Essential Retail has been reporting from NRF 2017 in NYC this week, covering all the latest news from the conference, as well as the hottest retail technologies on the exhibition floor. We also caught up with retailers and vendors from across the world and shared one or two beers with old friends and new, at one too many parties. NRF 2017 was the place to be this week, but if you didn't get a chance to cross the pond hopefully you were following the Essential Retail Twitter hashtag #EssRetailNRF for all the latest news. 

Here's our round-up of our favourite moments at NRF 2017.
