Retail Innovation Starts Here
Digital Transformation involves ongoing exploration by today’s leaders, and our best advice is to not trek the journey alone. Our Transformational Retail Assembly coming this August in Denver is set to be an inspiring event featuring some of retail’s top C-Suite executives.
We know what you’re thinking…
This isn’t Your Run-of-the-Mill Conference or Summit.
Our Founders, like many C-Suite executives today, became disillusioned by the slew of retail conferences, summits and events on the market today that promised “world class networking” opportunities with leading industry decision-makers. In reality, they found that these events had antiquated discussion topics presented in an impersonal format, and quite frankly, it seemed like just about anyone could attend the event.
What Makes a Millennium Assembly Different?
We’re dedicated to creating the greatest think tank of today’s executives from some of the most prominent companies today. Our invite-only events consist of 55 carefully selected leaders holding C-Suite, EVP, and SVP positions from Fortune 500 companies.
These attendees are provided the opportunity to intimately connect in workshops & roundtables with fewer than 25 people, with interactive networking opportunities at our cocktail hour and Gala Keynote Dinner and personalized 1:1 meetings. This is an experience like no other, all taking place at some of the most beautiful hotel and resort venues in the country.
We’re serious about executive education. Our Assembly Agendas are data-driven and curated from our industry-expert Advisory Board, a group of 26 industry movers and shakers with a proven record of digitally transforming organizations from the ground-up. The prevailing topics and trends discussed at this assembly will cover the most poignant challenges affecting leaders today.
The Millennium Alliance’s goal is to change the way leaders look at executive education, and you won’t find this level of content, discussion, and networking anywhere else. We’re on the journey to digitally transform the retail industry with you.
