The Retail Experience 2022

Demonstrating retail’s impact to policymakers
Interactive, educational showcase for Capitol Hill
July 28, 2022
9:00 AM – 1:00 PM

Retail employs more Americans than any other industry. It is the backbone of the U.S. economy, continually changing to meet the needs of customers and communities. It is critical that decision-makers in Washington, D.C., understand our impact, innovations and how retail powers the economy in the states and districts they represent.

Taking place at the 2022 Retail Advocates Summit, The Retail Experience is an interactive, educational showcase designed to demonstrate the depth and breadth of our industry to policymakers.

Technology demonstration

The Retail Experience will feature:

  • Opportunities for retailers to directly connect with leading lawmakers and their staff to share retail’s story
  • Demonstrations of retail’s tech transformation with retail technology innovators
  • Immersive exhibition of retail’s impact and contributions to workforce development and job creation
  • Displays from Main Street retailers and NRF industry partners
  • NRF 2023: Retail’s Big Show preview
  • Remarks from members of Congress and presentations of Hero of Main Street and Champion of Main Street awards to lawmakers who support retail

Why Attend?

The Retail Experience is retailers’ opportunity to show Capitol Hill who we are as an industry. As the saying goes, “If you’re not at the table, you’re on the menu.” We need retailers of all shapes and sizes to be in the room with policymakers who have the power to affect your business.
