What’s a Hosted Summit?
Simply put, hosted summits are a unique way to engage buyers and sellers outside of the traditional trade show. Total Retail Tech places great emphasis on providing an environment conducive to relationship building and business development. Qualified attendees benefit from top-notch programming as well as peer-to-peer networking and the ability to see, test and compare some of the most innovative marketing technologies impacting the retail industry today. Many of these interactions take place in boardroom case study sessions and pre-scheduled one-to-one meetings. Networking functions including meals and entertainment provide plenty of additional opportunities to get to know your industry colleagues. The key benefit for both attendees and sponsors is that Total Retail Tech will bring in the right people for the right conversations.
What is Total Retail Tech?
Marketing and technology are increasingly becoming one in the same within the retail industry. Total Retail’s newest event, Total Retail Tech, addresses this dynamic by bringing together retail marketing and technology leaders for two days of education, networking and discussion on the latest technologies in the marketplace.

Wait. It’s Free? No, Seriously, What’s the catch?
No catch. There is no charge for qualified executives to participate. If you qualify to attend, you will receive complimentary event registration, travel arrangements, hotel accommodations, meals and social events. The event will be limited to a select number of attendees. Executives are encouraged to secure their place as soon as possible.
What is a Boardroom/Case Study?
Sponsors have the opportunity to deliver “Case Study” presentations to groups of 10-12 attendees in a private “Boardroom” setting. These presentations are not sales pitches or product demonstrations; they’re educational in nature, showcasing how a specific solution or tool solved a problem or created an opportunity. It’s an opportunity for sponsors to engage a small/focused audience in an interactive and problem-solving environment.
What is a 1:1 Meeting?
A pre-arranged, private, sit-down meeting to discuss your organization’s challenges, needs, etc. and to determine whether there are any potential business matches between buyer and seller.
Where does Total Retail Tech take place?
Total Retail Tech will take place at the Hutton Hotel in Nashville, TN.
