Eversheds Sutherland’s Annual Retail Conference 2017
31 January 2017
Retail continues to operate as one of the fastest paced industries with technology and innovation continuing at the fore, to ensure businesses remain competitive and provide customers with the service they demand. Delivering an effective omni-channel and seamless fulfilment offering is key. The connected consumer and delivering on their expectations to be able to search online, buy in store, use convenient payment methods and return items hassle-free, is core to this. Beyond that, customers are expecting increased personalisation, such as offers and discounts, and a retailer’s prominence in search engines and social media platforms are fundamental factors for future success.
Retailers will need to face and overcome a number of challenges to remain competitive. At Eversheds Sutherland’s annual retail conference this year, we will be joined by a number of leading industry figures and our team of experts, to guide you through what’s in store and how you can help your business prepare for the future. Discussions and topics will range from navigating the impact of Brexit, GDPR, the future of technology in retail, increased compliance regulation and building the legal team of tomorrow. Delegates will also have the opportunity to get an insight into and get interactive with some of the most cutting edge and transformational technology.
Helen Dickson OBE, Chief Executive at BRC and Richard Lim, CEO at Retail Economics will be joining us as keynote speakers to share their thoughts on the future outlook for the sector.
We hope you can join us for what promises to be a thought provoking day with many lively discussions.
