NRF this year and how you can catch up with Zipline.
Where to Find Zipline at NRF in January
Although we won’t be making our annual pilgrimage to New York this January for NRF, we’re deep into preparations for the virtual event. Here’s what you need to know about NRF this year and how you can catch up with Zipline. Watch this video for more information.
Yes, NRF is online, but the organizers are doing a great job making it feel like a tradeshow. Each vendor will have a virtual booth where you can chat with representatives, download collateral and set up 1:1 meetings. The virtual booths will open up on January 12th. Please stop by, drop your card and set up a meeting. Each prospect that attends a 1:1 meeting with us will receive a Zipline Yeti tumbler.
You will also find Zipline on the big stage. We are bringing together three clients, BevMo!, American Eagle Outfitters and L.L.Bean, for a Big Ideas session, moderated by Zipline CEO and Co-founder, Melissa Wong. Attend a 1:1 meeting AND our Big Ideas session and we’ll enter you in a drawing to win a $500 gift card from any of our clients. Grocery, Pharmacy, Apparel, Beauty, Home Goods – – we have you covered!
Here are the details of our Big Ideas Session:
Date and Time: January 13th at 11:45am Pacific
React and Adapt – Transformation During Covid
Covid’s silver lining is that it is driving retailers to quickly transform their businesses to meet customers where they are. In 2020 we saw the rise of dark stores, new ways for customers to pick up merchandise, the fast-tracking of strategic initiatives that had been in the works for years, and much more. In this panel, moderated by Zipline’s co-founder and ceo, we talk with three retail leaders about how Covid-19 forced their businesses to stretch and flex in new ways and why they’re coming out operationally stronger on the other side.
Our Panel Participants are:
American Eagle Outfitters – Taryn Racin, Manager Store Communication
L.L.Bean – Corey Bouyea, Director Store Operations – U.S. Retail & Outlet Field Stores
BevMo! – Jessica Siwy – Sr. Manager of Store Operations & Customer Service
A visit to Nike’s first North American RISE store
