The Independent Retailer Conference is a “pop-up” interactive conference within a trade show experience dedicated to the unique lifestyle and responsibilities of indie store owners, with a focus on delivering in-store and e-commerce operational insight and expertise that can help independent merchants succeed in their retail goals. Colocated with ASD MarketWeek, the event is designed to deliver indie-style expertise in the areas of store operations, marketing, publicity, merchandising and more. [ASD Market Week is a comprehensive B2B trade show that brings a wide variety of retail merchandise together in one efficient shopping experience. Nearly 45,000 buyers from over 90 countries visit ASD Market Week each year.]
Founded by industry veterans Nicole Leinbach Reyhle of Retail Minded and Kerry Bannigan of Nolcha Events, the Independent Retailer Conference offers independent retailers the chance to engage, learn, and connect with industry leaders while also getting inspired from retail experts, service providers and like-minded retailers from across the nation.
