Shop.org will welcome some of the industry’s most innovative thought leaders at its Annual Summit, kicking off in Chicago, September 30 – October 2.

The event will host more than 4,000 retail, e-commerce and multichannel executives, and will take place at the Lakeside Center at McCormick Place. The Summit brings together industry experts, retailers and their business partners to network, discuss and learn about top trends in digital retailing.

Tory Burch Chief Marketing Officer Miki Berardelli and Senior Vice President Matt Marcotte will take the stage on the first full day of the Summit and Walgreens President and Chief Executive Officer Gregory Wasson and the company’s President of E-commerce Sona Chawla will keynote the second day.

“We are thrilled to have the opportunity to welcome so many digital retail visionaries to the Shop.org Summit stage,” said Shop.org Executive Director Vicki Cantrell.  “These experienced keynote speakers will give our Summit audience invaluable knowledge through insight on the ever-changing world of e-commerce and multichannel retail.”

During their session, Berardelli and Marcotte will discuss the immense growth of the luxury fashion brand and the digital strategies that have played an essential role in connecting the retail company with its customers around the world, online and in stores. “Digital Journey of Growing a Global Brand” will take place Tuesday, October 1 at 8:15 a.m.

Wasson will take the stage Wednesday, October 2 at 8:30 a.m. for the “Walgreens: Developing Digital DNA” keynote session. Chawla will join Wasson to discuss the retailer’s journey in becoming a mobile leader in the industry and the importance of omnichannel integration when evolving a major brand.
