Global Retailing Ideas Summit 2023

In the spring of 2023, the Global Retailing Ideas Summit drew some of the biggest names in retailing to Tucson, Arizona — guests like Tory Burch, Tommy Hilfiger, Tony Hsieh, Vera Wang and more — to talk innovation, challenges and bold new ideas in retailing. This industry is being transformed at lightning speed, and the GR Ideas Summit presented the most sought out and innovative retailers shaping the industry today.  Students connected face-to-face with these retailing icons who share their amazing insights on trends, innovation and strategies to capture and hold on to customers and market share. For aspiring businesses, service providers and retailing professionals, this event offered an unequaled opportunity to connect with retailing giants and visionaries. At the same time, attendees got the inside scoop on the latest academic research plus industry leaders' thoughts on what's next and why it matters.

If you're engaged in retail today in any role, if you're building a consumer-oriented business, or if you offer professional services to the retailing industry, you owe it to yourself and your organization to be a part of the GR Ideas Summit.
