SPECS Chairman and
VP/Group Publisher Chain Store Age
This past year has been challenging for the entire retail industry, and the SPECS team is excited to play a pivotal role in bringing the store development community back together. Chain Store Age is excited to provide the critical solutions needed to compete in this ever-changing landscape at our 57th annual SPECS Show in Maryland’s National Harbor, at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center.
With help from our distinguished advisory board, we've created a program that is designed to enlighten, educate and inspire. The 2021 program features not only critical issues and trends impacting store design/planning, construction and facilities management, but we will also offer the opportunity to elevate professional growth and development, and deliver big, new ideas that are transforming physical retail.
The retail industry’s response to the events of the last year is proof of retailers’ resilience and commitment to innovating and reimagining operations across their physical stores. As the retail landscape continues to change, you can count on SPECS and our dedication to providing you with the best possible conference experience, as well as an environment that provides the solutions needed to compete in this new era of retail.
