Published on 8 January 2021
NRF 2021

Evolution can never be expected to die away in the retail industry. With any new technological innovation or cultural shift, retail evolves! The significant rate of innovation that has risen during the pandemic has shifted the customer behavior at a wide scale and retailers must foresee and adapt to meet the new demands ahead of time.

National Retail Federation (NRF) had always forecasted a turbulent shift in retail supply chains for years now. But this time, as the nation has collectively discovered in 2020, it's hard to even perceive what lies beyond the horizon. The pandemic that has brought the world to a virtual standstill for months can definitely overturn the predictions. But what lies ahead for retailers in 2021?
To keep the retailers focused on discipline, NRF is again getting the retail industry together at NRF 2021: Retail's Big Show - Chapter One with all the insights and experiences that has been learned in the past year.

The annual conference and expo of NRF has been around for more than 100 years, and as Retail's Big Show progressed with the times, each year has been a little different. For 2021, the event is all about the retail sector changes and responds to the COVID-19 pandemic that has for almost a year gripped the nation and the globe.

Once NRF 2021-Chapter 1 opens on January 12, there will be plenty of opportunities to network, hear from a prominent list of speakers, connect with exhibitors, and participate in the newly built Collaborative Discussion Rooms, the Equality Lounge and the Exhibitor Big Ideas. By staying together and updated, exchanging ideas and creating strong relationships, NRF is expecting to drive the future of retail forward with the exclusive sessions from the industry experts.
NRF 2021: Retail's Big Show - Chapter One brings together the best minds in the industry to educate, inspire and help transform companies on crucial topics that are being evolved around the industry post the pandemic. The January virtual edition of the event offers special sessions featuring industry leaders and frank discussions about the obstacles retailers face today and tomorrow's possibilities they need to be focusing in particular.
