About Retail Live! Austin 2017
Retail Live! is similar to many regional networking events; there is an exhibit part of the program as well as a reception. The key difference is that ONLY retailers are allowed to have an exhibit at the Retail Live! trade show other than a few VIP sponsors. This allows the brokers, landlords, developers, and other related industry professionals who attend the program to present their projects or services to only these retailers. The reason this is important is that it drives the attendance; when people know they are getting in front of hundreds of retailers, they attend. In less than a day, participants get a chance to network directly with retailers actively expanding in Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Louisiana, New Mexico, Mississippi, and Arkansas. In many ways, this is the opposite of a typical industry event; it is laid back, attire is casual, meetings are impromptu, and the ambiance is festive.

What To Expect
At registration, each registrant receives a Retail Live! Trade Book with each participating retailer’s site specifications, areas of expansion in the Southwest and Gulf South regions, and real estate contact information (and broker when applicable). This is where it benefits the retailers and their real estate partners- they get a chance to get their contact information out together with their client’s site criteria to hundreds of people in less than a full day’s work. It is much more productive than cold calling and email blasts, or 30 minute meeting blocks. Such is the case at more traditional event programs where you can only fit in 20 meetings, assuming your schedule is completely full. At Retail Live!, registrants get the chance to speak to at least 5 times that amount at a 3 or 4 hour trade show. The trade show is immediately followed by a reception with great food, cocktails and Live! entertainment for additional opportunities to network with all the retailers and industry professionals.
Register early; space is limited
Retail Live! is a great excuse for people to visit Austin, network with people from all over the Southwest and Gulf South region with minimal time commitment, and experience Live! entertainment. And who isn’t looking for an excuse to come to Austin? We look forward to seeing you at Retail Live Austin! Check out the Retail Live Austin 2016 Retailers and Sponsors below!
