Shoptalk Sunday – The Ultimate Vegas Pregame

It’s that time of year in our industry: trade show season. For the next few months, thousands of ecommerce thought leaders, marketers, analysts, and vendors will flock to Vegas on a bi-weekly basis.

ShopTalk has secured the leadoff position for the season. In the short three-year lifetime of the event, the conference has become known as one of the best ecommerce events of the year purely for the number of impressive speakers. The custom ShopTalk caricature created for each speaker has become a coveted badge of distinction in the ecommerce industry. This year the line up doesn’t disappoint and includes over 120 top retail executives.

Per usual, speakers hail from the top dogs at Amazon and Google, veterans from the likes of Gap, Best Buy, and Coach; not to mention a nice long list of pure-play online retailers like M. Gemi, AllBirds (#1 fan girl right here!) and Stitch Fix.

This year, I am actually most excited about what the Blue Acorn team is calling ‘The Ultimate ShopTalk Pregame’ AKA Emarsys Revolution.

The event, hosted by Emarsys, sets the stage for a great week. Some of the brightest minds in the retail industry will give keynotes that inspire attendees with their vision for the future of marketing. The highlight of the pregame is a keynote from New York Times Best Selling author, Jay Baer. As a seasoned marketer, he’ll share his real-world expertise working with Fortune 500 brands and help you rethink the way you market to customers and improve their experience.

Did I mention that all of this happens at one of the hottest spots in Vegas: TopGolf!? Don’t worry, no golf experience required. I hope you’ll join us for a pre-game to Shoptalk.

Blue Acorn has a few free registration codes, so if you’re a merchant interested in attending, contact me and I’ll hook you up:
