Retail Supply Chain Conference.

   The right people.
  The best format.
  The greatest opportunities. 

Discover the 2017 Retail Supply Chain Conference, the best venue for suppliers to the comprehensive retail supply chain community, including logistics, omni-channel, analytics, distribution, transportation, ports and technology providers. Only at RILA can your company reach the right people and build the strongest relationships… and grow your bottom line.


With decades of success, RILA's Retail Supply Chain Conference reaches across all components of retail supply chain, connects the industry, and enables evolution and innovation. Every year, RILA draws top executives from the best U.S. retailers ready to do business. They are senior-level executives and key decision-makers who are looking to connect with current partners and develop new business relationships. 


RILA's Retail Supply Chain Conference is back once again with some exciting tweaks to the exhibitor and sponsor experience.

RILA is excited to welcome back our HUBs.  These HUB areas feature areas dedicated to impromptu conversations and casual meeting spaces positioned around kiosks showcasing the latest from International Logistics, Technology, Omni-channel, Transportation, Analytics, and Distribution service and solution providers.

We are just as happy to announce that for the 2017 event all exhibitors will have access to the Exhibit Hall for demos and small meetings during the afternoons on Monday and Tuesday.  There will be security staffed at the main entrance to the exhibit hall and all we ask is that you greet your properly badged retail guest at the entrance, escort them back to your booth and then return them to the entrance at the conclusion of your meeting.  Retailers will not be permitted to walk in the exhibit hall unaccompanied so you meeting them is critical to the success of your meeting or demo.  Our goal here is to help keep you and your customers or future customers in the conference part of the Gaylord to help keep everyone engaged before, during, and after your meetings. More details on how to take advantage of this will be announced soon.


Position your brand front and center for all the retail executives in attendance to see.  Opportunities begin as low as $10,000 and exhibit space is available with at all levels.  Feel free to review our 2017 Sponsorship Opportunities menu and contact Tripp Taylor if you have any questions on a specific opportunity.
