A new service dedicated to bringing an objective & pragmatic voice to the retail industry. Designed as a return to a high touch, high flexibility content service; EKN uses market research to design a portal that offers many new exciting ways to learn, network, and interact in ways not currently available in the market.
A New Voice: Yours
EKN provides retailers the one missing element from today’s research and analysis models – their voice. All of EKN’s reports are “Practitioner- Driven, Community-Reviewed”, so the insights are delivered with the pragmatic retailer in mind.
The value you get from meeting your peers in-person and online is both invaluable and irreplaceable. EKN’s Peer Forum provides an opportunity to meet with your peers in-person, while the EKN portal gives you an online destination to continually sustain and grow them. All around themes driven by the members.
Discover. Share. Evaluate.
