Retail Innovation Conference and Expo 2022 trade show booth rentals and custom exhibits

Mar 10, 2022

Retail leaders, executives, and experts are meeting up this May for the 2022 edition of the Retail Innovation Conference and Expo (RICE22) in Chicago, Illinois. Over three days, attendees will listen to compelling keynote presentations, attend informative breakout sessions, collaborate during workshops, and browse the tradeshow floor. 

Their focus? 

Discovering how top brands use collaboration and innovation to capitalize on disruptive tech and trends. And learning how to use omnichannel customer journeys to bring their brands to the next level. 

Exhibitors will display products, services and innovations that fall into two sections: 

  1. Digital (IRCE) – spanning the retail process, from marketing to delivery; and 
  2. Physical (Design:Retail) – covering everything a store needs to stand out from design theory to new store formats and even tech integration.   

RICE22’s exhibition floor promises to be a vibrant, community-driven space featuring the latest tech, engaging interactions, and lots of network opportunities. Will your company be there?

    2. We highly recommend looking into local tradeshow exhibit rentals for the upcoming RICE22 show.
  2. Create an itinerary: 
    1. Research the event and pick the networking and social events, educational sessions, and other activities you want to attend. 
    2. This way, you and your team will know when you’ll be at the booth.
  3. Design a memorable in-booth experience: 
    1. No matter the size, your booth should tell a seamless brand story. 
    2. Pro Tip: include an interactive experience for your booth visitors.
