Radius8 is the pioneer of the new industry standard for store-centric online experiences and in-store experiences based on local digital demand, which have become table stakes to meet today’s high consumer expectations.
Launched at the inaugural 2016 Shoptalk, the world’s largest conference for retail and ecommerce innovation, Radius8 returns to Shoptalk next week as a Level 5 sponsor--consisting of the top 15 sponsors of more than 500 sponsoring and exhibiting companies.

Over the past two years, Radius8 has defined a new industry standard for digital engagement with brick and mortar by solving for gaps between consumer expectations and the realities of today’s retail engagement model. The company has grown rapidly with many established retailers and brands signing on for its groundbreaking solution in a short period of time.
