At ERPLY, we’re is always looking ahead at what the future may have in store. That’s why at the start of 2017, our team is extremely excited to be attending the National Retail Federation’s (NRF) 106th Annual Convention & EXPO. The NRF is the world’s largest retail trade association with members ranging from independent retailers, department stores, chain restaurants and more.
NRF’s Expo, commonly known simply as Retail’s BIG Show, is the who’s who of everything retail; A few of those key players include Epson, Intel, and Microsoft. Known to be the world’s leading retail event, the three day annual event is held in New York City and is ranked as one of the Top 200 events in North America. This year NRF has gathered 33,000 retail professionals and vendors, from over 94 countries and all 50 states. There will be over 510 exhibitors, 118 sponsors and over 300 speakers throughout the convention. One of many influential speakers will include Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group, one of the world’s most recognized and respected brands.
Retail’s BIG Show is the place to be for all retailers this January, including ERPLY! Our team has many goals in mind while attending the three day convention. One of our main goals is to promote our franchise model and get more people excited about everything ERPLY’s software has to offer. While in the efforts to achieve that goal, our team is looking forward to the one of a kind networking that takes place
within the entire retail community.
By doing this, our team is able to find solutions and new ideas to further our growth for 2017. The content that is provided at this event is unlike any other convention in the retail field. At NRF, we get the chance to share what we’ve learned throughout the past year, such as our workflows and problem solving, with other retail companies. In turn, we also get the chance to learn techniques for sales, design, or customer relations from the other major players in our field.Lastly, we are excited to have many of our current partners that will also be attending this year’s convention. Ms. Cash Drawer, Elo, Bixolon, Vantiv, Citizen, Cayan are just a few of the familiar faces we will be sharing the floor with at Retail’s Big Show. Our team is looking forward to embracing the opportunity to all that comes with attending the NRF 106th annual Retail’s Big Show.
