Retail Futures 2021

Online Event - 29 April

Overview

Join our Retail Futures online event for a packed programme of practical insights, exclusive debates and discussions, and an executive summary of the retail landscape.

In 2021, retailers must demonstrate their ability to be agile and responsive to remain relevant in the inter-Covid period. The pandemic has not only forced consumers to reconsider their spending habits, but how and where they interact with retail brands. As hyper-local shopping, e-commerce and home-based retail experiences gain ground, the sector must consider what this means for supply chains, access to goods, brand agility, sustainability and customer experience. 
 
Looking to the future, these retail shifts have the potential to filter into key touchpoints for consumers, from collaborative logistics to Civic Brand stores.

You can buy tickets for this event for just £35, or get your ticket free when you pre-order the Retail Futures 2021 PDF trend report.
