The Retail Innovation Conference was a great event to meet fellow leaders and gain insight to their different approaches to business as well as share BEDGEAR’s best practices in experiential retail. I’d highly recommend it as an additive and worthwhile opportunity for those looking to expand their mindsets and drive change in retail and the world.
