2018 Velocity Conference Save the Date!

We are excited here at My Private Brand to announce the dates for the 2018 Velocity: The My Private Brand Conference. The 2018 conference will be held at the brand new state of the art Kimpton Tryon Park Hotel. The hotel takes a decidedly different approach to Southern traditions. As gracious hosts in an evolving city, we invite you to take part in the culture of the New South in Uptown Charlotte, where the buzzing energy of a major city blends with hospitality.

After a day spent changing the world in the Velocity Conference, relax with an expertly crafted cocktail at the sleek rooftop bar set 19 stories above Romare Bearden Park and greater Charlotte. Inside, rest on luxe linens among soothing shades of gray and blue, preparing to take on another day in this flourishing southern hub.

We encourage you to join your fellow private brand professionals for world-renowned retail speakers, panels, and networking events in the heart of the city. If you attend only one private brand conference each year, make sure it’s the Velocity Conference.

The Velocity Conference is currently recruiting retail executives to speak at this years event. APPLY TODAY!

Sponsorship opportunities are available. LEARN MORE!
