Ian Jindal, InternetRetailing’s editor-in-chief, and Michel Koch, head of France at greyhairworks!, have just returned from the National Retail Federation (NRF) Retail’s Big Show and are sitting down tomorrow to review the highlights.
The Post NRF 2024 Briefing will provide an on-the-ground summary of the event for both retailers and suppliers alike. Jindal and Koch were amongst the 40,000 delegates visiting the expo halls, conferences and interview rooms. Tomorrow [24 January] at 2pm GMT they will share what they discovered in a LinkedIn Live conversation.
The pair will discuss the state-of-the-art products and technology on show, covering what’s ‘wow’, incremental and ‘meh’. They will also look at the industry’s direction of travel and key topics of debate.
Furthermore, the briefing will cover Jindal’s store research, sharing his “wow” moments and championing the stores that transcend everyday excellence.
“New York is a global capital for retail, where high investment meets higher expectations and the highest level of service,” noted Jindal.
“Global brands may have several stores in the city, each tailored to the local clientele and competitors, while others are experimenting, announcing their arrival or setting new expectations.
“I visited over 170 stores in November to check out the on-the-ground experience, and from that there’s the top10 “wow” places that change store standards, 21 that are evergreen classics and another 50 worth checking out while in their vicinity. I will share the what/where/why, along with a map and write-up in the conversational LiveStream, conducted with my co-traveller, French eCommerce leader Michel Koch”.
Registration for the briefing remains open here.
