Actions and Detail Panel
Compete with Amazon, Asos & John Lewis through retail technology
Wed 19 October 2016, 13:30 – 17:00 BST
Join us for this afternoon of presentations, discussions and insights exploring how expanding retailers can utilise technology to compete with their larger competitors, such as Amazon, Asos and John Lewis.
Hear from Retail IT who will explain how easy it is now to implement the likes of click & collect, e-receipts, mobile POS into your retail offering. Understand how business intelligence tools can be used to ensure you stay ahead of your competitors and how social media and intuitive marketing can drive footfall, build brands and deliver significant ROI.
Purenet will demonstrate how online channels can help you become a true omnichannel retailer. And our keynote speaker Sir Clive Woodward will draw upon his sporting and business career to provide the inspiration to take your business to the next stage.
We are confident you will leave our event full of insights, ideas and inspiration!
