Visions Summit 2023 - Retail Innovation Conference & Expo
Visions Summit

New Ways of Seeing

Future Commerce is a new kind of media company that serves merchants, retailers, and ecommerce operators. Our annual Visions Report is the home of our boldest ideas and most thought-provoking predictions of the year.

This year we bring Visions to life in a bold, new way, by bringing remarkable people together to contribute to and cultivate this important piece of content at our Visions Summit.

Intellectuals, creators and patrons have engaged in discourse around the intersection of culture and commerce for centuries. The Visions Summit is an event for future-minded entrepreneurs, business leaders and intellectuals to draw inspiration from, and add to, this rich lineage.

In June, we will convene at the Retail Innovation Conference and Expo to share our Report, examine the ways in which commerce is changing, and speak with people who will reframe the conversation about culture and commerce in ways that help us to future-proof our businesses.
