business news in context, analysis with attitude

One of the things that I’m most excited about in the new year is the fact that I’m going to be attend the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas for the first time - I’m going to be there to start a new series of “Retail Tomorrow” podcasts.

This podcast series is an outgrowth of the Retail Tomorrow initiative created by the Global Market Development Center (GMDC), creating a community of innovators to promote collaboration among retailers, brands, technology leaders, and universities. GMDC has done “immersion” conferences in Silicon Valley, Toronto, Seattle and New York, with upcoming events scheduled for Los Angeles and Boston - at which people can do a deep dive into not just best practices, but next practices … developing an ecosystem that will drive the retail industry into the realities and possibilities of tomorrow. And these podcasts are designed to push the conversation forward.

So, I’ll be at CES doing the podcast, and if you’re also going to be there, I hope you’ll drop me a note. It’s a humongous show, but maybe we can find a way to meet for a drink at some point … to celebrate the new year and new business adventures.
