What Past Attendees Had to Say About Ideation…
- In the ever-changing world of retail, coming together to share, learn and commiserate is more critical than ever. Shop! is an excellent forum for doing so. You spend quality time with peers and, together, talk about the things that we somehow don’t find the time to truly dig into. Further, the event creates opportunities to solve them. It’s an excellent time investment!”
- “Shop! Ideation Nashville was a huge benefit to everyone! From Students to season professionals Shop! had something for everyone to take home and talk about! This was a GREAT event!”
- “The energy, talent and insights generated and shared at Shop! Ideation were excellent. A lot of valuable take-aways and connections.”
- “The only event where you can creatively collaborate with the best innovators in the retail industry!”
- “Shop! pulled off a safe and successful live event in the music city, Nashville. I enjoyed participating in the “Retail Challenge” and the many content-rich sessions over the 2.5 day event. More so, after months of video conferencing, the in-person engagement with industry peers and influencers brought a recharged synergy.”
- “I loved my experience at Shop! Ideation 2021. The speakers were well-chosen and couldn’t have been more relevant. I was able to network with others after the world had been shutdown to opportunities like this for the past 18 months or so.”
- “Shop! brought the leaders of the industry together to unify and collaborate on the future of Retail, these leaders provided guidance wisdom and a great sense of curiosity towards the future of retail.”
