BIG Show Innovation Lab (iLab)

iLab 2017

Join more than 33,000 retail professionals in New York City’s Javits Center as they discover new ideas, get actionable takeaways and build strong relationships with the brightest and most innovative players in the retail world.

Since its inception, the iLab has been a destination not to be missed. The bar has been raised and demand has been strong for more innovation, more futuristic and more creative technologies. Because of this, the iLab has expanded, moved to the River Pavilion on level 4 of the Javits, and will focus on:

  • 3D printing
  • AI
  • AR/VR
  • Drones
  • Robotics
  • Wearables

As a leader in the technology industry, you are being offered a unique opportunity to demonstrate your products and services to the decision-makers of the retail industry as part of the iLab.

Your participation will give you the opportunity to showcase your work and interact with leading retailers to provide a look at how your technology could be an integral piece of the retail world moving forward. Whether you are ready for market or still in development, this is the audience that can help you shape a retail strategy and forge a road into this dynamic industry.
