This exciting event will bring together retailers, industry experts, and forward-thinking professionals to delve into the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities shaping the retail sector in Virginia. 

About

This luncheon will include a presentation of an in-depth retail study commissioned by Retail Alliance and conducted by Main Street America. The study analyzed current sales statistics and retail trends, blending them with national and state findings from their Small Business Survey of micro and small brick-and-mortar retailers across the U.S, to provide an in-depth look at the State of Retail in the U.S. and, in particular, Virginia.

NEW IN 2024: Three additional chapters in the study: AI, Workforce, and Access to Capital

In addition to the research results, we will also present a 2025 Legislative Outlook for the retail sector and hold panel chats on important retail trends and challenges. 

The event will be held at Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg.

Guest Speakers 

Industry experts including Matt Wagner, Chief Program Officer at Main Street America, expert lobbyists from Virginia Retail Federation, and leadership from Retail Alliance.
