Why Attend?

Total Retail Tech is Different

Total Retail Tech is an invitation-only event that brings together retail executives with the technology providers that are transforming the industry. It's a free, all-inclusive experience for qualified attendees, who will be key decision makers overseeing marketing and technology strategy at leading retail companies. View our Attendee Prospectus here.

Let’s face it: keeping up with all the latest technologies powering the retail industry is a Herculean task. Spending weeks and months gathering technology intel, sorting through vendor pitches and watching endless demos can often be a complete waste of your valuable time.

Total Retail Tech’s goal is to change all that.

Simply put, Total Retail Tech brings the right people together for the right conversations. By matching like-minded retailers, Total Retail Tech enables honest and open discussions about technology and other business challenges. Furthermore, instead of learning about technologies you don’t need or can't implement, Total Retail Tech will match the right retailers with the right technology providers, saving time for all involved. Those interactions will serve as the start of profitable relationships between retailers and service providers.

With select attendance and an event designed around small groups, Total Retail Tech is a quality peer-to-peer experience that you won’t want to miss.

"Mobile, social and digital experiences are now such a natural part of consumers’ daily lives. They have shaped their behavior and expectations, and the bar has been set high. To win share of wallet in this competitive landscape, retailers must adopt technology the right way in order to create personalized, easy, effortless and magical experiences that will be meaningful to their customers."

Samantha Lee, Senior Vice President, Customer Experience, Tailored Brands

Attendee Orientation

“New technology is being offered each day for a retailer’s business from front to back.  I’ve learned in my many years of IT to always partner with each business group to understand their requirements, show them options of what is available, and provide guidance when needed.  Staying connected and committed to technology within a business is how fashion comes to life.”
