NEW YORK, Feb. 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The leadership team behind Shoptalk, the world's leading community of retail innovators, announced today the launch of Retail Club, which will organize local, small-format gatherings for retail professionals throughout the year and across the US, starting with New York City. Other cities will follow, creating the retail industry's first local professional communities.
Additional details about Retail Club will be shared on Sunday, March 3, 2019, during the opening general session at Shoptalk in Las Vegas.
"Retail Club's goal is to bring retail professionals together year-round in small peer groups for meaningful and fun experiences," said Anil D. Aggarwal, founder and chief executive officer of Retail Club. "Retail Club events help people live richer lives by expanding their circle of industry friends, engaging in collaborative conversations, and enjoying experiences at exclusive venues."
Retail Club events are enabled by a proprietary software platform that is designed to connect peers across shared interests and personalize their interactions and engagement. This technology allows Retail Club's gatherings to operate at an unprecedented scale, reaching hundreds of events and empowering thousands of individuals throughout the year.
"Retail Club provides the retail industry with the much-needed connective tissue that's currently lacking and critical to elevating collaboration during a period of industry transformation that's here to stay," said Caroline Farley, co-founder and chief growth officer of Retail Club.
"Retail Club is the first high-frequency, high-value community in retail. It complements Shoptalk perfectly in helping create the future of retail. Best of all, we're focused on delivering events that are as enjoyable as they are valuable."
