About the Conference

The Gravisite Conference is a forum promoting the sharing of knowledge and ideas among Site Location Research and Real Estate professionals.  Every attendee will be impacted by the dynamic topics presented and will learn from peers and educated presenters.  This allows each of us to leverage our unique insights, knowledge and expertise.  We're confident that this venue and atmosphere will be a catalyst to Elevating Customer Experience through an Analytic Perspective.  

Attendees recognize the numerous opportunities and challenges facing the Supermarket and Retail Industry.  While the retail industry remains an ever changing landscape, rarely has the confluence of so much transformation and change occurred at the same time.  As such, the role and impact of analytic-driven insights are more critical than ever!

MTN Retail Advisors, LLC is privileged to manage the conference and we recognize our responsibility to bring a value-add experience to you and your organizations.

Justify Your Attendance

Do you need to justify your attendance for this year's event? Here are some details as to what you will gain and how it will positively impact your life, as well as the company you work for.

Elevating the Customer Experience Through an Analytic Perspective: Whether our role is retailer, developer, landlord, consultant or broker; whether we develop, support and/or employ analytics in our day-to-day roles, we ALL have customers.

As related to the retail experience, the following are thought-provoking questions that will be addressed at the 2020 Gravisite Conference:

1.      Will local shoppers recommend your store to friends, family and neighbors, and why?

2.      Is your store simply a convenience to shop at, or are you providing an experience that continues to invite

         the customer back?

3.      What does your store offer that competitors do not and how are you sharing your offering with current       

         and future customers?

4.      Is your company struggling through the changes that are rapidly taking place within the market?

5.      What are you doing to elevate your customer experience using analytics and technology?
