Showcasing the future of retail at Retail’s BIG Show

BT’s experts exhibit the latest in retail technologies during NRF 2016

Jan. 17-19 saw thousands of attendees descend upon the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in NYC for a look at the latest and greatest in the world of retail technology. Each year, Retail’s BIG Show offers unparalleled education and collegial networking on the massive show floor full of revolutionary technologies and solutions. With so many organization leaders in attendance, this annual show provides an opportunity for companies like BT to showcase their newest offerings for retailers each year.

For this year’s show, we had several of our best and brightest at booth #1143: Alison Wiltshire, Global Propositions Director, Retailing & Consumer Engagement; Nick Catero, Sales and Business Development Manager – Industry Propositions; and Jeremy Griggs, Head of Industry Propositions & Growth Incubator. Throughout the event, these brilliant experts conducted numerous interviews with media, analysts, customers and partners, while also making time to give tours of our revolutionary Alexander Black space in the newly opened CEC.

Tours both at the booth and in Alexander Black involved demos of many innovations we are working to power for the modern retailer, including triggered digital signage & in-store analytics, the ‘Intelligent Fitting Room’ – using RFID technology, using RFID for Inventory Management and Tablet triggered digital display. For more details on many of these technologies, you can check out our Alexander Black virtual tour.

The rate of change in retail has never moved at such a fast pace, and will likely never slow down again. So, thanks to all who helped make our presence at NRF 2016 possible and be sure to visit the retail section of our website for the latest developments from BT.
