What's a Retail Meetup?

A Retail Meetup is a one-of-a-kind, online meetings and collaboration event that brings a large group within the retail industry together for curated, double opt-in meetings and small group peer discussions. It’s a proven and productive way to connect online with both new and familiar faces, in a fun, friendly and open environment. Plus, it’s incredibly efficient--you can have 3 months worth of meetings in just 3 half-days!

More than 2,000 participants joined Retail Meetup’s inaugural event in October 2020. They completed over 20,000 meetings, making it retail’s largest meetings program ever! How were the meetings? When asked if they were satisfied with their meetings, an incredible 92% of participants said YES!

Here’s what else they had to say:

Plan Your Year, Every Year!

Shoptalk Fall Meetup in October 2020 was a tremendous success! So, we’ve added a permanent series of Retail Meetups to complement our Shoptalk and Groceryshop in-person events. We’re now omnichannel, just like retail, so you can utilize both our online and offline events to meet with your customers, partners, prospects, colleagues and friends throughout the year, every year. Omnichannel is truly where it’s at!
