Lundgren, Macy’s, Inc. chairman and CEO, Retired, who will deliver opening remarks. “The future of our industry is more than a story of disruption.

We are in an era of reimagination, and this conference helps bring thought leaders from numerous aspects of the retail, wholesale, fashion, marketing and technology worlds into focus in an environment where some of our next-generation talent can contribute to the conversation.”
