Conference Crawl

 When this many retailers, strategic planners, marketers, technologists, and a few robots are swarming the Jacob Javits Convention Center, it can mean only one thing — NRF 2019: Retail’s Big Show has arrived. Check out some of the best moments from Day 2.

Hubert Joly, CEO and Chairman of Best Buy, highlighted the BOPIS success story.


Here’s Target’s CEO Brian Cornell on the continued success of brick and mortar in a digital world.


He was talking to a packed house.


Cornell also reaffirmed that consumers must always be top of mind.


Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen is similarly customer-driven.


And survey numbers bear that out.


McMullen also threw down the mantle against a few tech giants.


How are you going to help those customers?’s Head of Robotics research has some ideas.


Kara Swisher dropped some knowledge.


And her podcasting partner-in-crime, Scott Galloway predicted the future (well, 2019 at least).


There were robots...


...Bloody Marys...


...and food trucks.


As well as Mark Ronson, apparently.


And don’t miss our CEO Greg Alvo’s talk tomorrow.
