Student Experience

Shop.org 2017 Student Program

Shop.org gives students insights into the future of digital retail and shows how companies are applying them in today's marketplace! Students attending this event are either Ray Greenly Scholars or hand-selected because they specialize in hacking, designing, coding or programming, entrepreneurship, or any type of engineering. As an attendee, you'll be able to connect with the retail industry's best and learn how your skills in technology can help shape the future of retail!
