“What will the next generation of retail look like?”

The future of retail will be the first topic of the day. Hosted by Michelle Beeson (Analyst serving E-Business & Channel Strategy Professionals – Forrester), this keynote will address the importance for brands and distributors to focus their attention on the customer to respond to two developments: consumer behaviour and the technologies they use. The key? Adapt quickly and regularly to these new challenges and demonstrate agility to successfully attract and retain customers.

“Inspired Shopping: You’ll know it when you see it”

In today’s hyperconnected world, consumers now have more choice than ever in their shopping journey. One-click payment same-day delivery and so on, today purchasing is instantaneous, however consumers’ buying decisions are much less so. We’re pleased to welcome Amy Vener (Head of Retail Strategy – Pinterest) on stage to discuss this topic and share her advice to help brands inspire consumers as much as possible.
