We’d like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who attended and made the Ignite 2018 experience possible.
More than 150 retail professionals from all over the U.S. and Canada came together in Asheville, NC, to “learn, network, and lead” from sunrise to sunset.
For three days, attendees were able to hear keynotes from accomplished retailers like Harold Lloyd, business leaders like Richard Rierson, and leadership gurus like Haydn Shaw. Nineteen unique breakout sessions ranging in topic and scope covered strategies and tactics for supercharging retail stores of all kinds, featuring retail experts like Joy Nicholas, rising stars like Angela Flatland, and authoritative voices in business and technology like Steve Bishop.
Each evening provided a chance for attendees to unwind in social settings. We kicked off with an opening cocktail social on Monday, shared laughs at a murder mystery dinner theater on Tuesday, and took a trip to Sierra Nevada’s pristine brewing campus on Wednesday. These evening activities were all great opportunities to make friends and network with colleagues.
If you’ve been to Ignite before, you’ve seen first-hand just how serious the CATAPULT community is about your success. For those we missed this time around, we hope you’ll join us at Ignite 2019 so you can experience the full benefits of being involved in the CATAPULT community.
In either case, we would like to encourage you to take a moment to read about the Ignite 2018 experience!
