Heading to the annual Summit in a few weeks? With a few jam-packed days of great sessions and meetings to attend, it can be a bit daunting to create your agenda.

So we broke it down into 3 digestible sections for you: Learn, Experience and Have Fun.

Here’s our guide to help you navigate


There are a slew of great sessions on the agenda this year that dive into the show’s theme of Retail’s Digital Rush.
