NRF's Annual Convention & EXPO earned the nickname "Retail's BIG Show" years ago and because the name was so appropriate, it stuck. Today, Retail's BIG Show is NRF's flagship industry event held annually in New York City. The four day event offers unparalleled education, collegial networking, and an enormous EXPO Hall full of technologies and solutions.
After more than a century, Retail's BIG Show is still the place - the only place - where you can see and experience all things Retail. It is truly one-stop-shopping for industry professionals from the around the world.
Retail's BIG Show connects retail solution providers with retail executives searching for the most effective solutions, tools and technologies. Network with your existing customers and connect with new ones. If you want your bottom line to be bigger in 2015 than 2014; your attendance is not an option – it's mandatory.
We call it Retail's BIG Show for a reason – because it is the one show, once a year where the entire retail industry comes together. Our numbers (30,000 industry professionals) speak for themselves.
Exhibit and Sponsor
As a BIG Show Exhibitor, you not only get the added exposure on the EXPO during the Show, but multiple branding opportunities pre, during and post-show. Review the many exhibitor benefits, available booth space and which of your competitors have already secured space. The EXPO has sold out the last two years, so remember, first come, first-served! There are plenty of sponsorship opportunities that can amplify your brand's exposure.
We've carved 2 pavilions on the EXPO hall floor for the Association for Retail Technology Standards' (ARTS) Pavilion and the Mobile & Digital Pavilion. Both Pavilions allow attendees to learn more about using technology standards and innovative solutions.
