In 2016, Shoptalk launched their first annual event which drew in a group of more than 3,100 attendees, including over 1,000 C-level executives, almost 400 CEOs and in excess of 100 investors. Over 300 speakers presented at the 2016 conference, ranging from Uri Minkoff, CEO of Rebecca Minkoff, Steve Lowy, CEO of Westfield, to Tim Kendall, President of Pinterest (they even got their own caricatures).
The first annual conference gained media attention from CNBC, Forbes and Fortune, to name a few, with event coverage from the Associated Press, Business Insider, BuzzFeed News and many more. Shoptalk 2016 was recognized as a much-needed change agent in the conference world, with answers to some of your most brand’s most burning questions. Consumers today are connected on a global scale, and with unfettered access to technology and the internet, they have become the most powerful consumers we’ve seen yet. Because of this change in consumer, businesses must fundamentally transform their strategies and business models to fit their newly empowered customer. Shoptalk is the conference of the future, and the conference we need right now.
Shoptalk 2017 promises to keep their bar raised high this year – and most likely raise it even higher. The second annual conference has stepped up its game with over 5,000 attendees, 2,000 companies, 500 CEOs and 300 speakers expected to participate and cover the rapid evolution of how consumers discover, shop and buy—from new technologies and business models to changes in consumer preferences and expectations. With attendees like Manish Chandra, Founder & CEO of Poshmark, Brian Cornell, Chairman & CEO of Target and Adi Tatarko, CEP & Co-Founder of Houzz, we can’t help but have this year’s event on our minds. Not to mention all the awesome events on the agenda! This year’s Shoptalk is going to be a great one.
