The Agenda

DAY: EVENT

A unique event and experiential show in collaboration with Intel explored how digital connectivity, the Internet of Things, personalisation, analytics, location-insights and sensors will interact to change retailing, the way
we communicate with consumers across the new path to purchase and profoundly impact the way we shop.

Retailing to the Customer of One in an era of digital connectivity and the Internet of Things means that the customer, their location and relevant data about them creates the ability for instant communication and hyper-personalisation.

The challenge for retailers, brand-owners and marketeers is to exploit the new era of digital pervasiveness and use it to embrace every individual as “the Customer of One.”

Understand how this will impact retail as sensors, location, materials, analytics and environment interact in new ways, changing the way we articulate, communicate and drive purpose for shoppers and ROI.

EVENING: SHOWTIME…

SMART EVERYTHING EXPERIENCE

An interactive “fashion-esque experience” featured an eclectic mix of the concepts, products, applications and ingenuity that will revolutionise the way we sell and build brands. From smart shelves, wearables, smart packaging to, well, smart everything…

THIS NEW WORLD CAME TO LIFE FROM THE DIFFERING PERSPECTIVES OF SHOPPERS, RETAILERS, BRAND-OWNERS AND OUR CUSTOMERS’ LIVES.

A unique, immersive experience for your senses, imagination and brain. Some of the ideas, concepts, products and innovations revealed made us gasp… some made us laugh… and some we wanted to put to use immediately…

…But combined they tell a story of what The Future of Retail in an IoT World will be. And where the opportunities for you lie.

COME WITH US ON THIS EXCITING JOURNEY.
