What to Expect at Ignite 2020
LEARN how to streamline store operations and maximize profits.Ignite features expert-led keynotes, workshops, and breakout sessions that focus on the most pertinent subjects in retail today. New technologies are emerging and changing the speed and methods of store operations. Learn about perpetual inventory, loss prevention, secure payment processing, customer loyalty & marketing, general ledger functions, dynamic promotions, e-commerce, and more.
Forge beneficial industry relationships and expand your NETWORK.Trade tips and technical knowledge while you mingle with retailers from more than eight different industries and make lasting connections. Ignite is focused on business before pleasure, but sometimes you can have both. Ignite 2020 will officially kick off with a cocktail reception. Attendees can also expect other opportunities to interact with colleagues, like our annual conference party, and an Ignite closing event.
Develop skills needed to effectively LEAD 21st century retail operationsIgnite welcomes high-profile business thought leaders who will inspire and encourage audiences. Listen to accomplished minds who will embolden you to hone your capacity for executive leadership. Our retail partners are ambitious and aim to stand against Amazon, Walmart, and other global giants who have dared to stomp into their backyards. Through CATAPULT®, ECRS is committed to providing retailers with the tools needed to match these ambitions.
Explore the Product Lab to ENHANCE your product mix.The Product Lab sits at the heart of our purpose: Ignite exists because we believe that you can make your business better. Here, retailers can meet face-to-face with ECRS experts, and other carefully-selected exhibitors, for discussion and demonstration of innovations that will take their operations to the next level.
I'd tell other retailers... attend! Sign up right away! Talk to as many people as you can, and go to as many of the breakout sessions as you can. Every time Avondale comes to Ignite, we learn something new.
