The Future of Retail
Wednesday, April 10, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM (PDT)
San Francisco, CA
ABOUT THE DISCUSSION:
Digital technologies are reshaping our physical spaces, and nowhere is this more apparent than in our cities. Big data changes how and where we build. GPS-driven services impact the ways we move and interact. And social apps connect us to millions of people, fundamentally altering choices — like what to eat — that were once essentially private decisions.
The Future of Retail panel will feature Mark Dwight, CEO of Rickshaw Bagworks, a San Francisco-based manufacturer of on-demand bags. Also featured will be Kevin McKenzie, Global Chief Digital Officer at Westfield Labs, a new innovation lab within the Westfield Group that explores the merging of digital experiences and physical space.
Questions covered during the conversation will include:
As inventory is moving online, what happens to our retail spaces?
How is technology disrupting local manufacturing?
How do digital products impact physical experiences?
