Our first Retail Live event was in Chicago, we were skeptical, but willing to try it.  We think it was great, got to meet with a lot of people face to face - definitely got a lot of deals started

It was the first event of its type that I could actually say that I had a good time. Usually we are over charged and under served at these types of events. This was valuable and kinda fun!

Retail live was a great combination of productivity and networking, in a fun and Entertaining environment. I thought it was just the right length of time and it was great to be in an open environment, rather than scheduled meetings all the time. We look forward to being a sponsor next year again.

It was a great event and I was glad to be invited and can't wait for next year's Retail Live!

Jason Anderton
Senior Real Estate Manager
Sally Beauty Holdings, Inc.

I wasn’t really sure what to expect, but Paul and I certainly thought it was worthwhile. The casual/relaxed atmosphere and no scheduled meetings created good organic discussions and conversation. Talk as little or as long as you like... great ideas are created this way. I'll be there next year.

Retail Live Austin was a great experience. It was the perfect amount of time with a focus on informal networking with retailers. The post-conference dinner and concert was a blast and a great way to end a successful afternoon talking shop.

I want to thank you for putting on the Retail Live event last week, I went with my client Jody Detmore (Spec's) and we both found it very productive. I really liked the dinner and music afterward, I am listening to Bob Schneider on Spotify now.

Always good for us to get in front of brokers, landlords, and sellers so we can continue to grow our brand and get with the people who are doing deals. Retail Live! Provided the opportunity we don’t get at other programs in a relaxed, first class environment.

Fantastic turnout, will come back every year, met with folks from all over the state. Very impressed, loved the facility and the event.

The forum was casual, the turnout was great, and the event was buttoned up. I would suggest you attend if your schedule permits for the retailer networking and landlord relationships.
