Important Update

We have recently learned that the Javits Center, which is being used as a venue for vaccine distribution for New York residents, will most likely be unavailable during the first week of June, which is when we had planned to hold the Second Chapter of our annual NRF Big Show.

After successfully launching the virtual Chapter 1 of Retail’s Big Show in January, we are preparing to return online in June to provide more expansive content, networking, entertainment and expert insights. In the weeks ahead, we will unveil a new and exciting offering that only NRF can provide for the industry, serving as a prelude for when we return to the newly expanded Javits Center in January 2022 with the largest retail trade show in the world.

Big Show returns to the Big Apple.

This has been an unprecedented year, with the retail industry showing tremendous resilience, agility and leadership in the face of a global pandemic. It's with that spirit that the National Retail Federation is proud to announce Retail's Big Show will be back in New York City in June 2021.

NRF 2021: Retail’s Big Show – Chapter Two is an in-person event meant to continue the retail industry’s path forward that begins with NRF 2021 – Chapter 1, a virtual version of our show taking place in January 2021.

NRF 2021 – Chapter 2 has all the features you've come to expect from Retail’s Big Show, including all new curated sessions, networking programs and an Expo featuring innovative installations from the industry’s brightest solution providers.
