About RICE

The connecting point for connected commerce leaders

The Retail Innovation Conference & Expo (RICE) is the industry’s go-to event for connected commerce: What’s top-of-mind for executives right now and what trends and technologies are driving the industry’s next wave of disruption.

Our vision

We know there is no shortage of events out there…digital or in-person. Our goal is to not only create a collaborative space for executives across the retail industry to come together and learn from each other, but also create a space for active learning and discovery.

After you dig into hot commerce trends and success stories in one of our micro-conferences, you can then experience the innovative technology and experiences you learn about on the expo floor. That’s right: you won’t just see what’s next in connected commerce…but experience it.

The content

The Retail Innovation Conference & Expo is the overall home for the event, but our content sessions and panels are organized into three micro-conferences that are thoughtfully designed based on the unique needs of different job roles and teams.

Take a page from some emerging and disruptive brands to learn how they’re rewriting the rules of digital experience across DTC ecommerce sites to marketplaces.
Hear how brands are embracing new design trends and cutting-edge technologies to drive connected commerce experiences.
Learn how top brands embed agility, collaboration and innovation into the fabric of their businesses to adapt to new omnichannel realities.

Note: we highly recommend bringing your team to divide and conquer and make the most of the full event experience. Group rates are available!

The schedule

You should plan to arrive by Monday night to attend Tuesday workshops and the welcome reception. After our last full day of programming and networking on Thursday, it’s not goodbye, but see you later as we begin planning for the 2024 event. View the full schedule here »
