Retail Technology Salon during NRF23


Don’t miss out on this exclusive opportunity to network with top executives from retailers and brands from around the world at the Retail Technology Salon during NRF23. Hosted by The British Consulate of New York & retail think-tank PSFK, this event will provide a unique platform for attendees to meet their peers to discuss the latest trends in technology and how they will shape the retail industry in 2023 and beyond. Enjoy a buffet lunch and refreshments at a special venue just steps away from the Javits convention center, while engaging in meaningful conversations with your peers.

This informal mixer will include a short fireside conversation with UK & US retailers about the big bets they are placing on technology in 2023 and beyond. Ideal for executives at retailers and consumer goods companies. RSVP now as guest list is limited.

Panel Discussion

While our 2-hour drop-by session at the Classic Car Club beside the Javits will be fairly informal, I will moderate a 25 minute panel at 1pm to talk to leading retailers about where the industry will place their retail tech bets in 2023 and beyond. It should be very useful to everyone. Speakers include:
  • Jo Hickson – Head of Labs, Tech & Innovation at Tesco – LinkedIn
  • Margaret Safford, retail marketing leader, formerly of CVS & Staples – LI
  • Ross Neumann, Head of Partnerships, Lowe’s Innovation Labs – LI
