eTail Networking Sessions

On top of the different speaker discussions, eTail Palm Springs also offers unique experiences. Attendees can participate in focused discussion groups that include the “Women in Retail” panel, the exclusive “C Suite Retreat” boardroom and “Cocktails & Conversations” to chat with other retailers within a specific revenue group, according to the company. 

“Women in (R)eTail is back this year and is one of our most popular events,” Schoenstein notes. “We are also bringing back our Retailer only C-Suite Retreat for our most senior level executives. And, of course, eTail wouldn’t be eTail without our famous parties, so we have plenty of those planned throughout the event.”

These are all structured to foster deep connections and off-the-record conversations with peers, in addition to “Cheers with Peers” beverage tastings, “Retailer Hang Outs” and evening receptions.

“For 25 years, eTail has brought the retail community together to share ideas and network,” Schoenstein says. “This is an event that retailers trust to bring them the information they need to do their jobs better. The sessions are designed to bring attendees practical takeaways that they can apply as soon as they return to the office.”
