NRF 2023

As I begin thinking about what NRF ’23 will look like, I can’t help but think back on my many (let’s not discuss exactly how many) years of attending this incredible event. From my rookie year freezing to death to a seasoned exhibitor who knows all the ins and outs of making this show successful. It all comes down to the people. It’s the people who build your NRF experience that is always better than the one before. Taking advantage of all of the many activities is the key to success!

NRF 2023 is kicking off the new year with a long list of breakthroughs, and we are pulling out all the stops to showcase our breakthroughs in intelligent automation powered by Legion WFM. We can’t wait to connect with new faces and reunite with friends and customers at Retail’s Big Show as we all gather to learn, inspire, and move into a year full of breakthroughs.

Let’s get back to the activities that will help you maximize the upcoming NRF show and make the connections that will guide your experience. Legion is excited to offer entertaining and educational opportunities and solve much-needed food and beverage needs.

We hope you will stop by the Legion booth #6327 at NRF 2023, kicking off January 14th-17th, for a mix of work and play!

Sunday, January 15th – International Day

  • Begin your day with your favorite hot caffeinated beverage and get a demo to see how to make your demand forecasting accuracy soar to new heights. We’re backing up our offering with a free 60-day pilot offer just for you!
  • See the latest workforce management technology and how intelligent automation powered by Legion WFM can transform your retail operations.

  • Of course, how can we forget the NRF playoffs going on? We didn’t! Join Legion and Retail Zipline for our reTAILGATE to watch the afternoon games. As with any good reTAILGATE, we’ll have plenty of cold beverages and great food. Have you heard of Cathy Hotka’s Retail Insiders Party? It’s so exclusive that the location is a secret until right before the event. It’s, of course, the hottest game in town, and our very own Robert Means and Michael Spataro will be there to chat about all things retail. To score an invitation, drop Cathy a note here.
