Sponsor an NRF Dinner

NRF hosts regional social dinners exclusively for corporate retailers to come together, connect, grow their community and learn from each other in a personal setting at a top local restaurant.

Target audiences include retailers — managers, directors and above — in digital, ecommerce, innovation, marketing, supply chain, operations, sustainability, ESG, cybersecurity, technology, merchandising/planning, research/analytics and legal roles.

NRF Dinners are a unique opportunity to meet retailers in an informal, one-on-one setting. Email Tami Sakell for more information.
