Target designs and creates innovative solutions for a broad range of global retail challenges. A focus on technology at Target gives them competitive advantage in the marketplace, but also enhances the guest experience through the smart use of technology in the retail industry.
Target Corporation serves guests at more than 1,700 stores throughout the U.S. and at Target.com. Target will open over 100 locations in Canada in 2013. The company is headquartered in Minneapolis, Minnesota with additional headquarters locations in the U.S. in Arizona, New York, South Dakota and Utah; in Bangalore, India; and in Mississauga, Ontario, Canada. Since 1946, Target has given 5 percent of its income through community grants and programs; today, that giving equals more than $4 million a week.
In addition to their sponsorship of the conference Target has generously offered to host a hackathon on the night of Sunday, July 21st after our workshops complete. More details will be coming soon on this event.
We want to once again thank Target for their sponsorship. We're excited for another GR8 conference this year!
