RetailROI 'Super Saturday' takes place Saturday, Jan. 13.

RetailROI is hosting its annual Super Saturday event the day before NRF 2024: Retail’s Big Show kicks off in January.

Celebrating its 15th year, RetailROI is once again bringing together retail thinkers for in-depth discussions on retail technology. In addition, Darryl McDaniels, better known as “DMC” from pioneering New York City rap group Run DMC, will deliver the keynote address.

Registration for the Super Saturday event, hosted by the Retail Orphan Initiative (RetailROI), is free for retailers. RetailROI is a grassroots charitable organization made up of people in the retail industry who use their skillsets, networks, and funding to raise awareness and provide assistance for more than 400 million vulnerable children worldwide, including 143 million global orphans as well as foster children.

The event starts with a breakfast networking session at 7:30 a.m. at the 11 Times Square Building in New York City and runs until 2 p.m. Session topics include state of the store, real-life case studies of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in retail, next-generation AI, building better teams, and technology predictions for 2024 and beyond. There will also be sessions explaining RetailROI and some of its charitable initiatives.

Panelists will include Ben Pivar, senior VP/CIO of Carter’s; John Phillips senior VP customer supply chain & go-to-market of Pepsico, Nicole Taylor, executive director of CFK; Vicki Cantrell, CEO of Vendors in Partnership; Giancarlo Fiorarancio, VP store & omnichannel technology of Dollar Tree; Cindy Lincks, VP operations of Kule; Kevin Ertell, former VP global operations of Nike; Jenna Posner, chief digital officer of Solo Brands; and Michael Martin, executive VP of Elior North America.
