We're all very excited here about the fact that next week we will host the third annual RetailNext Executive Forum. The RetailNext Executive Forum was established to create a venue in which the leading thinkers in the in-store analytics field can share knowledge and opinions about the practice of measuring and optimizing brick-and-mortar stores and about how to use RetailNext in particular to accomplish those goals. Converging next week in nearby Santa Cruz, CA will be executives with roles in retail operations, analyst firms, retail property management companies, third-party data providers, technology providers, e-commerce, and of course RetailNext.
The two previous iterations of the RetailNext Executive Forum proved to be very useful in crystalizing the pragmatic ways that retailers can use in-store analytics to drive the bottom line. They encouraged retailers to learn from each other and built a community of like minded individuals who could help each other explore this exciting new era in retailing. We expect the third forum to be the largest and most productive by far.
Stay tuned for bulletins from the Executive Forum and watch Twitter for #RNForum2013.
