The Independent Retailer Conference is the nation’s only retail conference dedicated entirely to the unique lifestyle and responsibilities of indie store owners. Founded by industry veterans Nicole Leinbach Reyhle & Kerry Bannigan, the Independent Retailer Conference occurs within ASD Market Week, offering independent retailers the chance to engage, learn, connect and get inspired from retail experts, industry leaders, service providers and like-minded retailers from across the nation.
The Independent Retailer Conference is a “pop up conference” and is free for registered ASD attendees. The conference is comprised of 15 – 60 minute talks on the main stage that cover all aspects of retail management and marketing. There are also deep-dive sessions held in individual conference rooms that tackle complex topics like starting a private label brand or entering the Amazon marketplace. As a whole, the show focuses on delivering in-store and ecommerce operational insight and expertise that can help independent merchants further succeed in their retail goals.
The conference is emceed by Rich Kizer and Georganne Bender of the Kizer & Bender speaking and consulting group. Many of the speakers at the Independent Retailer Conference are authors, consultants, marketing experts, and retail industry veterans who provide valuable, accessible, and expert insight on areas including store operations, marketing, publicity, merchandising, and more.
