Jon Bibo attended the Global Retailing Conference (GRC) in Tucson, AZ, for the 5th consecutive year and shares his thoughts on this exciting conference that addresses hot topics and the latest strategies in the world of retail.
The GRC is one of my favorite and most thought-provoking Conferences each year. The GRC coordinates with the Terry Lundgren Center for Retailing at the University of Arizona—which is on the cutting edge of practical, real-world retail training.
This year, 17 top executives shared their strategies, insights, and philosophies for success. Each GRC session lasts just 45 minutes (including a Q&A period), so attendees receive just the right amount of information to stimulate new ideas. The Conference lasts just 1.5 days, so plenty of high-quality content is packed into a very short amount of time. I can’t imagine another event where so much expertise is shared in such a short amount of time that is so incredibly relevant for retailers of all types (especially college stores).
