Last updated on Thursday, December 20, 2018

(BLOOMINGTON) - The Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce will host its first Retail Summit in 2019, with a variety of keynote speakers, breakout sessions and discussion topics - all designed for brick-and-mortar retailers.

This all-day event will be an opportunity to learn from a variety of experts and network with retailers across
southern Indiana.

The Retail Summit will feature Raymond Burke, Chairperson of the Marketing Department for the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University.

Burke will share about consumer behavior and cutting-edge technology for retailers. Burke has been with the Kelley School of Business since 1996 and has experience in marketing research, retailing, shopper behavior and data mining. The Department of Marketing faculty and graduate students have access to Indiana University's Costumer Interface Laboratory, a state-of-the-art facility for investigating how consumers interact with the physical stores of today and the virtual stores of tomorrow.

Also scheduled to speak is Gary Brackett, former Indianapolis Colts player, and Super Bowl champion. Brackett is the owner of Stacked Pickle, a family-friendly restaurant chain with locations throughout Indiana. Brackett will share about how Stacked Pickle became Indianapolis' #1 neighborhood and sports bar, as well as Indianapolis' third-best burger on Indy A-List 2017.

Keep an eye open for ongoing updates on The Chamber's website - chamberbloomington.org/retail-summit.

Please encourage your fellow retailers to participate in the Retail Summit as well - it's open to any business or organization. There are also sponsorship and exhibitor opportunities to consider.
