The Retail CEO Forum is an invite-only event available to CEOs of retail companies and consumer product manufacturer companies. 
To qualify as a retail attendee, an individual attendee must be an employee of a retail company (not engaged as a consultant, contractor, or agent thereof). A retail company is defined by RILA as a company whose core business is selling its inventory of consumer products directly to end consumers.
To qualify as a consumer product manufacturer attendee, an individual must be an employee of a consumer product manufacturer (not engaged as a consultant, contractor, or agent thereof). A consumer product manufacturer is defined by RILA as a company whose core business is selling consumer products that it manufactures to sell to end consumers or for resale to retailers to sell to end consumers. Companies that sell products to retailers for use in the business (e.g. security cameras, POS systems, or other products intended for use in the store, DC, HQ, or other locations) do not qualify as consumer product manufacturers for RILA purposes.
Service providers are the companies that provide goods or services to the retail industry for use by the company, their stores, or their distribution centers. Individuals from service supplier companies must contract (as either an exhibitor, sponsor, or attend only participant) in order to attend a RILA Event.
