About the Forum

As the longest-running event of its kind in the industry, the design:retail Forum covers topics and discussions of the most pressing issues among thought leaders in the retail design community.

The event brings together the cream of the crop from the retail design industry, including store design, architecture and visual merchandising retail executives as well as design/architecture firm principals. Attendees* include the high-profile members of design:retail’s Editorial Advisory Board (See the full list of Advisors), in addition to invited guests, registered attendees, our sponsors and our magazine staff.
