NRF 2020: How to make the most of your experience in NYC


It’s 2020! Which means we’ve made it through the busiest part of the retail season. You’re probably thinking about what’s up first in the new year. If it’s NRF 2020: Retail’s Big Show next week in New York City, you’re in luck. Because we know you’re knee-deep in post-holiday wrap-up, we’ve curated some tips on how to plan for NRF.

But first, make sure to schedule some time with us while you’re there. We’re highlighting Cash Process Automation, which can make your cash work for you. It’s a complete end-to-end, front-of-store-to-the-back solution built for retailers to see beyond their pain points to achieve the most efficient cash management processes.

Here are a few of our insider tips and highlights for the week.

Scope out content and exhibitors in advance
There’s a lot to take in at NRF. With 400 speakers and 175+ sessions of content to choose from, it can be overwhelming. In case you missed it, take a look at our blog highlighting some important content and sessions.

On the exhibit floor, there will be 100+ exhibitor-led sessions. Plan your schedule by scoping out where the exhibitors you want to meet with are located. Balance Innovations is Booth #4272.

Schedule meetings in advance to make sure you fit us into your agenda.

Take advantage of hosted networking opportunities
NRF will host an Opening Party for all attendees on Saturday, Jan. 11 at the Marriott Marquis. This is a good opportunity to meet new faces in the industry or connect with old colleagues.

Carry a notebook or get a note taking app
You’ll be meeting a lot of people, attending a large number of sessions and visiting numerous booths. Take some simple notes to help you recall conversations and next steps by bringing a notebook or downloading a quick app to help keep track.

See BeyondEnjoy the city
Don’t miss the opportunity to relax and have some fun outside of the conference. Take in some of the most popular tourist sites such as one of these 25 museums or visit the new, nearby Hudson Yards neighborhood.
