ECRS will host the Ignite 2023 Retail Success Conference on August 7-9, in Charlotte, NC. This will be the ninth Ignite, where retail and technology executives come together with industry thought leaders from across the country. The conference is a meeting of the minds, where guests can share insight and ideas, and explore innovative solutions that optimize retail performance.
At Ignite, attendees experience keynotes, expert-led panels, and workshops hosted by industry veterans. In 2023, ECRS is planning more retailer-led breakout sessions—a popular highlight of last year’s conference. The knowledge and resources offered are deeply valuable to retailers working to expand their business, create loyal customers, and grow their brand.
“Ignite is something that we never miss,” said Rob Jones of Marczyk Fine Foods. “We’ve been users [of CATAPULT®] since 2002, and we’ve been to every Ignite since you have offered it.”
For retailers who already use ECRS’ CATAPULT point-of-sale platform, intensive Success Workshops will provide more advanced knowledge and tools they need to get the most out of their CATAPULT systems. In 2022, these exclusive workshops proved to be the most popular content of the event, with more than half of the retailer attendees enrolling.
ECRS is headquartered in Boone, NC—just two hours north of Charlotte, where Ignite 2023 will take place. This proximity will make it possible for even more interaction between retailers and product developers during the three-day event. ECRS prides itself on being a small, agile company, with easy access to the brilliant minds behind the CATAPULT system.
At Ignite, attendees will have the chance to rub shoulders with hardware and software engineers who created the systems that are changing their businesses. For people like Nick Hidalgo, it is a conference like no other.
“It’s about interacting with product owners, with people who care about the product and can answer hard questions. It’s been great” said Hidalgo, of Redner’s Markets.
ECRS is proud to host industry leaders, up-and-coming retailers, and executives from across the nation. Ignite 2023 will be a valuable opportunity for inspiration, learning, and networking.
Members of the CATAPULT® Community are invited to attend the Ignite 2023 Conference at a discounted rate of $249 ($199 for Early Bird Discount). Non-CATAPULT® retailers are welcomed to attend at a cost of $499.
A complete list of speakers and breakout sessions will be released in early Spring. Visit the Ignite 2023 website and follow ECRS on social media to watch for updates.
