SPECS Show, now in its 56th year, focuses on what is next, and what is shaping the future of retail.

Exclusively produced by Chain Store Age, SPECS brings together the nation's top retailers and top suppliers to learn, share ideas, develop business partnerships and solve problems. At SPECS, retailers involved in the planning, design, construction and maintenance of stores and restaurants come to grapple with the challenges facing their brands, their buildings and their businesses – finding new solutions and forging new relationships.

SPECS is a high networking event, with an abundance of one-to-one exchanges that present an opportunity to make meaningful and lasting connections with high-level decision-makers across the industry. Everyone benefits from the face-to-face retailer-supplier interactions, three packed days of rich content including breakout sessions and top-tier keynote and Main Stage addresses, the solution-centric exhibit floor and memorable evening receptions.

With its laser focus on brick-and-mortar, SPECS is clearly at the Forefront of Physical Retail, presenting a forum designed to not just accommodate, but cultivate, relationship-building and problem-solving.
