My first visit

I've heard so much about this show over the last few years, so I'm very excited to attend for the first time this year.

With VME's Eposity product in beta, there are a lot of companies who could integrate their apps into the Eposity framework, so I intend to meet quite a few of them to discuss this.

Over 500 exhibitors

510 to be exact, spread over 240,000 square feet. 33,000 attendees.

That's almost twice as big as RBTE, which is the largest equivalent event in Europe. EuroCIS, a similar event in Germany last year received just over 10,000 attendees. Both are great exhibitions, but the NRF Big show is the main event for Retail IT.

Of course I'm only interested in exhibitors relevant to Grocery IT, which narrows it down slightly. There are still over 100 exhibitors on my "to see list" though.

Engagement

My wife and I were engaged in New York just over 2 years ago, and this will be our first visit back. I'm sure we'll find time to re-visit the spot in Central Park where I proposed!
