Shoptalk, the leading global event for retail and ecommerce, today announced the speaker lineup for its 2024 conference taking place March 17–20 at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

“This year’s carefully curated speaker lineup includes influential retail leaders from across the industry, who will share the freshest perspectives on the technologies, trends and tactics that are shaping retail today,” said Sophie Wawro, Global President, Shoptalk. “Shoptalk attendees will gain valuable insights that help them propel their businesses and have complimentary access to Meetup, our unparalleled networking program that launched to rave reviews at last year’s event.”

Meetup is the retail industry’s largest and most productive way to connect with senior executives from leading retailers and brands. The program generated overwhelmingly positive reviews when it debuted last year, with 90% of the 50,000 meetings facilitated through Meetup rated positively. This year, more retailers and brands than ever before are confirmed to attend Shoptalk and take part in Meetup, and the program will facilitate more than 75,000 meetings among executives from every sector of the retail ecosystem.
