ABOUT THE GALA

Celebrating Imagination, Inspiration and Innovation | Sunday, January 15, 2017

Retail is filled with passionate, creative and motivated people who are paving the way for this industry. Our third annual Gala, held at Pier Sixty in New York City, recognized and honored 25 individuals who are impacting the retail industry today through The List of People Shaping Retail’s Future. We also celebrated and awarded scholarships to young people pursuing retail careers so they may become the leaders of tomorrow.

An uplifting, high energy experience, the Gala is one of the best ways for retail executives to give back to the industry that has given so much to them.

All proceeds benefit the NRF Foundation's initiatives including funding for student scholarships and experiences, advancement efforts for young professionals in retail, helping veterans transition to the civilian workforce, and showcasing diverse and innovative retail career opportunities.
