Hosted Retailers & Brands Program
Qualified Retailers & Brands Get Free Shoptalk Tickets & Up To $750 Travel/Hotel Reimbursement
Thousands of individuals from hundreds of retailers and brands around the world attend Shoptalk every year to improve their knowledge of retail’s latest technologies, trends and business models as well as to collaborate with peers, startups, tech companies, investors, real estate operators and others in an open, friendly environment.
If you’re with a retailer or brand, you may qualify for complimentary Shoptalk tickets plus up to $750 in hotel/travel reimbursement with our Hosted Retailers & Brands Program, which–starting in 2023–is held as part of our onsite Meetup. The reimbursement amount of $750 is the same whether you stay onsite at Mandalay Bay or offsite at any other hotel. The travel/hotel reimbursement is based on receipts submitted following the event. To date, we’ve reimbursed retailers and brands over $5 million in hotel/travel and provided free tickets worth an additional $15 million (that’s $20m in budget we’ve saved retailers and brands).
To qualify, you must be responsible for buying or evaluating retail or ecommerce technology, and take up to eight 15-minute onsite meetings. Enroll on time and you’ll get to pick the companies you want to meet from over 500 participating sponsors as part of our double opt-in process. You will not need to miss any agenda sessions for these meetings. Your eight (8) 15-minute meetings (total of up to only two hours) will be held during dedicated hours on Monday and Tuesday of Shoptalk. Your final schedule will be sent to you the week before the event.
