Who is Shop! Marketplace?

Shop! Marketplace is owned by SmartWork Media, a publishing company with eight B2B publications and five conferences/shows in the B2B sector.

During nearly two years of no trade shows, retailers — already struggling to reinvent themselves — weathered dramatic changes and had to go it alone. An innovative, collaborative show is needed to provide the community with the opportunity to meet face-to-face, explore problems and solutions, and come up with new ideas.
