The National Retail Federation’s big show – NRF 2020 – brought together retailers, brands, analysts and innovators at the #1 global retail event. It was the Big Show indeed – about 40,000 attendees from over 90 countries gathered in New York City in January to see over 800 exhibitors (including Dassault Systèmes’ CENTRIC PLM) and hear from 400 speakers across 175 sessions.

Major themes across the sessions, keynotes and analysts coalesced around five key drivers.

Despite the reduction of big box stores, increase of online shopping, and changing market demographics and buying habits, retail persists. As we see from NRF2020, brands and retailers are embracing the challenges. They clearly seek the vision, with new technologies, innovation and experimentation to continuously reinvent retail to best serve consumers and grow their future.
