Meet the 20 amazing RetailTech startups from the French Tech delegation.


 Press Releases

  • From customer experience, logistics, marketing, loyalty strategies, store management to marketplaces, our startups will be showcasing their innovation during NRF 2019 on our Pavilion run by Business France and La French Tech. We are now revealing this ambitious and promising delegation.

    For the past three years, French startups specializing in Retail kept growing. We count more than a thousand companies working on improving brands and shop experience through simplification and driving faster sales growth.

    NRF Retail’s Big Show has considered a key event thanks to its innovative solutions and technologies targeting all distribution stakeholders. This leading Trade Fair will take place on January 13-15, 2019. Last year, it welcomed 37.000 visitors and 700 exhibitors from 99 countries.

    After last year’s success, the French Pavilion is proud to count on SES-Imagotag's support for 2019:

    We know this environment well as we have been exhibiting our solutions for almost a decade. More than ever, shops need to reinvent themselves and master digital solutions. France is a significant player in RetailTech and these companies can help brands achieve this critical digital transformation. Therefore, we are proud to support this delegation and also pleased to invite our three favorite startups to our corner” highlights Thierry Gadou, CEO & Chairman of SES-Imagotag.

    Out of 100 applications, 20 gems will join the Show thanks to their innovative products, their capacity to have a high ROI, and their potential commercial success. Experts from Google Cloud, iloveretail.fr, LeadX Capital Partner, Groupe Beaumanoir, Bearing Point (and more) teamed up to form the jury.

    The delegation (full list below) splits into two different groups: 14 mature companies (3-day exhibition) and 6 early stage (1.5-day exhibition). Mirakl, one of the mature participant, has successfully generated growth thanks to its marketplace model for major names like Best Buy, Urban Outfitters and Office Depot - but it’s not the only one seducing American brands. ContentSquare and AB Tasty both improve optimization for clients such as GoPro, Rebeca Minkoff, Avon, Ralph Lauren, Goldman Sachs, Tiffany & Co, 1-800 flowers, Lime Crime, Vans, Timberland, Hugo Boss, Kipling, North Face, Ashley Homestore, Assurant, Deckers Brands, Gannett, SuperShuttle and more.
