Event Overview

Retail's premier salon-style event for
technology, marketing and digital leaders

Exceptional customer experiences aren't the product of isolated teams; instead, it's the collective brainpower from multiple departments that breathes life into the best retail experiences.

NRF Nexus is the premier salon-style event for senior retail tech, digital and marketing executives. Each year, an exclusive list of participants addresses top-of-mind, relevant and forward-thinking topics regarding the latest trends in retail technology, digital innovation, MarTech ingenuity, unforeseen consumer trends, next-gen business process strategies and most importantly, the strategic synchronization between retail’s increasingly important roles of technology, digital/ecommerce and marketing.

With a singular focus, NRF Nexus attendees stay as one cohesive group throughout the entire event, forming a community of thought leaders where everyone has a voice in the room and are bonded by examining new solutions to the industry’s current and future challenges. We've curated an exclusive environment that fosters honest peer-to-peer discussion and knowledge sharing, restricts press access, and facilitates genuine connections among the industry's finest minds.
