Registration will open in the first quarter of 2018. Keep checking our website and enter your email in “Stay Informed” box at the top of the page to be notified as soon as registration opens.
Keynote speakers will offer strategies and insights to elevate your brand, fight back against the retail giants, and succeed as an insurgent in this industry. We’ll cover existing and new CATAPULT features, use cases, and best practices that will increase your profits, elevate customer satisfaction, and decrease your loss, overstock, and labor costs to power your success in this brave new digital age. Tips and tricks of the trade will be shared with like-minded retail visionaries to spark your mind and empower success for you to take back to your store.
Ignite 2018 has been taken to the next level. At Ignite 2017, you learned about the direction of the retail industry and the changing technology landscape. At Ignite 2018 we are going to power you up to be insurgents of change and re-energizing your store from the ground up. Ignite 2018 is tailored to executives and vision-makers through advanced thought leadership ideals. While we will still offer sessions around CATAPULT products, attendees can expect less basic “how-to” training and more high-level discussion on how they can maximize and extract the value of the CATAPULT platform. We will have more outside expert keynotes and a wider range of session topics. Not to mention, we have more conference activities and social events.
If you are a CATAPULT retailer, prospective customer invited by an ECRS Sales Executive, or a special guest, then the Ignite Conference is free to attend. The only cost for you is your travel and lodging. The seminars, food, and festivities are on ECRS! We host Ignite annually to demonstrate that we are not just your retail provider, but a partner in your success. Our goal is to maximize the value of your retail investment, as well as show our appreciation with an educational, exciting, and enlightening conference.
*Note: All conference sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday are open to all attendees. The only portion of the conference that may have a cost is the optional Success Workshops held on Monday, July 16.
The first day of the conference is dedicated to exclusive Success Workshops. These workshops will be comprised of a small, intimate groups of retailers facilitated by an ECRS Consultant or CATAPULT Expert. Because this is an exclusive chance to work through retail challenges in a small collaborative group with a consultant or expert, there is a small fee to attend. These workshops should be thought of as a valuable “add-on” to the main conference which kicks off Monday night with a cocktail reception. Keep in mind, space is limited. All Success Workshop spaces were taken at Ignite 2017 and we did have to turn away some retailers to maximize the value of the share-group style workshops for the early responders.
*Note: The workshops are free to Success Navigator subscribers (a good reason to sign up).
Breakfast and lunches will be provided each day. We will always have nightly entertainment which includes either appetizers or dinners. All meals, entertainment, and events are provided free of charge.
We are able to host multiple executives per business. Due to our executive focus, we recommend that Ignite attendees be organizational leaders, key decision makers, or visionaries within their business.
Yes! Although the sessions are reserved for attendees, each attendee may bring (1) guest to the evening events. If your spouse/partner/friend works alongside you in the business, we invite them to register as an attendee.
