NRF President and CEO: Why the Big Show will go on

“While the recent surge in the omicron variant is very concerning, NRF continues working with local, state and federal health officials to ensure that we not only meet but greatly exceed safety guidelines and COVID-19 protocols at NRF 2022: Retail’s Big Show at the Javits Center in New York City, Jan. 16-18,” writes NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay on LinkedIn.

NRF also announced enhancements to existing health and safety protocols, which require proof of vaccination and indoor mask-wearing to attend the event.
