Refund Retriever is proud to be a gold sponsor at this year’s Retail Shippers Expo & Trade Show. The event, organized by RS Associates, brings together mail and business center owners with the goal of educating them about the industry and helping run business more efficiently. As the industry’s largest trade show, here’s why the Retail Shippers Expo should be on your list of unmissable events in 2018.


1. The Speedrounds, 

Thursday, May 3rd, 5:00PM – 6:00 PM

You’ve heard of Speed Dating, right? Well, this is the Retail Shippers’ version! With 30 topics, 30 tables, 30 presenters and an organizer with a stopwatch and whistle, the Speedrounds are a fun and chaotic way to learn LOTS of new information in just one hour!

One thing’s for sure, this is a fast and furious session, so be sure to load up on caffeine beforehand!

2. The Kick-off Reception

Thursday, May 3rd, 6:30PM – 8:30 PM

After a long day of learning, what better way to kick back and relax than at the Pool Bar with a few cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. This reception is a great chance to network with fellow attendees and industry leaders, and learn from your peers.

3. Attend This Breakout Session

Friday, May 4th, 3:15 PM in Bonaire 5 – How to Increase Your Shipping Savings While Maximizing Your Profit: 5 Tips How

Are you ready to amplify your store’s success whilst also saving dollars? In this breakout session, Refund Retriever Founder & President, Brian Gibbs, will present real-time insights and data to help you maximize your store’s profit, decrease your shipping spend and enhance your customer service.

During the presentation, you’ll be able to find out how your store’s costs compare to the average shipping spend. Gibbs will also be explaining how to introduce services that can add value to your store, increase your store’s margins and give you more opportunity to make a profit.

If you want to take your store to the next level, then this is a session you won’t want to miss!

4. Visit the Refund Retriever Booth

Friday May 4th, 7:00 – 8:30 PM, Saturday, May 5th, 11:30 AM – 4:30 PM

A key feature of the Retail Shippers Expo is the Trade Show. It gives you a valuable chance to get all-important face time with the carriers, vendors and suppliers who provide you with the products and services you need to build and grow your business.

This year, in addition to the established, long-term vendors, there will also be exciting NEW products and services available at the show – some for the very FIRST time.

Brian and Elahe will be at booth 208 so be sure to come by, say hello and find out how our reports and analytics can help you become a smarter shipper.

5. The Town Hall Meeting & Open Mic

Sunday, May 6th, 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

This year, RS Associates has put together a schedule packed with educational content that you’re going to need time to digest. Sunday’s closing session is a great chance to do this!

Not only does it cover what’s happening in the industry right now, it gives an open floor for attendees to ask questions. This could be a burning question from one of the event’s earlier sessions or a question you came with that has yet to be answered.

This session is your chance to get involved, speak up, and make sure that you go home with all the critical questions answered, ready to put everything that you’ve learned into action!
