Retailers are relying on RILA more than ever to influence public and private sector actions, to provide forums and networks for retailers to share challenges and solutions, and to deliver crucial information on a wide range of issues affecting the industry. Coming together in January reinforces these relationships and allows new connections to be built among the many CEOs engaged in RILA’s activities.
