The BIG Show is Back!
The National Retail Federation's Annual Convention & EXPO earned the nickname "Retail's BIG Show" years ago and because the name was so appropriate, it stuck. Today, Retail's BIG Show is NRF's flagship industry event held annually in New York City. The four day event offers unparalleled education, collegial networking, and an enormous EXPO Hall full of technologies and solutions. After more than a century, Retail's BIG Show is still the place where you can see and experience all things retail. It is truly one-stop-shopping for industry professionals from around the world.

Your Label Is Showing: Private Label Session Set for Sunday, January 12 at 2:00 PM
Among the educational sessions for The Big Show is: Your Label is Showing - From Ready-to-Wear to Supermarket, Retailers are Growing through Private Brands. Coordinated by JGA, this session features retailers and brands from food to fashion and everything in-between. While retailers are creating and evolving private labels and brands in new environments for growth, brand concepts continue to help retailers differentiate themselves and drive profits. At this NRF educational session, attendees can learn about retail case studies for distinctive international and domestic retailers who continue to launch new brands and expand their business and profits accordingly. The session will help attendees learn how entrepreneurial development can drive or extend new concepts through shop-in-shops, franchise or licensing partners -- divergent paths with a common goal to create new business and opportunities by leveraging brands. Joining JGA Chairman Ken Nisch to present are Mortimer Singer, President and CEO of Marvin Traub Associates and Jordi Allepuz, Visual Director of Grupo Cortefiel.
