We are just a couple of days out from the start of NRF ‘24: Retail’s Big Show at the Javits Center in New York City. It’s not our first time attending the can’t-miss retail trade show, but we’re thrilled to share that we at Threefold – for the first time – will be taking the stage to share our retail media insights.
It’s a big year for retail media at NRF. Not only will retail media have a presence throughout the entire show January 14-16, but the National Retail Federation, in partnership with our friends at STRATACACHE, have extended the show and added an entire day of retail media-oriented programming. What’s even more exciting is that Threefold will appear on stage not just once, but twice during the event to share our learnings from operating more than 10 Retail Media Networks over the past 15 years.
Titled “What’s in store for Retail Media Networks,” here’s what the NRF has to say about the day of programming on January 13:
In the first event of its kind, NRF and STRATACACHE are partnering to dedicate a full day before NRF 2024: Retail's Big Show (January 14-16) to take a deep dive into how in-store media networks will deliver significant streams of new revenue from the physical store.
Retail media is a $45 BILLION market this year and will continue to grow by about $10 BILLION in 2024.
It’s going to be a big year for retail media. We’re looking forward to starting with a bang at NRF.
What you can expect from Threefold at NRF
Lee LeFeuvre, Threefold’s Chief Commercial Officer, will take the stage at 11:40 a.m. Saturday for a panel discussion titled “The state of in-store media: Non-US perspectives.” Lee will be joined by Dean Harris, Head of Retail Media & Membership at Co-op, for a discussion moderated by Andy Murray, founder of BigQuest.
Lee and Dean will discuss with Andy the evolution of Co-op’s retail media offering, particularly as it pertains to how its RMN has taken a truly omnichannel approach to retail media that has leveraged in-store touchpoints to drive sales and additional revenue. Since Threefold and Co-op first joined forces in 2017, Co-op’s RMN offering has grown immensely, added dozens of new channels and increased compliance to 80%.
With more than 80% of all retail sales in the US occurring in physical stores, we at Threefold know the importance of the store to activating effective retail media campaigns. That’s why we’ve spent years activating them across our retail media partnerships, including at Co-op.
Lee and Dean will also speak to:
The digitization of the store
How consistent measurement and data is key to securing brand dollars
The importance of streamlining collaboration between retailer and brand
How in-store retail media stands to make the shopping experience better for consumers
Then, following a break for lunch, we’ll pick right back up with Threefold Partnership Director, Amber Roberts, who will take the stage at 1:00 p.m. for a panel discussion titled “Why data counts - Extending monetization across all retail channels.” Amber will be joined in the discussion by Lori Johnshoy, Head of Retail/CPG/Media Network Strategy at LiveRamp; Howard Luks, VP of Vertical Development, CPG and Retail at LiveRamp and Ben Reynolds, VP of Business Development at Walkbase.
Amber will share more perspectives on Threefold’s approach to in-store retail media, particularly as it pertains to data derived from the store. At Threefold, data is at the core of every decision we make. We know that a retailer’s in-store consumer behavior data offers great potential to enhance a retailer and brand’s targeting capabilities online and offsite. Amber will share how valuable this data is to retailers and brands looking to make their retail media work as hard and as effectively as possible to grow revenue and foster loyalty in this next era of retail media.
Additionally, you can expect to see Threefold Co-founder Matt Lee, Client Director Tara Hekmat and Marketing Manager Connor Perrett at the Javits Center during NRF. If you see us, be sure to say hello!
