customers, and how to build a brand that will lead in retail’s next decade.

The customer journey can be both complex and fraught with friction, which is why crafting seamless, easy paths from discovery to purchase is paramount. You’ll leave knowing what your organization needs to do in order to keep pace with changing behaviors and cultivate a loyal customer base, regardless of the varied journeys shoppers take on the way to completing a purchase.

As customers move effortlessly and continuously between stores and the digital world, retailers need to create a cohesive and seamless shopping experience. At Shoptalk, we call this unified retail. A step beyond omnichannel, unified retail refers to the harmonization of all retail channels to create a singular, frictionless and continuous experience. Our speakers and agenda will offer insights into how your organization can foster unified retail experiences through new capabilities and offerings.

Retail media networks, creator commerce and B2B partnerships are just some of the change agents influencing retail’s key industry relationships. We’ll give you the tools to understand these change drivers and how your organization can stay ahead in order to thrive in retail’s next decade.

Our agenda covers the latest technologies, trends and business models, as well as the rapid transformation of how consumers discover, shop and buy—across all retail verticals. Shoptalk’s agenda features zero pay-to-play content, leading the retail industry narrative and promising insights and perspectives not found anywhere else.

Shoptalk 2024 will also feature brand new Shoptalk Original Content, including independent research and data, along with the Shoptalk Retail Zeitgeist, a framework for understanding the most important forces, challenges and opportunities in retail today, developed in-house by the Shoptalk team.
