The Leading In-Store Innovation Conference Chain

Retail. Reimagined.
At Future Stores Miami, you’ll explore how leading retailers are overhauling their in-store experience and balancing high tech with high touch. You’ll walk away with actionable strategies to use store technology effectively, retool your front line associates and create the store experience of the future.

What’s next in 2020, and beyond? You’ll find out at Future Stores Miami, the only conference that prepares senior retail executives in operations, design, digital, and technology to lead their companies into the future.

Why Attend Future Stores?
Get Future Focused Content From Those Leading The Way
You’ll get detailed tactics from trendsetters and trailblazers that are revolutionizing the in-store experience. With content that deep dives into topics such as AI, virtual merchandising, experience design, AR/VR, omni-channel and the tech-augmented staff, you’ll leave with tons of strategies delivered by leading executives that are in the trenches solving tough problems.

Build Connections Like Never Before
We’re not a tradeshow or a vendor-led seminar. Our agenda is 100% focused on your biggest challenges and opportunities.

This is your opportunity to develop relationships, make new contacts and speak “off-the-record” with your peers. You’ll benefit from tons of interactivity with over 20 hours of discussion groups, roundtables, and structured and unstructured networking activities every day.

See Innovation in Action: Our Exclusive Store Tours
See first hand how your peers are merging physical and digital experiences – in-store. You’ll get immersive learning opportunities and a behind the scenes look at leading brick and mortar retailers. Join our exclusive store tours, one of the most exciting parts of the event. But hurry, they sell out fast!
