Registration Rates

Save when you register by the early bird deadline

After being apart for more than a year, RILA believes it is more important than ever for our industry to come together this August. To help with our mission of convening the retail supply chain community, RILA is forgoing our traditional group rates, and giving everyone an even lower individual rate. We hope this will help you attend LINK2021. In addition, register now and you can attend LINK2022 for just $200 more, when you purchase both conference years together!

Registration Eligibility

RETAILERS
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.

CONSUMER PRODUCT MANUFACTURERS
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
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 or sponsor) in order to attend a RILA Event.

Registration Cancellation Policy

RILA understands that 2020 and 2021 have been unprecedentedly challenging for the retail industry. We are eager to see all of our retailers and solution providers in person but want everyone to feel confident in their decisions to register for the event. As a result, we have modified our transfer and cancellation policies for this conference.
 
All refund requests must be in writing. Send us an email at Amanda.Shapiro@rila.org to request a refund. Cancellation requests received will be subject to the following deadlines:
  • Cancellation requests received by Friday, July 30, 11:59pm E.T. (18 days before the conference) will receive a full refund
  • Cancellation requests received between Saturday, July 31, and Friday, August 13, 11:59 pm E.T. (4 days before the conference) will receive a full refund, less a $150 administrative fee.
  • After August 13, registrations will not be refunded but may be transferred to another employee of your company until the first day of the conference.
You can transfer your registration online. Visit the conference registration portal and log-in with your RILA.org account. Once you are logged-in, you should see "Manage Registration". From there, you may request a cancellation or transfer your registration to anyone from your company. Email annie.buckalew@rila.org for help.
 
Attendees who purchase the discounted LINK21/22 package are subject to different refund and cancellation policies depending on their refund request. If you request a refund for the LINK2022 portion of your registration but plan to attend LINK2021, you will be refunded the difference between the current LINK2021 individual rate and the package rate you paid. If you wish to cancel the LINK2021 portion of your package, the package price will be refunded subject to the dates above, and you will no longer be registered for LINK2021 or LINK2022. You may then register separately for LINK2022 if you choose to attend.
 
As always, please contact RILA should you wish to discuss any extenuating circumstances that may prevent your attendance at the conference.
