This event we’re getting back to business: focusing on the customer and creating a seamless experience between the store and our valued customers. Whether it’s pop ups, socially distanced experiences or a hybrid of both, the influence of in-store on retailers will remain a priority for many in the industry.

For that reason, we curated our virtual event to address the critical challenges, trends and opportunities that companies are encountering in the rebounding retail market of today. At Future Stores, we explore both current developments and investigate the best ways to think ahead of the next curve – helping you to reimagine your role in the dynamically shifting retail landscape. Let’s come together to share ideas on the future of customer experience, the development of data and logistics, and the opportunities around strategic partnerships!

The retail industry is going through a period of rapid change brought on by changing consumer behavior and the accessibility of technology. Keep up the pace and join us for keynotes, fireside chats, panels and interactive roundtable discussions that will improve your digital strategy, master the in-store experience and boost your omni-channel strategy post-pandemic.

Here's what you get when you attend:

• Learn From A Variety of In-Store Experts, Debating Together
Learn from multiple, live conversations so you gain unbiased perspectives on what's working right now. (They might even disagree on some points - but you'll get the full picture.)

• Executive-Level Content
It’s a Future Stores Event, from the Community uniting In-Store executives since 2013 - so you can trust the quality of information, the presentations, and the format itself.

• Finally, a Virtual Event Where You Can INTERACT
Join our virtual roundtable discussions where you’ll get face-to-face interaction with speakers, sponsors and your peers!
