Retail Connect Events – Collaborate 2020

September 13 -15, 2020 | Virtual Conference

Shop! Environments Association has partnered with Retail Connect Events on Collaborate Virtual 2020. This online event provides the most efficient and effective way for
retail design professionals to meet and collaborate with each other for the purpose of
building profitable business relationships.

While the global pandemic has necessitated changing Collaborate 2020 to a virtual conference, attendees will get many of the same benefits as with an in-person event:

Meet with progressive buyers ready to embrace new retail design solutions as key strategic differentiators in creating innovative selling environments.


Senior level decision makers from some of the largest retail design & architectural firms, retail consultants and retailers. Our Executive attendees are actively looking for new ideas and new ways to build stronger brands, extend store reach and better deliver on the needs of customers.


A virtual experience that brings senior-level decision makers together with suppliers. Collaborate 2020 offers a means to increase the productivity of your sales or purchasing teams by collapsing the often expensive and lengthy sales cycle without the traditional cost of travel.
