Happy New Year Everyone!
Here at blueKiwi we are very excited to be attending the National Retail Foundation’s 2011 Expo, their 100th anniversary of the conference. We are looking forward to meeting some of the most exciting speakers presenting solid case studies.
It’s the One Hundred Big Years Show–established in 1911!
Presenters we are looking forward to hearing from include Terry Lundgren, President and CEO, Macy’s, Inc., Ben Fischman, CEO, Rue La La, Gordon Segal, Co-Founder and retired CEO, Crate and Barrel and many more.
As a technology provider we are interested in technology events, but we are equally interested to learn exactly what is happening in specific industries such as retail.
In the age of the social customer, the face of retail will also transform. blueKiwi is interested to find out more of the challenges retail faces in the digital age, and how technology and training might make that transition easier.
