I wanted to thank you personally for the warmth displayed by your staff throughout the event and congratulate you for its impeccable organization. Your team of collaborators has great professional ability, and this allowed us to feel completely at home during the event. The summit allowed us to get acquainted with the experience and perspective on first class Latin American executives, which was extremely helpful for us. The attending companies were very courteous and attentive during the meetings and we felt that we were interacting with friends rather than with potential clients. All in all... A great success. I hope you continue along this path. Again, congratulations.
Miguel Fernandez - Grupo Clarin
Honestly I liked it too much! Everything was perfect!
Jose Antonio Furtado - Usiminas
Heard some great advice, learned from some workshops and meetings and gathered valuable information. Was well worth the travel and time dedicated. You have done a fine job!
Jose Uriburu - Alpargatas
First NG Retail Summit has been a really good experience! Great participants, professional management and very good venue.
Chris Madaus - Staples
I was surprised at how relevant the experience was. I thought it would be too IT focused, but found more than enough relevant contacts, networks and interaction. There was a lot I can make actionable.
Sarah Williams - The Body Shop
An opportunity to sit down with vendors face-to-face in a well organized setting, and no pressure format.
Terry Mayfield - Hibbett Sports
The relevancy of the discussion topics, the quality of the participants, and the overall format lends itself to really truly generating thoughts and forward-looking ideas. I challenged myself with bringing home three ideas… I will have at least five times that number!
Mike Robinson - Macy’s
The event provided quality time for resources and delegates to discuss specific issues and solutions.
Chris Lebamoff - Neiman Marcus
Great set of people, under one roof.
Sruti Patnaik - Ross Stores
I discovered vendors that have solutions for our opportunities. And all in 40 minutes.
Rick Jones - JCPenney Co.
Great Event in a great format that enables focused discussions and conversations. Having few suppliers, and few delegates provided a comfortable environment to share information.
Eric Champagne - Liz Claiborne
Really liked the format. I have been at similar conferences but this was much better.
John Holmquist - Boscovs
Overall the conference was very well run and it was worth the money for a few reasons: a. The Retailers there were interested, energized, serious and C-Level folks that we had access to b. The NGR folks made sure that we had a full plate of meetings - we had 17 face to face in total and they were all great - no lemons in the bunch to very high level executives. c. We have already paid for the investment and the follow up has been great. The retailers came ready to do business and ready to talk to us and the other vendors who participated....I loved the format and frankly - if we had to do this individually and travel to all the retailers locations - just the travel and time - it would be worth doing this conference - but we have already gotten our ROI on what we invested and are now the lead sponsor for Miami ....so we are going back for more.
Sheila Mulholland - Fifth Dimension
I appreciated the organized and focused attention. It made me more productive then going to a show that can take more time and more fragmented results.
David Edwards - Coldwater Creek
Great! Continued transformation since the first summit in Miami. Nice cross-functional representation of the retail organizations, with lots of great backgrounds to interact with. Sessions continue to get stronger.
Chuck Chapek - Ann Inc
Thanks for including me in the Miami event. I met some terrific contacts, and already have second appointments made with a number of the vendors I met while there.
Sharon Leite - Pier 1 Imports
Great Stuff. Appreciated efforts of NG Retail Staff setting up additional meetings.
