Interactive workshop: 1:1 Retailing and the future of the in-store experience
Essential to a successful omnichannel strategy, brick-and-mortar stores are on the cusp of transformation. Consumer behavior has radically changed over the last two decades: The internet, new technologies, globalization, and a saturated marketplace are all driving expectations to seek the best price and the best quality delivered at the very moment of purchase.
Using profiles and case studies from some of the largest retail companies in the world, this presentation will discuss:
- What does the future hold for brick-and-mortar stores in our hyperconnected world?
- How can retailers create a seamless, customized in-store experience?
- What are the supply chain implications of 1:1 Retailing?
