One of the top reasons retailers continue coming back to Insight year after year is for peer-to-peer networking and exchange. You will gain battle-tested insight, best practices, and lessons learned from the Revionics team and industry retail pioneers (many with 10+ years working with Revionics!) which are unmatched.
In addition to gaining critical insight from industry leaders, including retail trends, best practices and success strategies during our plenary session and breakout tracks, we have numerous networking events scheduled to ensure you have plenty of time to connect with you retail peers. Whether it is in-depth conversations at breakfast or lunch or networking during the Retail Rockstar Bash, these peer-to-peer exchanges will re-define how you think about retail. When you register to attend Insight 2017, we hope you will take advantage of some of these activities that offer quality peer-to-peer engagement with a distinct Austin flavor.
