Elevating Run Specialty

St. Louis - April 29-May 2, 2024

Union Station Hotel 

We are thrilled to announce an exciting transition for our annual member event. Beginning this spring, we will be gathering at the RIA Summit. The new name reflects the ethos of the show - helping retailers, brands and associate members connect in ways that elevate their businesses.  

The RIA Summit  is designed for owners, buyers, key staff and brand personnel in the run specialty channel. 

RIA Summit 2024

  • Monday, April 29 to Thursday, May 2nd

  • Union Station Hotel – St. Louis, Missouri  [Venue Information Below]


St. Louis

  • 1820 Market Street

  • St. Louis, MO 63103

We will enjoy a new gathering place, the elegant and iconic Union Station Hotel in downtown St. Louis, Missouri.

Based on the feedback from Runchella 2023, we needed a larger, more versatile venue to accommodate additional, quieter meeting spaces which were cost-prohibitive in Chicago. This new location will offer opportunities for more programming (including a track for smaller/newer stores), peer-sharing, one-on-one brand conversations, and increased schedule flexibility- all in the spirit of “Your Show, Your Way”.
