9th Annual Innovation Summit

Feb 2nd - Feb 3rd
Newport Beach, CA



Thank you for joining us at the 9th Annual Storelocal Innovation Summit in sunny Newport Beach!
This member-only event is a chance for Storelocal's Founders, Members, and Partners to come together as a community. In this meeting we will learn, plan for the future, brainstorm, network, and enjoy being together in a beautiful setting.

 This year we have added a few twists to our biggest member event of the year. 
First, we have added a Storelocal Brand Owner Meeting on Thursday from 9:30 AM - 12:30 PM. This is for members who are operating one or more of their properties under the Storelocal® Brand, and anyone considering becoming part of the Storelocal Brand family. (requires a separate registration).

Second, on Thursday afternoon we are pleased to bring you the first-ever  Hummingbird/Mariposa User Conference, hosted by Tenant Inc. You are encouraged to bring your district managers and anyone on your team who would benefit. 

 Last, we are having our Thursday night cocktails and dinner at a new location, even closer to the hotel and the Pacific Club. If you loved our traditional location for the Thursday night dinner, you will be happy to know that this is a new concept by the very same owners of il Barone, with the warm hospitality and authentic Italian favorites you've come to love. Make sure to note the new address below!This member-only event is a chance for Storelocal's Founders, Members, and Partners to come together.
