The 2019 NRF Foundation Gala
Not only a night of celebration, the NRF Foundation Gala is one of the best ways for retail executives to give back to the industry that has given so much to them. All proceeds benefit the NRF Foundation’s initiatives.
Join NRF as it celebrates The Visionary, The List of People Shaping Retail's Future and announces its 2019 Next Generation scholarship and Student Challenge case competition recipients, on January 13, 2019, at the NRF Foundation Gala during The NRF Big Show.
The NRF Foundation has announced the 25 individuals named to The List of People Shaping Retail’s Future (see below). The honorees include a wide range of dynamic people impacting retail and will be celebrated January 13, 2019, at the NRF Foundation Gala in New York City.
Proceeds from the Gala benefit the NRF Foundation, NRF’s nonprofit arm, which is committed to demonstrating retail as an industry of opportunity and creating programs that help people become trained and find jobs in retail.
“There has never been a more exciting time to be a part of the retail industry, and people on The List 2019 epitomize the creativity, enthusiasm and energy in retail today,” NRF Foundation president Ellen Davis said. “This year’s honorees are at the forefront of innovation in retail: creating new businesses, breathing life and energy into existing concepts, impacting investments, and spearheading change that inspires industry leaders and consumers across the globe.”
