The theme of this year’s Retail East Summit is Innovation from the Inside Out. As more and more brands add the title Chief Experience Officer (CXO) to their C-Suite it begs the questions “Where does the customer experience begin?” and “Who is responsible for delivering a great customer experience?”. Momentum’s Retail East Summit will address these questions and several others that arise in the course of building a seamless and satisfying customer experience.

Momentum’s Retail East Summit is open to Retail and CPG Brand Executives who have responsibility for strategy, finance, branding, marketing, merchandising, digital, analytics, eCommerce, customer experience, big data and omnichannel.
