As the longest-running event of its kind in the industry, the design:retail Forum covers topics and discussions of the most pressing issues among thought leaders in the retail design community.

The event brings together the cream of the crop from the retail design industry, including store design, architecture and visual merchandising retail executives as well as design/architecture firm principals. *Attendees include the high-profile members of design:retail’s Editorial Advisory Board, in addition to invited guests, registered attendees, our sponsors and our magazine staff.

 

 

Attendees can expect to see talk show style settings, live audience participation, interactive conversation and breakout group discussions. Focused heavily on audience interaction, information and inspiration, this intimate event allows the opportunity to build relationships, discover the latest trends and learn from the leading minds of the industry.
