The Future of Shopping: Retail and eCommerce

It’s not just that shopping habits have evolved so much over the last few years, but that they continue to do so, drastically, ceaselessly, and at a relentless pace. The retail and ecommerce landscape is consequently wrought with both challenge and opportunities, as brands explore new ways to drive consumers in-store, and look to new partners and emerging technologies to bring their wares to the customer, wherever they may be.

From inventory availability to loyalty programs and synchronized support, both in-store and across devices, retail brands are in a unique position to capitalize on these changing dynamics to build meaningful customer affinity on the path to purchase and beyond.

After taking stock of the latest omni-channel retailing trends and loyalty program strategies, we’ll challenge our panelists for predictions about what customer experience, ecommerce, and loyalty may look like for retailers in the not-so-distant future.
