Gearing up for NRF Big Show 2016

Hold on to your hats – we’re here for the 2016 NRF Big Show in New York City. The TimeTrade team is geared up, and ready to go in the Big Apple for the retail industry’s biggest annual show, and we’re looking forward to what’s sure to be an eventful week.

This week, we’re excited to share our State of Retail 2016 report, ahead of all the show action. TimeTrade recently surveyed more than 5,000 consumers and 100 senior level retail executives about their shopping behaviors and perceptions. The results paint an interesting picture for the future of brick-and-mortar retail: the demand for in-store shopping remains strong, but rising expectations mean retailers must deliver a more personalized “concierge” experience to stay competitive. Additionally, results from the two surveys indicate a possible disconnect for the coming year between customer perceptions and expectations and retailers’ focus.

You can check out the full report here, and our experts will also be on hand throughout the show to discuss the findings and what they mean for the future of retail. A visit to our booth, number 2235, means you’ll also get to meet our very own TimeTrade butler, who will be available throughout the show to demonstrate the meaning of a true “concierge” experience.

What: NRF 2016 – Retail’s BIG Show – at the Jacob K. Javits Center in NYC

The coming year is set to be an exciting one for the retail industry! We hope you’ll stop by our booth next week to chat about the State of Retail 2016, the growth of the “on-demand economy” and what consumer trends we can expect to see in the months to come.
