Nashville – Retail's top industry analysts will join forces with C-level retail executives and technology vendors at the Retail Orphan Initiative's SuperSaturday event in New York on Jan. 12, one day before the opening of the National Retail Federation’s annual convention. Admission to retailers is free, and all proceeds from the vendor sponsorships go to help the Retail Orphan Initiative, Retailroi.org. Retailers can register for SuperSaturday here.
The fast-paced SuperSaturday event, which will be held at the PwC auditorium, is designed to provide attendees with an in-depth look at the latest data and trends in the retail industry before they hit the show floor at NRF. The 2013 edition of SuperSaturday will focus heavily on topics such as mobile, social media, and the convergence of marketing and technology in retail and consumer goods.
"In just a few years, SuperSaturday has become one of the 'must-attend' events for retailers at NRF. It offers unparalleled insight into the retail technology trends and strategies that are shaping the future of retail, and it unites the retail industry to provide relief to the neediest and vulnerable children in the world," said Greg Buzek, founder of IHL Group and donor trustee for RetailROI.
Since its founding four years ago, the Retail Orphan Initiative has helped over 110,000 orphaned and vulnerable children through education, computers, food and medical care, funded primarily through SuperSaturday. Over 94% of the funds have been used in direct support of charities that provide hands-on relief around the world for orphan care, adoption relief, foster care support, and rescue of children from human trafficking.
