Several of our consultants have been organising Learning Expeditions to NRF Retail's Big Show in New-York since 2016. The city that never sleeps and NRF Retail’s Big Show hold no secrets from us.
We know the retail industry & its main actors very well. Our Founder and our COO have more than 20 years of experience working in the retail industry (travel, luxury, fashion & entertainment)
Joining a Learning Expedition with StratNXT is a guarantee to share unique moments with industry experts and learn our vision on the future of retail. After each edition, we consolidate the highlights of the whole NRF Retail’s Big Show conference in a “Back From NRF” presentation (see here the 2022 report).
We found the perfect balance between conference events and unique NYC experiences. You will attend the most valuable conferences, discover the latest innovations on the booths, meet with the most relevant experts and also visit the must-see concept-stores in New York City.
Before the start of our Learning Expedition, we will share with you our vision of the future of retail, based on NRF Retail's Big Show 2022 edition and we will collect your priorities & areas of interest to tailor our expedition.
We screen the best conferences to attend based on your top priorities (since not all of them are relevant as some are financed by big tech/consulting companies) and organise store tours and meetings with solution providers in line with your areas of interest. We are also responsible for booking 4-star hotel reservations in Manhattan and registering your profile to get your NRF Pass for the three days of conference, which will take place at the Jacob Javits Center in Manhattan.
Once you arrive in NYC, just let yourself go! We will take care of everything. Our preparation ahead of the trip ensures a smooth & optimised expedition. We have a network of more than 600 clients within the Labelium group, giving you an incredible opportunity to meet with your peers. We guarantee that you will not miss any important technological innovation. We visit the most interesting concept and flagship stores prior to the Learning Expedition to make sure the retail tours provide relevant new experiences to you. Finally, we are fully convinced that enjoying the New York lifestyle with your peers is also part of the success of our Learning Expedition.
After we come back, we will bring the NRF back to you and your teams. We will share with you our assessment of the 2023 NRF Retail's Big Show edition during a "Back from NRF 2023" conference, when we identify hey learnings and major trends. Our 2022 edition was attended by more than 1,000 participants.
