Inside the #RICE23 Agenda: 5 Session Formats for All Learning Styles

The Retail Innovation Conference & Expo agenda was designed to cover a broad spectrum of topics and tech trends shaping the future of connected commerce. Our keynote sessions and seven tracks will give attendees the chance to hear first-hand from industry analysts, futurists and practitioners so they can further shape their strategies in 2023 and beyond.  
But not everyone gets inspired or invigorated by a traditional learning format, which is why the content team has diversified the agenda to offer different session styles and learning experiences. Which one of these resonates with you?

Cost: Add-on cost for All-Access Pass holders ($149 for 3) and EXPO Only Pass holders ($349 for 3) Note: Open to brand/retail executives only 
As the name implies, these sessions are focused on immersive and collaborative learning. With each session being 90 minutes, attendees will get the chance to dig deep into a specific topic, learn actionable frameworks and models, and walk away with deliverables to help them solve a specific business problem. The series of workshops fall into different topical categories: CX, Marketing & Advertising, and Culture & Innovation
