What People Are Saying

  • I was a first-time attendee, the CEO of an emerging brand, and was blown away by the FN Summit. The speakers were candid and quite thought-provoking, even the ones WAY outside my niche. And the networking opportunities were better than any event I've attended in the 4 years since starting our company. I'm tremendously grateful to everyone who helped make the Summit happen, as well as to the openness and honesty of all the attendees I encountered

    CEO, XERO SHOES

  • I found it was very well done and very valuable. Interesting presentation and lots of key industry players in attendance.

    DIRECTOR, THE NPD GROUP

  • We had a wonderful time and found all of the panels to be very informative. Thank you for having us and we look forward to coming again.

    JOIE

  • I have attended the last 3 or 4 summits and I think it's a great event. I love listening to the industry speakers and truly look forward to their perspectives and topics. It’s of great value.
