***Join us for the 2015 Global Retailing Conference April 23-24, 2015 at the Westin La Paloma Resort

The Global Retailing Conference is on fire this year with world-class speakers and hot-off-the-press insider knowledge to help you “Ignite the Customer Experience.” Set for April 10 and 11, 2014 at the world-class Loews Ventana Canyon Resort, the two-day conference offers c-suite connections and knowledge about how the world’s top retail companies never let the brand passion cool.

If “Ignite the Customer Experience” just had these amazing presentations, it would be well worth the conference registration, but the Global Retail Conference offers participants a chance to interact with the industry’s leadership and make those professional connections that help your company grow and your career advance. Whether you're an independent retailer, business executive, CEO, marketer, HR executive or a future retail leader, this conference brings together the most innovative business leaders who share best practices that attendees can apply to their own businesses. And, don’t forget the annual golf tournament, where you’ll enjoy Tucson’s glorious spring weather and have time for those extended discussions with your foursome.

Now in its 18th year, the Global Retailing Conference promises an engaging venue with great opportunities to develop relationships. Become a sponsor and raise your company's profile and create brand visibility. Contact Kim personally at 520.626.7952, or click on our sponsor button for information on how to get involved.
