For three unforgettable days this summer, Ignite 2018 will bring together retailers, industry experts, and technology gurus so that you can experience innovation, idea generation, and cutting-edge thought leadership. Join us July 16 – 18th, in Asheville NC, as we discuss trends on the horizon and how you can position your retail space for success.
“With Ignite, I have found that it’s not just a technology event – its actually a business success event.”

What all does Ignite 2018 have to offer?
1. Crush Obstacles, Set Goals, & Seize Success
Learn to crush obstacles, set new goals, and seize them for enterprise success. Each year, Ignite welcomes high-profile thought leaders who will inspire and encourage all who attend. This year, we have created a line-up of thought leaders that will leave you with more than just a list of take-a-ways. Listen to accomplished minds who will revitalize you to hone your capacity for executive leadership.
2. See the Future of Retail
In order to give you the most industry and technical knowledge, we have reserved more meeting space than any Ignite conference before to provide you with even more breakout sessions led by experts from all walks of the industry. With more session offerings comes more opportunity to stay ahead of the curve in the ever changing retail world so you don’t make the mistake of falling behind.
3. Network with Hundreds of Retail Peers
Industry experts aren’t the only ones with the experience to tackle obstacles. We want you to come to Ignite 2018 with an idea and leave with a goal, a vision, and a plan of action. Ignite 2018 will provide you with the opportunity to absorb and reciprocate ideas from retail visionaries just like you in small group breakout sessions, and make lasting connections during the invaluable networking opportunities that Ignite 2018 will provide you.
4. Enhanced opportunity for one-on-one time with ECRS gurus
Was there an ECRS employee you wanted to meet at Ignite 2017? Do you want the chance to talk about a feature of CATAPULT with someone who helped develop it? Do you want to hear veteran CATAPULT experts share best practices and tips on how to maximize the ROI on your software suite?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you need to be at Ignite 2018. We are working to bring as many ECRS team members to this year’s event as possible as a result of direct feedback from Ignite 2017.
5. New! ECRS Expo Room
While your CATAPULT suite allows you to stay ahead of the competition with its powerful feature set, we want to set you up for success in all areas of retail. This year, we are inviting specially selected exhibitors with products and services that we believe will enhance your store operation to optimize success. Our Expo Room will be conveniently connected to the Product Lab.
