Shoptalk Is The World’s Largest Conference For Retail & Ecommerce Innovation

Shoptalk covers the rapid evolution of how consumers discover, shop and buy—from new technologies and business models to the latest trends in consumer behaviors, preferences and expectations.

Established retailers and brands, startups, tech companies, investors, media, analysts and others come together at Shoptalk to learn, collaborate and evolve. Everyone benefits from rich interactions over four days packed with incredible content, wide-ranging exhibitors and productive networking.

Shoptalk 2018 will have more than 7,500 attendees, up almost 40% from 5,500 in 2017. As Shoptalk gets bigger, it only gets better by (1) maintaining audience seniority, (2) increasing facilitated and curated interactions, and (3) freshening content and speakers.

For 2018, we’re bringing our U.S. and European events together into one expansive event in Las Vegas to create the industry’s first global dialogue and community.
