GlobalShop, the world’s largest annual event for shopper-facing retail design, technology, and in-store marketing, is making even bigger waves in 2019. GlobalShop is co-locating with the Internet Retailer Conference & Exhibition (IRCE), the world’s largest ecommerce event, and RFID Journal LIVE! Retail, the world’s only RFID event dedicated specifically to retail application. The three shows are coming together under the name RetailX.
RetailX will take place June 25-27, 2019, at McCormick Place in Chicago. “RetailX gives us an opportunity to provide solutions for retailers in both brick and mortar and ecommerce destinations and allows exhibitors from all aspects of retail to showcase innovations that will drive the future of our industry. The new, exciting format will give our attendees a more vibrant show floor of over 400,000 sq. ft. and expansive learning opportunities,” says Doug Hope, GlobalShop Show Founder.
“As long-time partners of GlobalShop, we hope the integrated approach of RetailX will benefit our members and provide more insight into trends and tech than ever before,” says Steven Weiss, CEO of Shop!, the global trade association focused on enhancing retail environments and experiences.
RetailX is expected to attract and inspire more than 20,000 attendees, including independent retailers, and more than 1,200 exhibiting brands, based on recent trends from each show. Educational tracks will provide a broader scope for personal and business development with the intent to give attendees a significant competitive edge in the rapidly evolving retail world.
