Snaps from #RICE22

It seems like yesterday that we were at the 2022 Retail Innovation Conference & Expo, enjoying the warm Chicago weather and dishing on all things retail with our retail friends…more than 4,000 of them! That’s right, after the ups and downs of the pandemic, folks were eager to connect and collaborate in person! The inaugural event, hosted by Retail TouchPoints, gave attendees an exciting forum to dig into the latest technologies and strategies driving the next era of connected commerce. And boy, did they get it!  
With 3 dedicated micro-events, 80+ sessions, 16 total tracks and 200+ speakers overall, there was no shortage of insights and best practices to get from the brightest minds in the industry! There were a variety of cutting-edge topics discussed such as:
