The retail industry is at an inflection point. And technology’s role in its disruption is growing larger every day.
Tactics that once worked don’t have the same impact today, so traditional retailers and brands turn to reinvention to survive. They’re investing in startup brands, experimenting with direct-to-consumer, mastering social media as a sales channel and reimagining the in-store experience. Their goal: Connect with a new generation of shoppers who expect more from brands than simply a transaction.
Tech is reshaping consumer behavior. Recode’s Jason Del Rey is equipped to help you decipher the new landscape.
That’s why Recode is returning to Shoptalk to host An Evening With Code Commerce. Senior commerce editor Jason Del Rey and executive editor Kara Swisher will sit down with the most innovative minds in the field for Recode’s signature, unscripted red chair interviews to discuss the state of retail and e-commerce.
We’ve secured a lineup of digital commerce visionaries to speak at the event:
Jenn Hyman, co-founder and CEO of online fashion-rental pioneer Rent the Runway, will discuss her plans to push her clothing subscription service into the mainstream.
DoorDash CEO Tony Xu and The Cheesecake Factory president David Gordon will dive deep into their new partnership, the economics of on-demand food delivery and DoorDash’s move to serve as a seamless logistics engine for mainstream restaurant chains.
This evening event will also include networking opportunities with your smartest peers from top retailers, digital-native brands and the consumer packaged goods, tech and payments industries.

Media, Recording & Photography Policy
The An Evening With Code Commerce stage is on the record for journalistic and editorial purposes. Journalists may quote anything the speakers and Executive Producers say onstage in stories or blog posts. Interviews that occur offstage in the hallways or at social gatherings are subject to whatever ground rules are agreed upon between parties at the time of the interview.
Still photos, taken from your seats, are OK. We ask that you do not use flash so as not to distract or annoy the speakers or others in attendance. Do not stand or crouch in the aisles or near the stage, as this interferes with our official show photographer, whose photos will be posted online for use by members of the media.
Finally, video and audio recordings are strictly prohibited, as we consider the audio and video content of our stage to be copyrighted. Similarly, while we respect fair-use reprinting of short text quotes, we do consider full transcripts of the conference to be our intellectual property.
This policy applies to all conference attendees.
