Strategic Changes to CAMEX = Greater ROI for You!

Radical changes in our industry require a conference program that is both bold in the face of our challenges and engaging to us as learners. The 2016 CAMEX educational conference has been streamlined in organization yet reconceived and enhanced in content.

CAMEX Tracks Streamline Program

Find the learning that answers your tough questions among the CAMEX Tracks:
  • Store Leadership and Strategy
  • Practical Store Operations
  • Buying, Merchandising, and Marketing
  • ConTEXT: Course Materials, Digital Content, and the Academic Mission


ConTEXT—The conference on technology and textbooks—was one of the most beloved meetings in the industry and returns again as a content focus for multiple tracks at CAMEX 2016.
