Here’s a rundown of this year’s event.
RICE 2022 Overview
RICE is a combination of three events: Internet Retailer Conference and Expo, design: Retail Conference and Expo, and Retail Innovation Summit. The agenda is packed, and is focused on topics like omnichannel strategy, e-commerce, digital marketing, and physical store design.
