Join us for Ignite in Charlotte, NC!

Ignite 2023 marks the ninth year that ECRS has hosted the Ignite Retail Success Conference for the CATAPULT® Community. With humble beginnings as a customer appreciation conference, Ignite has grown into an industry-recognized event for local and regional grocery, co-op, beverage, convenience, and pharmacy retailers across the nation.

We’re pleased to announce that Ignite 2023 will he hosted close to home, in Charlotte, NC, just two hours South of ECRS headquarters. Bringing Ignite back to North Carolina, for the first time since 2018, opens the opportunity for retailers to meet the ECRS developers, product owners, and business leaders behind the CATAPULT platform.

Here’s why you should attend Ignite 2023:

  • Ignite is about YOU: ECRS exists because of of the CATAPULT Community. Ignite exists so retailers in the community can thrive. Ignite 2023 brings keynotes, expert-led panels, workshops hosted by industry veterans, and more retailer-led breakout sessions than before. The knowledge and resources offered are deeply valuable to retailers working to expand their business, create loyal customers, and grow their brand.
  • Catch up with Retailers Like You: Ignite 2022 brought together 250+ retailers, trusted partners, and ECRS employees. It is the best chance to engage with those who face the same challenges, and those who help you overcome those challenges with technology.
  • See the Latest Technology: Each year we feature the latest CATAPULT technology and hardware offerings in the Product Lab, our largest product display of the year. Ignite gives retailers a chance to witness the power of CATAPULT automation first-hand, in a store-like environment , which is unlike any trade show or showroom demo.
  • Your peers tell you to: Don’t take our word for it, listen to other retailers who attend Ignite: “Ignite is a great opportunity to talk to others that are using the solution and have the same pain points as you. They have new ideas on using the same solution in a different way than what we thought to use it for.” – Redner’s Markets
