#RIC was one of the best I attended all year. It is packed with powerhouse speakers from America’s largest retailers and still manages to provide an intimate environment. There was no hustle and bustle to distract you from getting the most from each session.

It was great to listen to some of the most well-regarded brands and executives speak about the ways they’re working to differentiate themselves for consumers, looking at all angles from product to design and even to culture.

#RIC was definitely a worthwhile event. It featured a diverse group of impressive industry professionals sharing actionable insights into how to succeed in a dynamic and rapidly-evolving industry.

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.

The Retail Innovation Conference is an intimate gathering of all the right people in retail. I was really impressed with the presentations and the lively conversations that followed. Anyone wanting to know what’s really happening in retail needs to get into RIC next year.
