Future Stores Miami 2022


JW Marriott Marquis Miami


“Future Stores has afforded me the opportunity to connect with peers, inside and outside of my sector, to learn about the challenges facing all of us as it relates to the Associate and Customer Experience. I now have new partners to benchmark with and freely share ideas with that will help me and my teams deliver on the experience that people want and deserve. Some of the speakers on innovation have really pushed my thinking on the right technology in the store that truly enhances the customers experience, how they interact with product, and how they make purchase decisions. Their ability to move and organize through innovation will help us in our journey to build a truly boundryless retail experience.”

Michael Millonzi, SVP, Retail, Cornerstone Brands

“Awesome conference. Truly enjoyed the ability to network with so many amazing professionals. Can’t wait for next year.”

Georgia Starkey, Account Executive, Natural Insight

“Our team has gotten a lot of value from Future Stores. The speakers have shared some excellent insight and the relaxed, small group leads to great conversations.”

James Morse, Omnichannel Optimization Manager, Belk

“I wanted to write and share with you what a great job you and the team have done on this event and also compliment the overall activities and sponsorship. I have done these for many years and sometimes am frustrated with being a sponsor but not having access to the attendees unless I run up and push a card to them. The way the breaks and food are laid out make this a comfortable and friendly environment where people can engage in a conversation and discuss technology and strategies.
My compliments to the team for a great event and turn out, I look forward to seeing everyone next year.”

Gary Gillman, Mid Atlantic Area Manager, Hughes Network Systems
