When the innovators behind the hottest new conference event for retail, SHOPTALK, invited DynamicAction to take part in its inaugural show at the fabulous ARIA Resort & Casino Las Vegas on May 15-18, we did not think twice. The “nextgen commerce event” is amongst the top five U.S. retail and e-commerce conferences (and it hasn’t even happened yet!). Over 2750 executives, disruptors, practitioners and pioneers in retail will attend this three-day event. More than 160 speakers, including executives from brands like Abercrombie & Fitch, Adidas, Cole Haan, Best Buy, Home Depot, Jet.com, Foot Locker, Birchbox, Amazon, Kohl’s, Sephora, Luxottica, Sur La Table, Macy’s, Zappos, Ulta, Target and Under Armour, are confirmed to lead session keynotes and power panels on disruptive retail innovation topics.
In addition to exhibiting in SHOPTALK’s game-changing Expo Hall, we were thrilled to have our CEO & Co-founder, John Squire invited to join such an impressive roster of speakers. Squire will take the stage with Tim Tuttle, Founder & CEO at MindMeld, Andy Narayanan, Head of Visual Intelligence, Sentient Technologies, and Brent Franson, CEO at Euclid Analytics to discuss The Future of Artificial Intelligence in Retail on Tuesday, May 17th at 1:40PM.
There could not be a more exciting or qualified moderator to guide this intriguing discussion surrounding predictions for retail’s next big disruptors than Artificial Intelligence pioneer, expert & entrepreneur, Dr. Barney Pell. Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer of Moon Express, Dr. Pell’s long list of professional achievements and contributions to modern innovation include putting the first AI systems into space, supporting the Mars Exploration Rovers and architecting the first intelligent agent to fly and control a spacecraft. Dr. Pell and the panel will lead the audience on a journey through their predictions for retail’s future technology platforms for retailers, what will be rendered obsolete and where automation systems will prevail. As true retail innovation enthusiasts, we look forward to the electric discussion sparked on the advances that will change the face of retail business as we know it.
