NRF is coming up quickly, and I can’t wait to head to NYC with Tyler Smith and team for another epic event. It’s all about catching up with customers and friends, and learning from leading retailers. The key to managing NRF like a boss is taking advantage of all the activities!

The Legion team has meticulously planned a bevy of activities and can’t wait to connect with new faces and reunite with friends and customers at Retail’s Big Show. Are you ready to unleash the potential of intelligent automation? Visit our booth #6051 to explore Legion’s intelligently automated, employee-centric WFM.

  • 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 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.
