There’s still time to register for Canada’s biggest retail conference, STORE 2018, taking place May 29-30 at the Toronto Congress Centre in Toronto. The annual conference is hosted by Retail Council of Canada

Join over 2,500 retail leaders from across North America for two days of discussions and learning at STORE 2018. There will also be ample networking opportunities, as well as two awards dinners, with more details to follow. 

Packed with more than 85 speakers – representing the “who’s who” of retail in North America – this year’s two-day conference will identify critical trends and shifts in retail and provide retailers and their partners with information, contacts, strategies and tactics for ongoing success.

The conference has been structured to provide retailers with the choice of attending both provocative keynote presentations that cover matters affecting all retailers, as well as concurrent sessions that focus on store operations, marketing, merchant and supply chain, and digital and mobile. Content at STORE 2018 is also developed so regardless of a retailer’s size or type, whether large, medium or independent, mass merchant, apparel or grocery, there is a stream with relevant topics.
