Imagine the Possibilities...When Education Meets Networking!

Community Meetings | Day 1
The beauty of the RSPA is that it brings together the diverse parts of the retail technology ecosystem. The RSPA’s vision is to build community among its members. At RetailNOW 2014, we’ll be dedicating the first full day of the event to community-building and conversation-starting. Community sessions are open to ALL attendees, and give our wonderfully varied membership time to find commonalities, and common solutions.

STS Community Event (w/ Luncheon)
If you’re a regular reader of RSPA’s connect magazine, you have likely seen the work of the Strategy Technology Solutions (STS) Committee. Since October 2013, the Committee has been contributing STS Solution Profiles to connect: articles which highlight the latest technologies within retail technology, and inform RSPA Resellers on key aspects that matter when making the decision to add new technologies to their solutions offerings. At RetailNOW 2014, the STS Committee is bringing the spirit of those articles to this informative session, that will assist you with navigating the Show Floor. Join Committee Members (representing varied parts of the Vendor community) as they discuss some of the topics covered in articles, help you Identify new deployable solutions being represented on the show floor; provide pointers on how to Perform due diligence on companies and strategic technology solutions you see at the tradeshow; and through the information provided, Facilitate connections between you and the vendors of these innovative solutions.
