Consumer Product Showcase Opportunities

Breakthrough connections

NRF's Consumer Product Showcase is where new products are found, small businesses are discovered and breakthrough partnerships are made. 

This took place January 15 and January 16 during NRF 2023: Retail's Big Show. The Showcase provided a forum for suppliers, entrepreneurs, small businesses and brands to feature their consumer-facing products to leading retail buyers and merchandisers.  

84% of participating companies were minority-owned, women-owned, veteran-owned, disability-owned or LGBTQ+-owned.
