Posted on: December 16, 2022Updated on: November 24, 2023By: Maliyah Bernard

With 800 exhibitors, 100 sessions and plenty of special installations, anyone planning to attend Retail’s Big Show next year needs a game plan before stepping onto the expo floor if they want to maximize their time across the three days.  

Now that we have your attention, it’s time to get excited—because we’re going big at NRF!

Here are three reasons why connecting with us should be at the top of your NRF 2023 bucket list.

1. We have not one but TWO booths

The needs of today’s associates and customers have undergone rapid and major transformation. 

Between supply chain constraints, inflation rates, rising costs, staffing challenges and skill shortages, it’s a challenging time for any retail leader. But as we all know, there’s no shortcut to resolving these problems on your frontline—it’ll take the right strategies, tech and ongoing support to get your team across the finish line. 

Luckily, NRF attendees can get a DOUBLE dose of Axonify for even more opportunities to connect with our team and hear about how our solution can offer a simplified experience that enables workers to drive business outcomes. 

  • Booth #225 on Level 1
    Experience the can’t-miss demo of our integrated product to see how YOUR retail associates and administrators are able to access and plan learning, communication and enablement in the flow of work.
  • Booth #917 on Level 1
    Get a deeper look into why we’re built for retail and find out from our team how to bolster operational efficiency by focusing on associate enablement. (You can even skip the line by booking a meeting with our experts!)

2. We’re bringing big names to our Big Ideas sessions

Keeping up with the current, and future, state of retail means taking notes on the tried-and-tested tactics top retailers are leaning on to overcome challenges and achieve success. 

On January 16th and 17th, industry leaders from Kroger, Senchal Murphy, their Senior Director of Human Resources, and Lowe’s, Dave Sansavera, the Senior Director of Learning and Development for the global home improvement retailer, will be taking the stage during our Big Ideas sessions. Featuring moderators Gina Acosta, from Progressive Grocer, and Martin Newman, The Consumer Champion, the conversations will include valuable insights about how to build a more sustainable, customer-centric and engaged workforce that drives business forward.

You won’t want to miss their innovative approaches to retail success! Mark your calendar and check out the session details.

3. We’re setting aside time for connections—and cocktails

Arguably, at any in-person industry event, the most valuable takeaways are the connections you leave with. You never know when you might meet someone who’s like-minded and becomes a valued industry peer, find an insightful colleague who can help unlock a major challenge with a  fresh perspective or just someone who can relate to shared pain points in a significant way. We’ve carved out space for asking questions and networking across our sessions and other offerings to help you meet as many new contacts as possible along your NRF 2023 journey—including our own team.

Plus, we’re sponsoring a chic cocktail party—The RETHINK Retail Bash—for those looking for a unique experience away from the trade floor and an opportunity to mix and mingle with other top retail executives, analysts, educators, thinkers and doers. 
Learn more about what we have in store for NRF—happening at Jacob K. Javitz Convention Centre in NYC from January 15-17, 2023.
