Below you will find a nearly comprehensive list of all the major events with helpful info detailing whom each event is ideally suited for and focused on. So if you work in or with e-commerce, order management (OMS), warehouse management (WMS), or supply chain management, you can find your people – and event(s) here!

And if you go to any of these, make sure to say hi to any Stordians that might be there - they’ll be rocking the industry’s best swag.

We’ve highlighted some of the major events in the first half of the year, and then a comprehensive list, by sector, for other events you should look into for the entire year.

Major 2024 H1 Supply Chain, Logistics and Retail Events

These events are the biggest of the big.

NRF 2024

  • January 13-16
  • New York, New York
  • Retail Logistics and Supply Chain

NRF 2024 is a retail tradeshow that brings together more than 6,200 brands from around the globe to New York City. This event comprises 1,000 exhibitors and over 40,000 attendees. 

There are 170 sessions featuring 450 speakers focused on various topics including AI in inventory and optimization, and creating optionality and speed in supply chains.  Concurrently they host the NRF Supply Chain 360 Summit - a one day event on January 14th if you only want to focus on one day of speakers.

Please note you must register not only for the summit but also for each individual session – and you must qualify as a retailer or supply chain expert to attend. There is also a catered lunch and structured networking breaks.

The other days are dedicated to a welcome party and an Expo floor where you can learn about and experience all the vendors and their innovations.


  • February 5-7
  • Caesars Forum, Las Vegas
  • Supply Chain Tech and Networking

If you are looking for the Comic Con of supply chain events, it might be Manifest. Manifest unites the entire ecosystem of Fortune 500 global supply chain executives, logistics service providers, innovators and investors at the forefront of logistics tech and end-to-end supply chain. 

With over 250 speakers and an Expo floor, you can truly overwhelm yourself with information and business cards. The event features lots of parties, catered lunches and networking opportunities, and bills itself as the “premiere gathering of supply chain executives, logistics service providers, innovators and investors at the forefront of logistics tech and end-to-end supply chain.”

If you are thinking about international shipping, drones, sustainability, rail and everything in between, this is your one stop event.


  • March 17-20
  • Mandalay Bay, Las Vegas
  • Retail and Supply Chain Tech

Remember Manifest? Well forget it, cause now it’s time for ShopTalk. ShopTalk is where retail, technology, and innovation intersect.

This event has a similar focus on technology, with an Expo floor, and too many informative speakers to count. This is one of, if not the, biggest event to attend – so if you want to see it all, this is a good choice.

Also if you want to see Stord, this is an excellent opportunity as we will have booth #1773 on the Expo floor, giving you the opportunity to learn all about cloud supply chain and our flexible network of fulfillment centers and production-proven OMS and WMS technology. Will it be the best part of ShopTalk? Will it be the best part of your entire year? Unequivocally yes. But we may be biased.

MODEX 2024

  • March 11-14
  • Atlanta, GA
  • Material handling, logistics, and supply chain

Want to visit the Stord flagship fulfillment center AND attend a major logistics event? Then MODEX is the one for you. Hosted in our backyard in Atlanta, GA, this event is all about material handling, logistics, and supply chain knowledge. MODEX showcases end-to-end solutions from the leading manufacturing and supply chain suppliers.

With four keynotes (one with the president of UPS Supply Chain Solutions and another with actor Jeremy Renner), 150 educational sessions, and over 45,000 attendees, this is a good place to connect and learn. The entire session list is already set, so you can easily see everything that’s available. 

With MODEX, you get to see Jeremy Renner, dozens of presentations, AND if you’re looking to see how your high volume brand can benefit from Stord’s award-winning fulfillment and logistics technology, reach out about visiting our Atlanta Innovation & Fulfillment location while you’re here! This feels like a slam dunk.

IWLA Convention + Expo

  • April 21-23
  • Orlando, Florida
  • All Things Warehousing

This is the event if you are into golf! And also warehousing…but also golf because the Expo takes place surrounded by 36 holes at the Omni Orlando Hotel. IWLA is the annual gathering of North American warehouse logistics leaders.

Like all of these events, you have the opportunity to walk the Expo floor and connect with hundreds of industry leaders in the warehouse and logistics space - discovering firsthand the developments of robotics, automation, WMS, and more.

But the real value is in the convention speakers. Dozens of hyper-focused panels and presentations cover all the topics relevant to your warehouse or the warehousing of your products. Given that warehousing operations can easily be a massive source of headache for any business, this convention might be the one to help soothe that pain. And if that doesn’t work, did we mention the golf!?

The Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo

  • May 6-8
  • Orlando, Fl
  • Managing supply chains

Looking for “pragmatic advice” (their words) to help your supply chain deliver now and in the future? Then perhaps Gartner is for you. The Gartner Supply Chain Symposium/Xpo is the annual gathering of CSCOs and Supply Chain Executives.

This event is geared towards CSCOs and similar heads of logistics/supply chain and will combat big-vision issues like economic volatility, talent burnout, and more. Enjoy guest speakers, workshops, and even a CSCO Circle (pre-registration required) for a more hands-on approach to learning and problem solving for your specific business. Specific speakers and exhibitors have yet to be announced.


  • June 17-19
  • Dallas, Texas
  • Subscription and Membership Business

Do you operate a subscription-based business? Then SubSummit was literally made for you. From supplements to streaming services and everything in between, this is the place to learn more about creating consumer engagements and superior product experiences.

There are six session tracks with over 180 speakers to learn from, as well as a structured networking/meeting feature and an exhibitor floor. While this event isn’t 100% focused on logistics, it will help you maintain and grow your recurring revenue business.
