RLC has put together a significant advisory board, with big hitters like Saks Fifth Avenue, Landmark Group, and IKEA executives confirmed, meaning that attendees will be hearing about the most pressing retail sector issues. The subject matter goes well beyond sales -what one might expect from a retail-focused conference- with topics including corporate culture and branding, in addition to discussions on human capital (like strategizing staff engagement and retention). Attendees will also have an opportunity to network throughout the two-day conference.
