LITTLE ROCK, Ark., Jan. 03, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Windstream (NASDAQ:WIN), a leading provider of advanced network communications, today announced that it will be exhibiting with BRP, one of the industry's premiere management consulting firms, at the National Retail Federation (NRF) 2018—Retail's Big Show—in New York, N.Y.Windstream and BRP will be meeting with retailers in booth #1663 to discuss key trends and issues in the retail industry and share insights on how retailers can accelerate the transformation of their business to succeed.

"NRF is the ideal setting to bring together leading retail executives and the most innovative solutions available," said Layne Levine, president of Windstream's Cloud & Connectivity business unit. "The retail industry is rapidly evolving at an accelerated pace with disruption coming from competitors, technology and increasingly demanding consumers. While retail is going through challenging times, victory belongs to the agile."
