The Most Comprehensive Experience in the Retail Industry

For more than 25 years GlobalShop has served as the retail industry’s largest design and merchandising trade show. In 2019, we’re expanding the show experience by bringing together GlobalShop, RFID Journal LIVE! Retail as well as IRCE, (Internet Retailer Conference and Exhibition) under the name RetailX. The three co-located shows will retain their independence and identities, yet symbiotically coexist to provide you with all the tools you need to stay ahead of the competition.
