RetailNOW enjoyed its biggest day in show history on July 31, attracting approximately 1,800 retail IT professionals to Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Following are the most intriguing insights and comments shared via Twitter on that historic day. I included a few of my own Tweets, so let me apologize in advance for the self-promotion:
