By DC Velocity Staff

When you think of runaway retail success stories, a yogurt vendor might not come immediately to mind. But Chobani LLC is no ordinary yogurt company. Within five years of its 2007 launch, the startup had become the top-selling Greek yogurt brand in the U.S., with more than $1 billion in annual sales. In addition to being wildly successful, Chobani is a trailblazer, having been named one of the 10 most innovative companies in the world as well as one of the most socially responsible. If you're hungry to learn more, head to New York City on Jan. 14 to hear Chobani Founder and CEO Hamdi Ulukaya deliver the keynote address at the National Retail Federation's "NRF 2018: Retail's Big Show."

Scheduled for Jan. 14-16 at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, NRF's Big Show is expected to attract 35,000 attendees and more than 600 exhibitors. In addition to an exposition showcasing the latest retail technologies, the event includes an education conference divided into content tracks such as technology, business performance and growth, innovation, and partnerships and collaborations.

This year's speaker lineup includes Martin Barthel, Facebook's head of global retail & eCommerce strategy; Spencer Fung, CEO of 111-year-old Asian consumer goods giant Li & Fung; and Arianna Huffington, founder of both The Huffington Post and Thrive Global, a training and coaching firm that helps professionals avoid work-related burnout and handle technology-induced stress.
