  • “Over the past 20 years, I have attended Retail Smarter nearly every year. I block out the dates on my calendar each year because it's such a fantastic opportunity to meet and interact with other retailers, outstanding students with career aspirations and experts in things I'm interested in.”

    - Steve Knopik, CEO,Beall's Inc.
  • “Retail Smarter is a must-attend conference for my team because we want to learn from retail's top leaders—their insights and fresh ideas on growing the retail business. I always come away with at least one significant "a-ha" moment that I can apply to improve my own business.”

    - James Lewis, Founder & CEO, Enhanced Retail Solutions LLC
  • "Retail smarter is a conference that inspires innovation through bringing retail professionals together to discuss the industry. The conference pushes you to think in new ways, dream big, and to redefine what smart means for your company. As a student, I left the conference inspired about the future of retail and excited to one day start my own career."
