National Retail Federation(NRF), a retail trade association in US, has announced that its annual exposition and conference will be held in-person at Jacob Javits Convention Centre in New York City from June 6-8, 2021. In addition, NRF will also host a virtual event from January 12-14, 19 and 21-22, 2021. Both events will feature the theme “Forward Together.”
“The health and safety of our team, industry partners and global attendees is our number one priority. Given the understandable concerns among all of our stakeholders regarding the availability and effectiveness of treatments or a vaccine for the coronavirus, we have concluded it is not feasible to maintain our original schedule of an in-person January 2021 trade show, and have decided to reimagine the NRF 2021 annual meeting and convention,” NRF president and CEO Matthew Shay, said in a press release.
