NRF Retail's Big Show 2016 Recap

Store tour at the newly opened Westfield World Trade Center

We have reserved an exclusive store tour for our group at the famous Westfield World Trade Center  that opened in New York 16th of August 2016. This shopping center replaces the Mall at the World Trade Center, which was destroyed during the September 11th attacks.

The Westfield World Trade Center is more than just a retail destination. This mall has brought together trade and culture and given new life to an expanding community wrapped in magnificent architecture. Here we will have a guided tour and gain insight in how they work with concepts, stores and digitalization.

"Norwegian commerce faces major restructuring, and NRF Big Show provides a unique opportunity to learn from the best in a world where commerce is increasingly global, and the boundaries between physical commerce and e-commerce are erased. To attend the Big Show is therefore valuable in our efforts to give our members the best member service."

Vibeke Hammer Madsen, CEO, Virke

"NRF Retail's Big Show gives me insights into how our counterparts in the US, the National Retail Federation, works as a membership organization and an opportunity for us to establish international contacts and discuss the issues we work with. The show additionally offers the absolute latest update of what affect commerce and how to build successful companies in the future which makes the show one of the highlights of the year."
