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.

On your mark. Get set. Accelerate.

When normal life was put on hold, retail never stopped. We kept moving, striving. Continually changing to meet the changing needs of our customers and communities. And now that people know we’re capable of more, they expect it. To keep up in the next chapter of retail, we can’t slow down. In fact, it’s time to accelerate.

At this year's Big Show the retail industry came together, and big things happened! Attendees returned to NYC to get all the content, make all the contacts, and discover all the tech that will not just prepare them, but accelerate them into this new era.
