Without a doubt, the traditional retail market has been, and is being, disrupted by the ubiquitous nature of the Internet and the power of the mobile consumer. Simply having a storefront and an advertising campaign, whether physical or virtual, is no longer a guarantee to commercial success. So, as a consequence, brands and retailers need to find new ways to engage with prospective customers.

For the last 15 years Alibaba has been at the forefront of the e-commerce revolution in China, today supporting a consumer base of 500M users, 70K international brands and transacting over $17B in a single 24-hr period during the world’s largest e-shopping day.

Now Alibaba is leveraging this experience to re-define the traditional approach of online and offline channels into the concept of ‘New Retail’. Working alongside our Partner QBit Kloud, who are experts in this transformation approach, we are helping enterprises open new markets and opportunities globally.

Join our breakfast briefing on 26 October to find out about New Retail in more detail – topics include:

  • Omni-channel strategies. How retail/consumer transactions are no longer just about ‘paying at the cash register’ but a merger of online/offline experiences

  • New markets & new strategies. How the power of cloud and the intelligence gained through Big Data is enhancing traditional retail business models through next generation, cloud-enabled POS and Intelligent Stock Management solutions

  • Entertainmentalisation & the new shopping experience. How the Chinese market is re-defining the way consumers approach their purchasing decisions

  • Retail transformation. How Qbit is helping businesses on their digital transformation journey and laying the foundation for successful entry into the massive China e-commerce marketplace.

This event will be opened with an introduction by Jack Porteus, of the China-Britain Business Council.
