DTC & Tech Startups

More than 1,000 direct-to-consumer and tech startups redefining retail attend Shoptalk each year from major global hubs. Shoptalk provides startups with an unparalleled opportunity to form important fundraising, product, distribution and other partnerships with retailers, brands, tech companies, investors, real estate operators, media, analysts and more.

Startups less than two years old that have raised under $2 million at the time of Shoptalk can apply here for a limited number of startup rate tickets and here for discounted exhibiting and sponsorship opportunities.

Our agenda includes a non pay-to-play Technology Spotlight track featuring the Founders and CEOs of innovative VC-backed tech startups, and we showcase very early stage, pre-Series A tech solutions in our “Startup Pitch” -- introducing them to our audience via a dynamic, competitive format.
