What You Will Hear:
Keynote title: Innovative Technology to Enhance the Customer Retail Experience
Are you making your retail experience personal? There are a number of macro factors driving major structural changes in the retail environment. Although there is a great deal of focus on technology, the real story is the way that tecnology is being used. Technology is most effective where it is used to build the relationship between consumers and channels and brands. In many ways, consumers want the same things they have always wanted - they just want them when they want them, differently - in ways that reflect their lives and sense of self. The real question is, "How will technology transform the relationship between consumers and brands in a global ecosystem?". How will you make it personal?.
