Retail industry news delivered directly to you. Subscribe to Retail-Insider.

We wanted to be part of an event where we can network with retail industry professionals and academics. As a result, we became involved with the University of Alberta School of Retailing Thought Leadership Conference, and we’re inviting you to attend. The half-day conference is conveniently held at a hotel directly connected to the terminal at Edmonton International Airport on March 6, 2015, and Retail Insider is hosting a party at the hotel the night before. 

The event is for networking, as well as learning. A number of exceptional speakers will present, including Yorkdale Shopping Centre leasing manager Greg Schmidt, as well as keynote speaker Antony Karabus, head of HRC Advisory, who will speak on the topic of the future of Canadian retailing. Other prominent speakers from Human Resources, New Media, and Analytics will be present.

Tickets are regularly priced at $179 each, and readers can get tickets for only $129 using discount code retailinsider.  Discounts are also available for overnight hotel stays at the impressive Renaissance Hotel at Edmonton International Airport. We chose the venue for its unusual trendy interiors and great food, as well as its convenient location for those flying in from around the country.

Come join us, because we plan on having a great time. To learn more, visit or email Emily Salsbury at
