The “big show” of the year for many many years used to be KioskCom and the KI homepage has a picture the manager Lawrence.

Gold Sponsors :

Join hundreds of retailers, in-store experience and technology experts, brands and agencies at this full-day event focused entirely on what’s widely considered the most important channel in the white-hot retail media (RMN) ecosystem – the physical store.

In the first event of its kind, NRF and STRATACACHE are partnering to dedicate a full day right before Retail’s Big Show to take a deep dive into how in-store media networks will deliver significant streams of new revenue from the physical store.

STRATACACHE CEO Chris Riegel told me the goal was to have a solid day of serious and interesting retail, brand and adtech people talking about what’s going on, what’s possible and the challenges in making things happen. To his credit, while STRATACACHE is the co-sponsor with NRF, he said the agenda very deliberately doesn’t have much, if any, stuff from his company or other vendors.

That’s smart, and helpful. We’ve all sat down at conferences and sat wondering why whoever had the microphone was being allowed to pitch a product or service, in the guise of education and knowledge-sharing.

This is the agenda:

12:10pm–1:10pm

NRF 2022 Recap Video

Events

There are all the sessions, vendor parties, store visits, shows and all kinds of things to do in New York as part of the NRF Show when we all gather in NY again. Having now attended the Big Show for over 30 years, here are my thoughts on the best outside events to network and have fun. Come early, enjoy the networking in a less hectic manner and enjoy the event. Look forward to seeing you at the show or these events.

These are ordered by the day.

Friday January 13th

VIP Awards – 6-10pm – Gotham Hall

There are many events that recognize retailers, this one allows retailers to celebrate the retail vendor community. This gala style event does just that and is a great way to catch up with friends you have not seen for a while and celebrate together.

 

Saturday January 14th

RetailROI SuperSaturday – 8am-2pm – Microsoft 11 Times Sq

A unique event of business content and networking, all for a greater cause, to help orphans and vulnerable children. Retailers attend free and generate enough sponsorships to provide clean water for 300 people just by being there. 100% of the vendor sponsor proceeds go to help orphans and vulnerable children. This “Tech and Tears” event brings the industry together and has helped over 265,000 children in over 27 countries.

 

Speakeasy @NRF – 6pm – ZUMA New York

For retailers only, this exclusive event in the internationally acclaimed restaurant will include a power panel of retail executives including Kroger VP of Transformation, Wes Rhodes.

 

Sunday January 15th

Retail Insiders Party – 9-11:30pm – Location TBD

The Retail Insiders Party is retail’s class reunion! It may be difficult to locate friends at the show itself, but it’s easy to find them here! This cocktail event brings together senior technology and transformation. Simply wonderful get together, always a blast.

 

Monday January 16th

RETHINK Retail Bash – 8-11pm Location TBD

This is the hottest new party of the show this year. Having been honored as a RETHINK Top Influencer in the past, I am really looking forward to celebrating together as RETHINK Retail announces the next wave of influencers at this great event.

Rock & Roll Retail Underground – 8:30-12am – The Cutting Room

Come enjoy your retail colleagues as they jam at this amazing event. Amazing talent and you will come away saying that maybe some of these people should quit their day jobs. An absolute blast and great way to end a long day of networking.

 

So, there you have it…there are a lot of great vendor parties as well, but after 30 years of shows, these are my 6 favorite events to come together to celebrate, help kids in need, or just have fun around NRF.

NRF Return on Investment ROI

Usually, shows are measured in business impact and specifically leads.  Our booth at 1606 was at the entrance of the lower level which is the best position on the lower level. There are multiple ROI equations depending on the company and the person. Our point of view is geared towards a kiosk manufacturer or component provider. As far as leads go:

  • If we normally received 200 leads in 2020, then in 2022 we received 25
  • Booth visitors are made up of A) those who seek you out, B) those who stumble onto you interested and C) those who stumble onto you just going through motions.
  • Our leads were A and B class
  • Retail customer interest likely represented 10,000 store locations. That’s good.
  • Attendee traffic for the entire show was rumored to be a seventh of usual traffic  (40,000 is total from 2020)
  • The optimistic operative phrase for NRF 2022 is the quintessential “It only takes one”
