Why Exhibit?


Get Your Products Into the Hands of Retailers


The retail leaders attending GlobalShop are driving retail’s renaissance. Last year attendees from the hottest names in retail attended to stay ahead of trends and to catch a glimpse of what’s next. Industry pillars like Starbucks, Target, Ulta, Verizon, Walgreens and Wal-Mart; resurgent department stores like Macy’s and Kohl’s, and cross-overs like Warby Parker and Google all saw enough value in GlobalShop to have significantly increased their attendance. If you want to be at the forefront of the re-imagination of the industry, you need to have a dedicated and high-profile space on GlobalShop’s portion of the 400,000-square-foot show floor at RetailX, which is divided into easy-to-navigate neighborhoods for an easier, more intuitive attendee experience.

How Does GlobalShop at RetailX Affect Me As An Exhibitor?

With the blurring of the lines of digital and physical stores, it’s never been more important to get your products and ideas into the hands of multiple channels in retail. While brick-and-mortar retail still dominates (91% of total retail sales in 2017), e-commerce is driving new in-store formats to accommodate for the on-the-go shopper, like BOPIS (Buy Online, Pick Up In Store). Retailers are radically altering their infrastructure, and the form and function of their businesses. RetailX creates an environment where retailers of all types can see the “big picture” of today’s retail realities—with the strong, consistent core you’ve come to know GlobalShop as over the past quarter century.
