Consumers are flocking back to stores, and retail professionals are once again gathering at events. Last year’s Aptos Engage, our first in-person customer conference in three years, was a huge success.
The positive energy will only grow when we meet in Las Vegas May 16-19 for Aptos Engage 2023. Engage is a chance to share experiences, successes and strategies. It’s a time for our clients to unlock another level of value from our market-leading solutions. But most of all, it’s an opportunity to foster community.
Retail is as dynamic and complex as I’ve ever seen it. But the ability to connect with the industry’s top experts, executives, partners, influencers and technologists is invaluable to navigating these challenging conditions with confidence and propelling your business forward.
If you’re planning on joining us in Las Vegas — or you’re still on the fence — this blog post shines light on what you can expect from Aptos Engage 2023.
Personally, among my favorite elements of Engage are our featured customer case studies and panels.
As the chief marketing officer of Aptos, I believe strongly that it’s best to bring the value of our solutions to life by letting our customers share their experiences. The customer sessions demonstrate the impact of our solutions on our clients’ businesses. But they also serve as a platform to share tips, insights and best practices.
We had a record number of customer speakers at Engage 2022. And with all the recent and rapid changes in the retail industry, it was as important as ever to give our customers the floor. So, we built our agenda with a customer success-centric approach again this year.
Here are some highlights from Aptos’ client-led sessions:
You can check out our detailed agenda here.
Last year, we hosted Insight at Engage, the first-ever “conference within a conference” experience for our Revionics community. It’s back and even better than before.
As an extended event, Insight at Engage gives attendees more content, more networking and more opportunities.
At Insight, you get a first look at the latest updates to Revionics’ innovative pricing solutions, exclusive training opportunities, and the chance to dive deep into pricing tips and trends with the Revionics team and your retail pricing peers.
Take a look at a selection of the sessions we have planned for Insight at Engage:

In addition to all the engaging and informative sessions shared above, there’s even more to look forward to.
Aptos CEO Pete Sinisgalli will kick off the first full day of the conference with his keynote, “Aptos State of the Business: A Look Forward.” It will be the first of several keynotes offering an update on our business performance, product strategies and R&D investments. Stay up to date on the progress toward our Unified Commerce vision and hear how we’re investing in our solutions to help you succeed.
Immediately following our opening keynote, you’ll hear a session conducted in partnership with Bain and Company on the state of Unified Commerce. In this presentation, Bain executives will preview exclusive survey findings on how retail IT professionals feel about where Unified Commerce currently stands and where it’s heading.
And later on in the conference agenda, you won’t want to miss the keynote “The Adventure of Business” from performance coach, adventurer and entrepreneur Jamie Clarke. In it, he’ll share insights gained throughout his remarkable life: He climbed to the peak of Mt. Everest twice. He was the founder and CEO of an outdoor lifestyle retailer. And he has coached Olympic gold medalists, Stanley Cup champions and global brand leaders.
Beyond the inspiring conference content, networking is also a major focus of the Engage experience, so we’ve fostered ample opportunities for you to connect with other attendees. Talk trends and share experiences during our Power Hour Networking & Cocktail Reception. And make sure to check out The Hub, the central destination to socialize with experts, peers and partners at Engage!
And what’s a conference without a little fun? Join us at our Welcome Reception in the evening on May 16 for food, cocktails and conversation. Then, on May 17, we’re heading to the award-winning Flight Club, a social darts destination with outstanding food and drinks. And on our final night, May 18, we’re hosting our Customer Appreciation Party at the luxurious and exclusive Encore Beach Club!
Events of this magnitude can’t come to life without support from our broader ecosystem. From all of us at Aptos and Revionics, we’d like to extend our gratitude to our Engage 2023 sponsors.
Aptos Engage 2023 will be held at the world-renowned Encore at Wynn Las Vegas. With warm weather, plenty of sunshine and scenic views, you’ll be in an ideal environment to learn, network and have fun.
