Retail Live! 2013 a Huge Success

August 29, 2013 by Ricardo De Camps

RetailLive6Hundreds of retailers, brokers, engineers, property managers, developers and other real estate professionals descended upon the AT&T Executive Education and Conference Center in Austin, Texas to attend the second annual Retail Live! event on August 28, 2013. BIG RED DOG served as the entertainment sponsor for the event which attracted over 100 retailers from across the state and country. These included retailers already located in the lone star state and those looking to expand here.RetailLive3

This event is different for a couple of reasons. First, it’s not just your typical Central Texas crowd. If anything, the number of people coming in from Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and outside of the state outnumbered local professionals. Second, it provides a laid back atmosphere that encourages casual attire, impromptu meetings, and a festive ambiance. Nothing says festive quite like one that features BIG-DOG-A-RITAS and music from Austin’s own local icon Bob Schneider.

RetailLive1BIG RED DOG was proud to be a part of this industry event that is quickly establishing itself as one of the can’t miss industry events of the year. We look forward to working with Retail Live! and their excellent staff in the following years.
