Wow, what a week for Omni Talk (subscribe here) — first, the Robin Report and now Retail Dive just picked up The good, the bad and the ugly of NRF’s Big Show 2018.
While the conference showcased plenty of “cool tech,” the show overall “felt stuck in a time warp” and needs to innovate faster, writes Christopher Walton.
If you don’t already, I also highly recommend subscribing to Retail Dive
