1. You’ll see how customers are leveraging the power of AI to succeed *right now*

Getting into the swing of things with new tech can be intimidating—but the best way to fully grasp the power of AI in 2024 is to see it in action with an industry-leading retailer!

On Sunday, January 14 at 12:45-1:15 pm ET in the SAP Theater, hear from Avolta, a diversified retailer that’s using AI to empower employees working in some of the world’s busiest airports and ports and learn why Mitja Kulcar, Global Learning and Development Manager, says the tech has made all the difference to consistently impressive frontline performance.

2. You’ll hear Giant Eagle’s change management success story

If you’ve set a resolution to drive company-wide change in 2024, this will be the Big Ideas session for you!

From 1:30-2 pm ET on Monday, January 15, join Janis Leigh, EVP and Chief People Officer at Giant Eagle, for a lesson in successful (and sustainable) change management at scale. She’ll share the full story of her team’s digital adoption strategy that led to 30,000+ team members across multiple brands logging into a new platform several times a week.

3. You’ll get a lesson in agility from customer-obsessed retailer rue21

On Monday, January 15 at 11–11:30 am ET, catch Ann-Marie Clendenin (SVP Stores, Operations & Visual) and Karlyn Mattson (EVP and Chief Customer Officer) from rue21 as they lead a tactical discussion on how retailers can harness internal loyalty opportunities to drive the external business outcomes they’re looking for.

4. You’ll learn how to mitigate major retail disruptors at our booth

Find Axonify at Booth #3533 (and spot us at our partner Zebra’s Booth #3203) on Level 3 of the expo floor to discuss your unique frontline challenges and how our solution can help provide the support you’re missing.

5. You’ll get a new headshot to freshen up your digital presence

When you stop by, remember to say cheese! 

We’re offering complimentary executive headshots to visitors at the Axonify Headshot Studio (Booth #1018 on Level 1), so start the year off right and put your best self forward with a new professional profile pic.
