Shoptalk 2022, hosted at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center in Las Vegas, brought together an unprecedented number of retailers, strategic partners and vendors ready to discuss the ever-changing retail landscape. As the leading U.S. event for retail and e-commerce, attendance records at this year’s show far surpassed those from 2019, with nearly 10,000 registered attendees. The energy was palpable!
Armed with a cross-functional team, Shipt activated in an impactful way to bring Shipt’s unique, differentiated offerings to life.
The Shipt booth was the place at the conference! The company fashioned an oversized Vegas-style plinko board, giant motorized shopping cart called the Shopper Chopper, comfortable lounge seating and refreshments to host our retail and brand partners, members of the media and those interested in learning more about Shipt.
