Engage 2018 Photo Album: Three Days of Retailing Differently, in Photos

Aptos Engage 2018 brought together over 300 people from across the retail industry to network, brainstorm, share successes and strategies for finding new ways to retail differently. The immediate feedback from those in attendance indicated that the event was a success, and the photos offer more evidence to that effect.

Below are a few of our favorites from throughout the event. You can also view the entire gallery here to get a deeper look at all the activities throughout the conference.

Either way…enjoy, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
