Following the 2022 annual CMA | SIMA Conference in Orlando, ARC brought together 9 founding retailers to explore the need for an industry group focused on Space. This Charter group was passionate about elevating Space Planning to the same professional level as Category Management, Shopper Insights, Supply Chain, and other recognized retail functions. The retailers met monthly through 2022 and into 2023 laying the foundation for an industry group focused on networking, best practice sharing, training, and more.
