design:retail Conference & Expo

A Reimagined Event for the Reimagined Store

The store is playing a new, unique role in the customer experience. That’s why we’re taking the strong heritage of the GlobalShop event and reimagining it for the modern retail era.

The design:retail Conference & Expo is the ultimate destination for design and architecture firms, creative leads and brand executives to come together and re-envision the brick-and-mortar store.
