“Jamie Dimon is a visionary leader whose expertise and tenacious skills have been recognized throughout his career,” NRF President and CEO Matthew Shay said. “Jamie’s insights and expertise in the economy and fiscal policy are widely sought after. He understands the significant and complex impact of the global pandemic on the private-sector community, and the measures that must be taken for businesses and the consumer to emerge stronger and even more resilient.”
Dimon will be the opening Main Stage speaker on Wednesday, January 13, the second day of the six-day conference. His intimate fireside chat with Shay will cover the economic crisis caused by the global pandemic, how the public and private sector can address racial inequality in the United States, and the health of U.S. and global consumers in 2021 and beyond.
In addition to Dimon, a number of retail industry leaders are scheduled to appear at the conference, including Indra Nooyi, former Chairman and CEO of PepsiCo; Judith McKenna, President and CEO of Walmart International; Marvin Ellison, President and CEO of Lowe's Companies Inc.; and Dave Kimbell, President of Ulta Beauty, among others.
An estimated 25,000 industry professionals are expected to attend Retail’s Big Show, which is NRF’s 110th annual convention and will be held January 12–14, 19 and 21–22, 2021.
