RetailNOW 2010 Keynote Speaker Featured In Washington Post

RSPA's RetailNOW 2010, where the industry meets, will feature Chris Fuller as the keynote speaker on Monday, July 28, 2010. Chris Fuller is a speaker, consultant, adventurist and author, most recently, of Iditarod Leadership: Unleashing the Power of the Team. His company, Influence Leadership, develops leaders around the world. Fuller was recently featured in the Washington Post, Epic race: What leaders can learn from Iditarod 2010, about his leadership insight.

RetailNOW is where the point of sale (POS) industry meets each year to become educated on new business trends, emerging technologies and best business practices along with exploring a diverse exhibit hall featuring the latest retail and hospitality POS products in the industry. RetailNOW 2010 will take place July 25 - 28, 2010 at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV.

The educational opportunities provided at RetailNOW are for all levels of POS industry professionals. Specifically, this year's RetailNOW will provide a customer panel for attendees to obtain real feedback from POS end users. RetailNOW 2010 will also feature a PCI (payment card industry) panel including representatives from other associations such as NRA (National Restaurant Association) and NACS (National Association of Convenience Stores) as well as a merchant who experienced a security breach. The much anticipated industry leader's panel will take place on July 27th and will include top decision makers from such companies as ScanSource, HP, MICROS, IBM, NCR, and BlueStar. This panel will provide attendees with the opportunity to participate in a conversation about where our industry is headed and what decisions are currently being made to influence that direction.

On Thursday, July 29th, the RSPA education department will provide classes specifically designed for sales and service managers for an additional fee. These two tracks are intense workshops that only allow limited attendance to enable each participant to take full advantage of the information being presented within a workshop environment.

"I'm excited about the variety of education sessions we're offering at RetailNOW2010," said Lauren Stark, RSPA Education Manager. "This year we have more plenary sessions focusing on POS industry leadership, the customer's viewpoint both from an implementation perspective and 'real life' PCI. The wide variety of break-out sessions mixed with networking lunch and learn opportunities will provide a full slate of education for all levels of industry professionals."
