The Retail Summit 2021
March 9 - March 10
The Retail Summit 2021 “retail’s new and resilient future” will get to the heart of the new retail landscape and the opportunities that lay ahead.
The COVID-19 pandemic turned the world on its head and has brought unprecedented change to the global retail industry. The tenacity and speed at which Retail has adapted to job loses, stores closures, supply-chain volatility and changes to consumer behaviour, shines a spotlight on its bright and resilient future.
The Retail Summit 2021 programme will help you seize the moment and drive forward a truly new retail experience. Get close to the action with the world’s most inspirational leaders as they debate and discuss the new rules of engagement and the decisions the industry must take now to accelerate its recovery. From 15-minute, impactful TED-style talks from industry heavyweights to extended roundtable groups, delve into complex issues and rejuvenate your business model.
Topics at this year’s Summit include merging the online and offline worlds; collaboration vs competition: creating an ecosystem of innovation for the new age; sustainability: moving beyond the buzzword; retail’s rapid digitalisation; what the future holds for the physical store; planning for disruption: building agile and resilient supply chains; and much more.
