2017's Hottest Retail & Ecommerce Event:
The New Community For Innovators

  • “Shoptalk, the retail and e-commerce mega conference that launched in 2016...has become a major player in the space.”

  • “The inaugural Shoptalk conference… highlighted the discourse taking place from within, ranging from the broader macro trends impacting retail to diving into the weeds of high technology.”

  • “Shoptalk 2016 gave me immense confidence that the talent is out there. Anil Aggarwal is a genius because he provided a forum for the convergence of these eclectic voices that will provide a playbook for the future of retail.”

  • “If the retail world can agree on one thing, it is that the line up at Shoptalk 2016 is impressive… The retail industry has been waiting for an event like this.”

  • “If one thing is clear at this gathering of the retail industry’s top brass, it is that pretty much everyone in the sector is figuring out how to beat, collaborate with or be the next Amazon.com.”

  • “As someone who has attended or spoken at hundreds of conferences globally spanning more than two decades, I was blown away. Had you been there, you wouldn’t have believed that Shoptalk was in its inaugural year.”

  • “Only in its first year, the conference is generating loads of buzz, with tickets selling out, even after organisers added an additional 1,000 slots.”

  • “At Shoptalk, practical tech is grabbing more dollars than sexy tech.”
