Nov '09
More than 17,500 retail executives and 600 exhibitors from around the world will convene at the National Retail Federation's 99th Annual Convention & EXPO, the world's largest retail educational forum and trade show.

NRF offers retailers free passes to its EXPO Hall, a must-see area with more than 600 vendors showcasing products, technologies and services for retailers of all sizes. Free retailer passes also include entry to the NRF DESiGN STUDiO, which showcases the latest in store planning and design. Retailers and store design professionals can utilize the Free pass on Monday and Tuesday, January 11-12 during regular show hours. A retailer by our definition is someone who sells to consumers via storefront, catalogue, TV or online. If you sell products or services to a retail company, we consider that business to business. And, individuals selling business to business are NOT considered retail.

EXPO Floor Hours: Monday, January 11, 9:00 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. and Tuesday, January 12, 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

Convention Days: Sunday, January 10 – Wednesday, January 13, 2010

Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. 655 West 34th Street, New York City
