What will be covered at the conference?
Keynote speakers will offer strategies, insights, and inspiration to help you elevate your brand, outcompete your rivals, and thrive in today’s retail industry. Ignite covers a variety of topics tailored to all industry professionals in breakout sessions, panels, and roundtables, included in three tracks: HOW Track, WHY Track, and TREND Track. We’ll cover new and existing CATAPULT features, use cases, industry insights, and best practices that will propel your profits higher, elevate customer satisfaction, and inspire technology adoption to stay ahead of the curb. 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.
How is this Ignite different from year’s past?
Ignite will be hosted virtually on July 26-28, 2021. Even though the format is different than our usual in-person event, we strive to provide the same value-packed conference experience.
Our mission to inspire and empower retailers with innovative, data-driven technology hasn’t changed… but, inevitably, this industry is ever-changing and demands that our retail success community remain adaptable and ahead of the curb. At Virtual Ignite 2020, we discussed that great companies are built one idea, one customer, and one employee at a time, and, together, we’re transforming the industry. This idea still rings true today, but we’re taking it a step forward.
Ignite is all about transforming transactional data into relationships. How can we, as a retail community, enhance the consumer experience and elevate profits? By enriching the transactional experience into one that creates long-lasting relationships with consumers. As the community has grown, so has the scope and depth of what Ignite can offer the industry. You can still expect expert-level insights on how to maximize value from the CATAPULT platform, but we’re not stopping there. Ignite isn’t just about technology, or mastering CATAPULT products, it’s about mastering retail. We’re bringing in a wide-range of experts and leadership luminaries who will offer unique, high-level perspectives on how to win at retail in the years ahead.
What does the conference cost?
Ignite is an investment. We invest in our CATAPULT retailers and those retailers who attend invest in us, with their time, their money, and their trust. This collaborative relationship helps propel us forward as one retail success community. That’s why even as we expand the scope and depth of the value that Ignite offers, we’ve sought a way to keep monetary costs low for our attendees.

- Success Pass: CATAPULT Retailers who choose the Success Pass can register for individual Success Workshop Day workshops, which are priced at $99 each.

Note: All conference sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday are open to all attendees. The Success Pass, which includes Monday’s Success Workshops, can be purchased at an additional cost. View the registration page for a side-by-side comparison of what each pass offers.
Why does the Success Pass cost more?
Success Workshop Day is exclusively dedicated to advanced users and Success Navigators who wish to level up with CATAPULT. These workshops are comprised of small, intimate groups of retailers and are facilitated by an ECRS Consultant or CATAPULT Expert. Because this is an exclusive, hands-on opportunity, there is an additional fee to participate. These workshops are a supplementary “add-on” to the main conference to add even more value to the Ignite experience.
Each workshop is priced individually at $99 per workshop, so attendees can register for the workshops that will benefit them the most. Keep in mind, space is limited. Avoid the waitlist by registering today!
*Note: The workshops are free to Success Navigator subscribers (a good reason to sign up).
