the event suite

Connect with us live and in-person

We regularly host events at our offices in Atlanta, GA and Los Angeles, CA, and virtually, as well as at various industry trade events.  Join us to be inspired and connected with others paving the way for the future of retail.




Trade Shows. Conferences. Marketplaces. Pop Up Events.

To see that retail has a diversity problem, all you have to do is go to a trade show or other industry event and look around.  It's blatantly obvious.  But we are changing that!  We're hosting events within these events to give awareness and exposure to you, as well as a way to increase diversity in these spaces. We're also hosting our own events to further inspire and reassure you that there's a place for you in retail to thrive. 

we curate these spaces just for you.

The Future of Retail Summer Camp

We were so excited to welcome minority high school students interested in the fashion and retail industries to this 5-day summer camp where students got a behind-the-scenes look at the retail industry and explore what the future of it may look like through creating their own store concept!  If your child, or a child you love, has ever shown interest in fashion, making their own products, running their own brick and mortar or e-commerce store, or anything related to the retail industry, we would love to help them explore those interests during our next camp!
