Retail industry experts and technology leaders will share how retail brands can use artificial intelligence, machine learning, mixed reality, blockchain and other technologies to overcome operational challenges, capitalise on new industry trends and enhance the customer experience at the NRF 2023: Retail’s Big Show in January 2023.

The conference, which will take place from 14-17 January at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Centre in New York City, will feature more than 175 sessions focused on topics such as … the future of brand voice, the growth of virtual fashion and livestream shopping, the on-demand evolution of convenience stores and why partnerships are the key to successful loyalty programmes. Other sessions will explore the role of microfulfillment centres in improving delivery, how blockchain can be used to protect data, what crypto, NFTs and the metaverse might mean for retail businesses, and much more.

In 2023, the event will also feature an expanded expo floor, a bigger Startup Zone and a new Consumer Products Showcase programme. The latter will provide a forum for small businesses and entrepreneurs to showcase their consumer-facing products to buyers and merchandisers from major retail brands who are looking to diversify their product lines.

Meanwhile, more than 50 technology startups will showcase their latest solutions at the Innovation Lab. There will also be 110 Exhibitor Big Ideas sessions on five different stages, where firms such as Microsoft, Adobe, BigCommerce, Blue Yonder, dunnhumby, Kyndryl and Publicis Sapient will demonstrate their latest products and share case studies.

Other highlights will include multiple networking events, an adaptive clothing fashion show on the Partner Perspective stage, and sessions with Roblox, Reddit and other international brands.
