The NRF, the world’s largest retail organization, announced a new online format for its 110th edition in 2021.
The National Retail Federation (NRF), the annual destination for retailers all over the world in New York, recently announced that the fair will take place at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York from June 6-8, 2021. Although the organization has moved the face-to-face event from January, when it typically occurs, to June, it also announced that they will also be holding an event in a virtual format on January 12-14, 19, and 21-22 2021 which they call Chapter 1. Both events follow the theme: “Forward Together“.
“The health and safety of our team, industry partners and global attendees is our number one priority. Given the understandable concerns among all of our stakeholders regarding the availability and effectiveness of treatments or a vaccine for the coronavirus, we have concluded it is not feasible to maintain our original schedule of an in-person January 2021 trade show and have decided to reimagine the NRF 2021 annual meeting and convention``, explained NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay.
The virtual event of January 2021, in which SISQUAL will be present, will be held entirely online and will have robust content, combined with a digital exhibition. The event focuses on 4 major advantages for its participants:
- COME TOGETHER – NRF’s networking programs make it easy to meet with colleagues and build new partnerships.
- THINK FORWARD – See industry visionaries take the stage and tackle retail’s biggest topics and forecast what’s next.
- EXPERIENCE NEW TECH – Find the future of retail in the NRF 2021 – Chapter 2 Expo, featuring the industry’s top solution providers.
- MOVE WITH PURPOSE – Bring home tangible takeaways to transform your business and help you move forward with confidence.
