It is a transformative time in retail, in China we call it New Retail. The shopper is clearly in the driver’s seat, enabled by technology to remain constantly connected and more empowered than ever before to drive changes in shopping behavior. “Everywhere commerce” has taken root, allowing consumers to shop however, wherever, and whenever they want—whether in stores, online, by mobile, voice activation or click-and-collect. The rules of retailing indeed are being rewritten in this time of transformative change. Innovation, collaboration, consolidation, integration, and automation will be required to reinvigorate commerce, profoundly impacting the way retailers do business now, and in the future.
Empower New Retail is the theme of Smart Retail 2018, 200+ major retailers and brands with total 500+ director or above level representatives gather in Shanghai on 20-21 September.
