Day at a Glance:

"Times they are a-changin'," especially in the retail industry. The last few years have been a catalyst for many industry-changing events, such as the rise of sustainable materials, the so-called "Great Resignation," and the competitive DTC landscape.

The SKU aims to tackle the challenges and opportunities brought on by these significant changes, such as how to build better systems for sustainability, create and sustain brand loyalty, and create employee happiness and retention. Industry leaders from Kroger, Athletic Greens, and many more will share their knowledge about these topics to give you actionable insights to take home with you. These insights include steps to reduce your carbon footprint, increase brand awareness and affinity, and much more.

We'll also have break-out rooms between these presentations where you'll get to interact directly with presenters in a panel-style discussion about topics such as marketing your retail brand, how to shift operational needs, and more.

There will also be plenty of opportunities to connect with fellow retail professionals before and during the event.

While the SKU is a short, one-day event, it certainly won't come up short on value. The event's jam-packed agenda will pull you away from work for one day and send you back with a broader professional network and strategies you can immediately implement. Spend your time and money wisely, and we'll see you in October!
